It’s a Dead Man’s Party; Who Could Ask for More? Danny Elman Wrote a Horror Theme for Trump’s Stalkerish Debate Behavior


Oingo mothereffin’ Boingo, y’all. For the uninitiated, that’s Danny Elfman’s excellent 80s band name, minus the expletive in the middle. You may know them for their Weird Science theme … I prefer Just Another Day, or even DEAD MAN’S PARTY .(*coughRepublicanscough*)

Elfman just performed a glorious public service by providing Donald Trump’s creepy antics at the second Presidential debate with appropriately horrific theme music. As the composer (he’s scored everything from Edward Scissorhands to The Girl on the Train) noted …

Watching Trump lurching behind Hillary during the debate felt a bit like a zombie movie, like at any moment he was going to attack her, rip off her head, and eat her brains.

… so he wrote a most excellent soundtrack for the candidate’s stalkerish behavior:

That is just sheer, terrifying perfection. Eating Hillary’s brain is probably as close as Trump could ever hope to get to actually having knowledge in his head, so I’d just like to advise Madam Almost-President: you might want to up your Secret Service detail.
