If you’ve been to the movies in the last 30 years, you’ve heard a Danny Elfman track. He was also the lead singer and songwriter of Oingo Boingo. Elfman began his soundtrack career in 1985 when Tim Burton asked him to do the soundtrack for Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure. He went on to do the soundtracks for Batman, Men in Black, and Silver Linings Playbook, as well as scores of others. Elfman has since revealed that he suffers permanent hearing damage from his early rock years and has ruled out any Oingo Boingo reunion.
These two tracks are a dichotomy between his musical styles.
