Avril in Wonderland, Labyrinth
While I have mixed thoughts on Burton’s latest film creation, the revisioning of ALICE IN WONDERLAND in Disney Digital 3-D, I am addicted to the soundtrack by Danny Elfman and the single released by Punk Pop Princess, Avril Lavigne – “Alice (Underground).” Check out the video here!
Tim Burton provides his thoughts on Avril’s interpretation of the story and use of the film’s rich, but dark, imagery here:
FROM THE RABBIT HOLE TO THE LABYRINTH
Interestingly, I also recently stumbled upon this mashup of the same song set to imagery from Jim Henson’s classic fantasy LABYRINTH (1986)…it works! I hadn’t thought about the similarities until now, but I do kind of wish that Burton’s film offered some of the emotional elements that Henson captured nearly 15 years ago…
Any way you slice it, it is a great song…
~Calliope (in Underland)
And just as an extra…here is a clip of the first track from Elfman’s always genius score for Burton’s ALICE!
Oh, Alice, dear where have you been?
So near, so far or in between?
What have you heard what have you seen?
Alice, Alice, please, Alice!
Oh, tell us are you big or small
To try this one or try them all
Its such a long, long way to fall
Alice, Alice, oh, Alice
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..
