Danny Elfman's music climbs 4 places in this year's chart

It's unsurprising that the modern fable of Edward Scissorhands (directed by Tim Burton and featuring a breakthrough performance from Johnny Depp) has since been adapted into a ballet by Matthew Bourne. But it's Danny Elfman's score for the film that has found the most musical favour. It's classic Elfman: ethereal, otherworldly and, when it needs to be, humorous, too.
