Music by Danny Elfman
In shops now
While I was watching the super-drippy Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, I saw Sarah McLachlan all bundled up on a float with little animals and ankle-biters. Her song on here, “Ordinary Miracle” is quite lovely in the way her “When She Loved Me” song was lovely on the soundtrack to “Toy Story 2.” It’s not life-altering, but light and fluffy. Danny Elfman is also playing from the school of light and fluffy. This is actually a very joyous score, not the usual macabre dancing skeletons and whatnot that we often hear from him. It actually makes me want to gather up the neighborhood chil’runs and go see the movie.
