Kids Commute Episode 36 - Spooky Week! "This is Halloween," from THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, by Danny Elfman.

Welcome to Day Two of Spooky Week on IPR's Kids Commute - classical music for kids! This week, we're serving up some eerie Halloween-themed musical treats.

Today we'll hear music from the scary citizens of Halloween Town in the film THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.  They may be scary folks, but they want you to know they're not mean - they're just doing their jobs!

By the way, singing lead as Jack Skellington, the Halloween King, is the composer himself - Danny Elfman.
