Advent Calendar 2012: Now That's What I Call Christmas Movie Music! (1990s) Print E-mail

With Home Alone and Home Alone 2, Chris Columbus set the standard for the modern Christmas movie - and it's rarely been bettered since. The same is true of John Williams' fantastic soundtrack, which leaps from sinister to sweet by way of beautiful choirs and tinkly celestas. It's a flawless album. 

But while the current array of Christmas cinematic offerings are slim, the 90s saw a surprising number of contenders for Home Alone's crown. From Danny Elfman's The Nightmare Before Christmas to The Muppet Christmas Carol's carol-referencing score by Paul Williams (the guy who also scored Bugsy Malone and The Muppet Movie), the decade contains most of my favourite Christmas music - it's a veritable goldmine of festive tunes. 

So today's Advent Calendar post is an hour-long compilation of the best Christmas movie soundtracks from the 1990s. And before you ask, yes, of course it includes Kermit the Frog scatting.
