The World's Greatest Music
From The Simpsons through to Tim Burton's latest movie Big Eyes, Danny Elfman is one of Hollywood's most in-demand composers. Here are a selection of facts about some of his most cherished scores.
Born in Los Angeles in 1953, Danny Elfman originally had no intentions of being a composer. “If you’d have asked me when I was 17 or 18-years-old what I wanted to be," he has said, "I may have said cinematographer or maybe a director…but I never would have said music; that was quite accidental.” As lead singer and songwriter for the new wave band Oingo Boingo, his big break came with Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, his first collaboration with director Tim Burton.
