Edward Scissorhands : Soundtrack

The Edward Scissorhands remake rumor got me thinkin'. Danny Elfman kicks ass! Most of Elfman's early scores are solid in their entirety, but Edward Scissorhand's score goes well beyond that creating one of the most endearing at atmospheric scores in the last 20 years. Of course that Tom Jones song at the end just kills the whole mood... but you can't blame Danny for that one.
Tom Jones... WTF? Seriously now. Let's have the guy who wrote Sex Bomb appear on a soundtrack to a gothic romance of sorts. He'll fit right in.
That's like having Avril Lavigne on the Alice In Wonderland soundtrack. Actions punishable by death.

  1. If anyone was going to re-make Edward Scissorhands, it'd probably be that Tim Burton guy.
    He's got this thing where he takes a classic story & makes it darker/eerie/more twisted.

  2. Arran, please tell me you're joking? Please tell me you know Tim Burton directed the original Edward Scissorhands?
