The article writer gets a teensy thing wrong: Chris Sarandon only does Jack Skellington's speaking voice. The singing voice is Danny Elfman himself.

Oh and the first Die Hard gets the award for worst coroner/paramedics of all time, who the hell puts a guy in a body bag/gurney with his machine gun?

I was a little ashamed it took me until like my 8th time watching to notice that mistake.

I'm glad the Muppet Christmas Carol was included, but A Muppet Family Christmas was pretty great too.

And, for fark's sake, Die Hard falls solidly within the "action" and "Christmas" genres - I don't think anyone is trying to be shocking by claiming it as such anymore. It's been a Christmas movie since it came out.

If you are male and are old enough to have been at least a pre-teen when there was no internet, the women from this kind of movie and the Sears catalog =d spank bank material.

I do love that movie though.

bobug: No White Christmas?! It's the ubiquitous holiday soundtrack. Who HASN'T heard it?


Holiday Inn (the original title of the movie that features White Christmas) is at #7.

NetOwl: omeganuepsilon: vrax: Oh yes.

Ha! Pretty good, imo. You wrote just little enough for me to not be completely certain, but I can honestly say, that's the only thing I think about when I hear the song or read the title. Sure it's been in a hundred movies...

Speaking of transformed songs...Some ditty's from the 50's become excellent haunting background music as used in some horror shows, or shows about musicians dying. It's the tinny or canned quality I think, somewhat static-y noise that makes them sound a bit ethereal, like a radio station you can't quite tune in.

Awesome effect, I think.

I love how Lost did that with Petula Clark.


Nat King Cole's 'Unforgettable' in Watchmen, playing during the Comedian's murder.

Chris Sarandon delivers Jack's Lament with Shakespearean relish before leaping through the note-perfect pastiche of festive numbers

Isn't that because Danny Elfman himself did the singing for Jack?

Die Hard?

Satisfied.

Is it strange that before I even clicked the link I was thinking "They probably went with Die Hard".

As long as the Muppets Christmas Carol is represented respectably, I'm happy.

Anytime I hear the song "Do you hear what I hear", I instantly think of Gremlins.
