    In the editing segment on the DVD, Bob Murawski states that he cut that scene to that song. Why then would Danny write a cue for it? But hot damn, there is indeed a cue called “Happy Montage”, which follows the “Uncle Ben” scene. Ah hell, I still think the song worked at that moment.

    The additional scenes will not feature any significant Elfman action cues. They are merely scene extensions, etc. (as talked about by editor Bob Murawski on the DVD).

    As for the “Raindrops” scene, I like that. It didn’t replace any of Elfman’s score and it’s a big laugh in theaters. It just goes to show you how much character that Raimi and Murawski bring to a film, rather then the bland, pseudo-hip bullshit from guys like Bay, that DAREDEVIL hack Johnson and Tim “Taxi” Story (the upcoming FANTASTIC FOUR).

    Maybe it’ll mean a return of the more lyrical stuff of BLACK BEAUTY.

    I noticed that the end titles also credit Debney with “Cake Girl”. I remember there was a lot of confusion when the film came out and everyone was posting the cue title as “Take Girl”. Glad that’s cleared up.

    Hardly. There is a whole crop of young composers up and coming, plus the guys in their fifties are still cranking out good stuff. Guys like Elfman, Shore, Howard and sometimes even Horner! Thomas Newman, Hans Zimmer, Alan Silvestri, Christopher Young… Film music is still in very good hands.

    Evanescence is not “emo” — they are what you would call Christian “new rock”. Emo is all about the screaming, so call it screamo!

    Spider-Fan, that Elfman qoute is precisely why I strive to keep the information on this site as factually correct as possible (a job made easier if I had some Elfman connections, which I don’t) and keep the personal discussion off the site (I have zero tolerance for that sort of thing).

    Anyways, nows as good a time as any to announce I have plans for the first major rehaul of this site in many, many years. I’m not sure what I plan to do, but brightening up the text color is one change I’m seriously considering ;)

    There’s also a shot of the cue list in the sound/music featurette that clearly shows Elfman wrote a cue for the pizza delivery scene (“Pizza Man” as he called it).

    Steve’s score for the TEXAS CHAINSAW remake served it’s purpose (but it was a bore on CD). Hopefully AMITYVILLE will provide the opportunity for something other than drones and atmosphere.

    It’s a cue specifically written by Danny Elfman for the MIB trailer.

    I agree — Depp looks strangely… Asexual.

    This question has been answered many, many times before (so I’m making this thread a sticky for the Christmas season). The recording (“Main Title/Ice Dance”) is from Silva Screen’s CINEMA CHORAL CLASSICS II album. The City of Prague Philharmonic performs with the Crouch End Festival Chorus.

    I didn’t double-over laughing, but did get a few good laughs from the movie. Certainly runs out of steam before the final reel.

    Their version of “This is Halloween” should be retitled “This is Horrible”.

    There are many, but here’s a quick and easy one:

    “Main Titles” from MARS ATTACKS! From the first rumblings in the brass to the wild tempo change into the final march, I want to argue that this is Elfman’s coolest main title.

    You might also try Marc Shaiman’s THE ADDAMS FAMILY scores (although the first album is out-of-print).

    I may have to end up doing that… Only problem is that I have to recover my system first to get to my files, and I can’t recover until I figure out what my administrator password is… Despite the fact that I never logged in as an administrator or set a password!

    The Hollywood Studio Symphony is a moniker used as part of a re-use fees deal with record labels. If a soundtrack album credits all members of a particular L.A. session orchestra, the union cuts the label a deal on re-use fees (meaning more music on the album).

    The Hollywood Studio Symphony is not a traditional symphony orchestra in that the same members are not used every time. Each film score is generally performed by a pool of musicians who are contracted on a per score basis.

    It makes sense. In fact, I think this is right down Schifrin’s alley. We need more music from elders like him.
