Welcome to Completing Edward. In case you don't get the

The Texas Ranger has written a very thorough, detailed,
and entertaining commentary on the music of Edward Scissorhands,
with a track-by-track analysis of the soundtrack, and there's even lots
of info on the cues that didn't make it to the album. To better illustrate
some of the Ranger's points, I've made MIDI's of the main themes. You'll
only hear the actual theme and no harmony. (They took me less than 10
minutes to make!)
We both hope you enjoy
this commentary and if you find something wrong, please let us know.
