Mr. Halloween

Film_composer_danny_elfman_522335

++Yo, I updated the SOG YouTube page with a few recent favorites. These are highly recommended so definitely check them out!: Kendrick Lamar, ADHD; Orchid, Capricorn;  Slow Club, Two Cousins;  Max Richter, Luminous;  Ron Ron Hey Honey; Ed Sheeran Small Bump and lastly Brandon Flowers' The Clock Was Ticking which might be my favorite discovery of the past year.

++Ooh, Ed Sheeran plays Hotel Cafe on 2/12/12.

++Know who doesn't get enough respect? Danny Elfman, who not only composed the theme for the Simpsons, but he did the brilliant This Is Halloween, Dead Man's Party and the music for the Pee Wee Herman movies. His wiki is pretty fascinating, what with the malaria, hearing loss and how he dated Kim Gordon...

Here are samples of Elfman's fave composers (he's got impeccable taste): Bernard Herrmann, Franz Waxman, Nino Rota, Erich Wolfgang Korngold.
