I had this whole post I’d intended to write, but then I discovered this, and it was so amazing and sweeping that I don’t want to write about that other thing, I just want you to listen to this.
Movie soundtracks can get a bad rap as not being “real” music, but without the soundtrack, a movie would suck. This walk down memory lane really highlights both the emotion of the Tim Burton films featured as well as the pure musicality and skill put into developing the sound and the feelings these songs produce. I don’t love every movie in this mix, but wow, is it powerful when all showcased this way, with first-class musicians and high-quality behind-the-scenes art. Take a moment to drink it in. It’s really fun.
So go listen to it, already!
