Danny Elfman's music for the Tim Burton film (dare I say "classic"?) Beetlejuice is tremendous fun. Even after 10 years (Yes, it's been out that long), I LOVE the music on this CD. The Main Title track remains my single most favorite instrumental composition of all time. If you're in the market for a fun soundtrack, or if you're looking for Classic Elfman, buy this one!

This is a great soundtrack from the early Elfman. If you've heard his other movie scores you should like this one since it's in the same vein as his darker Batman style works. The Harry Belafonte songs are nice touch.

The music here makes you wonder why Danny Elfman stuck with (Oingo) Boingo for so long. While he may have had a few catchy songs there, his talent for motion picture composing is awesome. Certainly, he and Tim Burton are nearly inseparable (witness The Nightmare Before Christmas and Batman), so Elfman's easy to peg. On the surface, it's tempting to say that once you hear one of his motion picture compositions, you've heard them all, but I suspect there's more nuance to his music that that. This album moves easily from the eerie and ethereal to the warm and heartfelt--often seconds apart. It's all dark, though, being music for a tart comedy about the afterworld. The two Harry Belafonte songs keep the gloom away, and add the perfect touch of whimsicality--both in the movie and in this album. It's hard to erase from your mind.

This soundtrack has been hailed by many as the greatest to any horror/halloween film ever. And they are quite right. Catchy, large and sweeping, it beats out any other in it's genre. I've heard this music used everywhere, even in previews for other movies.
Danny Elfman and Tim Burton have a thing for working together, and the result is always spectacualr (except maybe their remake of Planet of the Apes, where neither was at their best, but I'll let that one slide)
This soundtrack is many things, but above all fun. If you are a fan of Elfman or like soundtracks period, this is a good one. And those looking for the tracks Day-O and Jump in Line, you'll find them on here, but not the other calypso tracks or Lydia's opera theme.

This classic movie soundtrack is such a winner! All your favorite music from the movie. The sound quality is a little on the low side volume wise, but it's from the late 80's, before CD was even readily available. Couldn't beat the price or the instant download.

Love this film. My fav Tim Burton film, hands down. This album is the complete soundtrack from the film, and I am absolutely giddy about this purchase. Try to imagine Beetlejuice without the theme song (or any of the other amazing songs from the score written by the amazingly talented Danny Elfman). You can't, am I right? Don't miss out. Buy this before it's too late, and whatever you do, don't say "his" name three times!!! ;)

Danny Elfman provides an excellent score to Tim Burton's Beetlejuice (his second film, if I'm not mistaking). The music captures the comical elements of the film, but never loses the gothic theme which is now a trademark of a Burton/Elfman film. The two caribbean songs by Harry Belafonte (Day-O and Jump In The Line) are amusing and adds a nice diversity to the soundtrack, without breaking the "feel" of it. Tim Burton tried to add a musical number to Batman without succeeding to the fullest, here - luckily - it works absolutely fine. This is a great soundtrack, and you don't need to be an Elfman fan to appreciate it.

This is a very scary but also funny film. The soundtrack is the same. Ghostly sounds permeate through most of the score. "Travel Music" is one of the few parts of the score that is upbeat. The main title is very interesting. It Includes a couple of notes I've never heard anywhere else. It really sets the tone for the rest of the music to come. I also liked the inclusion of two Harry Belafonte songs.
