Happy birthday to singer/composer Danny Elfman. I was a huge fan of Oingo Boingo (OC in the house!) and Elfman’s scores for movies like “The Nightmare Before Christmas” are nothing short of genius. When Danny Elfman decided to leave Oingo Boingo in the late 90s, he meant it and hasn’t succumbed to the “throw some cash at me and let’s reunite tour.” I have to respect that decision even though I’d really love to hear a live version of “Gratitude” and “Nothing Bad Ever Happens To Me.”
