Danny Elfman brought all the hits during his set at Coachella last night. In addition to tracks off his latest solo album Big Mess (his first in 37 years), Elfman also played a handful of Oingo Boingo songs, as well as some of his biggest scores. The composer treated fans to a Nightmare Before Christmas medley of “Jack’s Lament / This Is Halloween / What’s This?” He also performed “Breakfast Machine” from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and “Ice Dance / The Grand Finale” from Edward Scissorhands, as well as two of his most iconic themes: The Simpsons and Batman.
