Big from the motion picture...score by Danny Elfman

The soundtrack to Tim Burton's neo-classic moving picture Big Fish (2003), starring Ewan McGregor, Helena Bonham Carter, Marion Cotillard and Jessica Lange, collects classic pop songs and a score of longtime collaborator Danny Elfman (Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, Mars Attacks!, and others). 

The soundtrack also contains a new song from Pearl Jam, specifically written for the movie: 'Man of the Hour'. The soundtrack's songs range from Bing Crosby's early 1930's Jazz hit 'Dinah' to the 1950's nostalgia of Buddy Holly's 'Everyday' and Elvis Presley's 'All Shook Up', right up to the 1960's and 1970's recollections of Canned Heat's 'Let's Work Together' and 'Ramblin' Man' by the Allman Brothers Band. The album was nominated for the Academy Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score
