Happy Birthday Danny Elfman!

On this day, May 29, 1953, Daniel Robert Elfman was born in Los Angeles, CA.

This man would go on to lead a band of unlikely stars into the spotlight of alternative rock with Oingo Boingo, as well as becoming one of the most well known and loved film and television composers of all time with his scores including iconic successes such as Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Batman Returns, Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Men In Black, Good Will Hunting, Spider-Man, Milk, and the theme music for the hit television shows "Tales from the Crypt", "The Simpsons", and "Desperate Housewives". He has won a myriad of awards and is both a Grammy and Academy Award nominee.

His music has brought much joy and inspiration to my life since I was a child. I look forward to the continuation of his magnificently original work and wish him the happiest of birthdays!

Long live Danny Elfman.
