Elfman relates, "Like The Nightmare Before Christmas, writing songs
for Corpse Bride was a real treat. Tim's visuals make the perfect complement
for the kind of stuff I love doing most. These wonderfully fun, dark, offbeat
tales are the perfect platform for me to write odd, slightly twisted, obscure
styles such as my favorite musical era...1930's jazz. I only hope we get to
do more in the future."
The soundtrack also features four new songs written by Elfman with lyricist
John August, including "According To Plan" performed by Albert Finney,
Joanna Lumley, Tracey Ullman and Paul Whitehouse; "Tears To Shed"
performed by Helena Bonham Carter, Jane Horrocks and Enn Reitel and "Remains
Of The Day" and "Wedding Finale," both performed by Danny Elfman,
Jane Horrocks, Paul Baker, Alison Jiear and Gary Martin.
