The Elf Man
"Smithers had thwarted my earlier attempt to take candy from a baby, but with him out of the picture, I was free to wallow in my own crapulence." -C. Montgomery Burns
Today's song is an homage to two things: one of the greatest composers and THEE greatest television show of all time. Mr. Danny Elfman wrote the incomparable main title theme for The Simpsons. Elfman was leader of the awesome Oingo Boingo and often collaborates with Tim Burton for film scores (and he voiced Jack Skellington). These other achievements pale in comparison to his creation of the greatest theme song to one of the most sensational television shows ever made.
