Written by Danny Elfman for the 1993 stop motion animation film, The Nightmare Before Christmas, it has also been covered by Marilyn Manson.

It's was a really difficult one to try to work out, as part are spoken, parts are sung with multiple voices in chorus, and the whole thing has loads of random off-notes to give it the eerie feeling - I've done my best to give you bits to play and work with anyway :)

I hope you enjoy - please comment if you spot any bits which can be improved or added, I always value your feedback :) Thank you and happy practice!
