We never forget our first love. They leave an indelible mark on our hearts. One of my fondest middle school romance memories takes me back to Las Cruces, NM, where I met my first young love, a charmingly adorable Latino boy.
One night, we cuddled under a pile of blankets and watched Edward Scissorhands, a romantic dark fantasy film directed by bizarre genius, Tim Burton. It was the first time I recall enjoying a love story (perhaps the make-out session helped). I adored this extraordinarily odd tale, and fell in love with the whimsical score Elfman wove around it. That moment forever cemented my fondness for all things Elfman and Burton.
I fell pretty hard for the boy, too. But, we moved far away shortly after. To his credit, he wrote me love letters for well over a year. I have them still…
In the spirit of Danny Elfman, one of my favorite and most distinctive film composers, I’m hosting a delightfully strange writing adventure in collaboration with Colossal Trailer Music, where YOU, dear readers, will have the chance to be immortalized as a quirky character in our bizarre, but heartwarming, love story.
