Nightmare Before Christmas, The

Burton and Elfman collaborated intensively on the modern film musical The Nightmare Before Christmas, for which Elfman contributed the singing voice of Jack Skellington, as well as writing the lyrics and composing the songs and score. Elfman's music for the film contains themes and elements such as a pipe organ and choirs, thus helping to create a fantasy-like gothic atmosphere.
