We've officially entered that month where it's okay to play festive songs and talk openly about the topic of Christmas without scornful judgment. Yes, it's December! Which means you're likely to see various renditions of popular Christmas tunes pop up here in the next few weeks.
Well, if you're a traditionalist then I have no doubt you will enjoy the tunes to come. But for this week let us enjoy a Christmas-themed selection of a different kind.
My personal choice of the festive tunes comes from the soundtrack of my favourite Christmas movie, which one could say does anything but follow tradition (of the Christmas kind). Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas appeals to those who like something a little different when everyone else seems to be getting all sentimental, and on top of that, is simply one of the best stop motion films you will find on the market. If you haven't yet seen it, try making a point to do so this year. It's also a Disney film, if that helps (though best not to get into the technicalities of that now).
This is Halloween is arguably the most iconic tune from the films soundtrack, composed by regular Burton collaborator Danny Elfman.
