Alice in Wonderland (Elfman, 2010)

     Danny Elfman's partnership with director Tim Burton is as great as any composer-director relationship in film history, producing many wonderful scores including Batman, Batman Returns, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, etc...well it's a long list!  Alice in Wonderland is a more recent film, and it shows that the "magic" still exists.

     The soundtrack got a fairly decent release when the film came out, though it sometimes featured alternate versions from the final film edit.  The final edit of the end battle is particularly fragmented from the original score, and it would be nice someday to hear a "film version" of that whole sequence (apparently the scoring of this film was a bit chaotic - see Filmtracks review).

     The 2011 "Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box" set expanded the Alice score with many more cues, though a totally complete score release still doesn't exist.  One bonus track, "The Parapet", can be found on the 25th Anniversary USB "Skeleton" key as well.


     The score has all of the usual Elfman/Burton signature textures, high choir, high metallic tones, lively winds and dramatic strings.  The main theme, "Alice's Theme" is threaded throughout the score, and it's many elements are reused in many different guises as sub-themes.  It's absolutely one of my favorite Elfman themes of all time, and pretty much overshadows all of the other themes here for me, but reviews from Filmtracks and Movie Music UK dutifully note a total of 3 Alice-related themes, each representing a different point in Alice's life:
  • Past: "Little Alice" theme (in tracks 2, 15, 23, 26, 28, etc), with a melody which rises and falls in waves, derived from the vocal melody in "Alice's Theme", representing Alice's previous journey to Underland as a child
  • Present: "Alice's Theme" in track 1, the "main" theme, based on a 6/8 rhythm, a rising harmony and a melody which leaps upwards and then spirals downwards, used all over the place, especially heroic moments
  • Future: "Proposal" theme (in tracks 3, 16, 23), opens with a rising figure that falls or rises further on the 5th note, representing a conservative, Victorian marriage
  • Red Queen theme: (track 8) fateful and dark figure
     The Cheshire Cat gets an somewhat oily violin glissando motif sometimes, which also appears with Absolem at least once.  Filmtracks also mentions a "creepy, deep woodwind and string motif" in tracks 12, 27, 30. 


     "Alice's Theme", the end credit song (track 1 on the CD) has lyrics written by Elfman himself.  The structure is described below:

Alice's Theme 
0:00
  • Introduction: string rhythm, wordless choir 
0:40
  • 1st Verse: percussion, winds, brass enters
Oh, Alice, dear where have you been?
So near, so far, so in-between
What have you heard? What have you seen?
Alice! Alice! Please, Alice!
1:12
  • 2nd Verse (bigger drums/brass)
Oh, tell us, are you big or small?
To try this one or try them all
It's such a long, long way to fall
Alice! Alice! Oh, Alice!
1:44
  • Bridge: high metallic percussion enters, brass ornaments, timpani
How can you know this way not that?
You choose the door, you choose the path
Perhaps you should be coming back
Another day, another day
And nothing is quite what is seems
You're dreaming! Are you dreaming? Oh, Alice!
2:24
  • Instrumental Verse led by winds
2:40
  • Verse developed, modulated and featuring strings struck with bow wood (col legno)
Oh, how will you find your way?
Oh, how will you find your way?
(soft toned instrument enters, like wine glasses)
No time for tears today. No time for tears today.
No time for tears today. No time for tears today.
3:39
  • Bridge: features a syncopated glockenspiel/bass drum layer
So many doors, how did you choose?
So much to gain, so much to lose
So many things got in your way
No time today, no time today
Be careful not to lose your head
Remember what the Dormouse said, Alice!
4:03
  • 3rd Verse (bigger drums/brass)
Did someone pull you by the hand?
How many miles to Wonderland?
Please tell us so we'll understand
Alice! Alice! Oh, Alice!
4:36
  • Coda: strings/choir
Oh, how will you find your way?
Oh, how will you find your way?

     The aforementioned Filmtracks article analyzes the score extremely well and is recommended reading (though it does spend just a little too much time on "name that influence", especially if one doesn't have an encyclopedic knowledge of film cues).  On a side note, the only thing I don't like about this score is the "Futterwacken" song - that whole sequence is kind of a low point for me...fortunately it is not included on the normal CD soundtrack.  Also, almost all of the cues on the CD are edits/cross-fades of the film versions, but for listening purposes, the guide below should work very well.  The first chart is based on the chronological film sequence (handy for using iTunes to create a custom playlist).  Following that is the same chart but sequenced in album order, covering both the regular soundtrack and the Music Box Expanded edition (the second column is the chronological sequence in the film, tracks 25-39 and 46 are found in the 25th Anniversary Box).
