Happy birthday, Danny Elfman

Danny Elfman, born in 1953, is 57 today.

Danny, who has what would be called a tendency toward the bizarre, morbid, or otherwise otherworldly, is often chosen to write movie music and songs that fit those themes. And he does a fine job, too.
The first song is his greatest pop song--out of many great songs--for his former band, Oingo Boingo, and the second is from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.
