‘Beetlejuice’ soundtrack to receive 30th anniversary reissue

It may be time to “shake, shake, shake señor” because the “Beetlejuice” soundtrack is about to get the reissue treatment. On Thursday (Dec. 6), it was announced that the soundtrack for the 1988 Tim Burton-directed film would be coming back to life to celebrate the flick’s 30th anniversary. Simply titled Beetlejuice 30th Anniversary Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, the re-release is due out this Friday, Dec. 7 via Waxwork Records.

The upcoming remastered album will feature all of Danny Elfman’s music from the original soundtrack as well as the two Harry Belafonte songs that were heavily featured in the movie — “Jump in the Line” and “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song).”

The reissue come in the form of a 180-gram vinyl with two different designs to pick from; a half-black, half-white version or a “Beetlejuice” swirl which will mimic the demon’s iconic suit. The vinyl will also include original artwork by Justin Erickson of Toronto-based independent studio, Phantom City Creative.

The soundtrack will be available beginning this Friday, Dec. 7, via Waxwork’s website.

The soundtrack reissue isn’t only piece of “Beetlejuice”-related news fans have received within the last year. For a while, there were talks that a “Beetlejuice” sequel was in the works, but sadly, both Burton and Betelgeuse himself Michael Keaton have said that “it’s possible that ship has sailed.

Back in 2017, it was reported that a new writer had been hired to rewrite the original pitch for the sequel and even Lydia herself Winona Ryder said that she would be open to returning to the role.

Even if the sequel doesn’t happen, fans can always look forward to the Broadway adaptation of the film. Beetlejuice: The Musical just wrapped its run in Washington D.C. and will rise from the dead at the Winter Garden Theatre in March 2019. According to press material from the musical, the show will be “ruder, raunchier, and frankly more repellent than ever” and “really f***ing explicit.”

Alex Brightman (School of Rock) will take on the ghost with the most while Sophia Anne Caruso (Blackbird) will play everyone’s favorite sarcastic goth, Lydia.

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Soundtrack Artists Unmasked


While we will be the first to admit that we have read the Fifty Shades of Grey series (several times, we might add), we will also be the first to admit that the casting for the movie is not what we imagined nor are we that excited for it following all the publicity behind it.

One thing we are excited for is the soundtrack for the upcoming film.

Since the new version of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” made its debut during the first trailer for the film, we’ve been wondering what the soundtrack would sound like considering music plays a role in the book series.

Yesterday afternoon, the full tracklist for the soundtrack was unveiled and like we had already known, Beyoncé, The Weeknd, and Ellie Goulding are some of the artists on the list, but between Sia, Frank Sinatra, and The Rolling Stones you will find an interesting addition: Danny Elfman.

Yes, the man who voiced Jack Skellington and has written countless scores for Tim Burton will be contributing two scores for the soundtrack: one in honor of our main characters Ana and Christian, and another titled, “Did That Hurt?”
