One of the coolest things I've ever got to go to in New York City was An Evening with Tim Burton: Cinema's Demon Barber at the Home of Jazz in Lincoln Center. It was just before Sweeney Todd, which he directed, starring The Twilight Saga's Jamie Campbell Bower hit theaters.
I hadn't realized until that night how many iconic films Tim Burton was behind -- from Batman and Edward Scissorhands to The Nightmare Before Christmas and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. And of course, more recently, Alice in Wonderland!
A big part of the reason all those films have become such a big part of our culture is because of the music -- which I recently found out was all written by Danny Elfman.
And now comes the best of both worlds -- The Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box. It's a limited edition collection that comes with 19 hours of music from the movies (including seven hours of previously unreleased music!), an exclusive hardcover book with a forward from Johnny Depp, and the coolest part --Â a skeleton key USB flash drive with all the music on it (yup, that's it in the bottom right corner of the pic!).
The Music Box is on sale now at elfmanburton.com, but hurry! There's only a limited number available.
What do you think of Tim Burton's films?
Can't wait to hear from you!
