Sally's Song



This is a clip taken from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, my favourite Christmas cum Halloween movie of all time. I love Sally's Song very much and I was delighted to find out today that they did a re-release of the movie soundtrack in October this year, and included a cover of Sally's Song sung by Fiona Apple. Here's the same clip but with Fiona's version.



I've listened to the full song by Fiona and although I prefer the original song done by Catherine O' Hara, who did the voice for Sally, I think Fiona's version is still commendable.

And if you have never watched The Nightmare Before Christmas before, then you should go grab the DVD or VCD and watch it soon, preferably on the night before Christmas aye.

Update: Sing along to Sally's Song with this YouTube karaoke video. (Thanks Mike)

I prefer the original version too. Somehow Fiona Apple's voice is too low for the song.

Catherine O Hara's voice is way nicer than Fiona Apple's.

I love Nightmare Before Christmas. It is so much better than Corpse Bride.
