‘SCORE: The Podcast’ has started its 3rd season with a very special guest, Danny Elfman, who during 100 minutes talks about the series of wacky coincidences that kickstarted his musical career, why he only scores four movies a year, the music that will be included in his Coachella debut in October 2020 (hopefully!), how Michael Jackson was supposed to write ‘Batman’ theme, or the story behind the creation of the music of ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and Elfman taking the role of Jack Skellington, among many other things.
“In this supersized Season 3 premiere, Robert and Kenny talk about changes to the show due to coronavirus, Kenny’s anxiety trying to land Danny Elfman for the season premiere, and listen to Randy Newman’s amazing COVID-19 song. Then, Danny Elfman (Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Good Will Hunting, Men In Black, Spider-Man) joins for an extended interview about the series of wacky coincidences that kickstarted his musical career, and why he first questioned director Tim Burton wanting him to score movies. Later, Danny talks about teaching himself to write music, getting into scuffles in Oingo Boingo, not wanting to co-write the Batman score with Prince, and why he only scores four movies a year. He explains how The Simpsons theme earned him his SAG card, and hints at his top-secret plans for a punk-orchestra opening act at Coachella. This episode is presented by Spitfire Audio.
