Composer Danny Elfman's melodies have provided the backdrop to 16 movies, including Beetlejuice (1988), Dick Tracy (1990), and this month's blockbuster, Batman Returns. Writing movie scores takes a lot more dicipline, 39-year-old Elfman said, than his other career:writing and singing for the pop band Oingo Boingo. "It's as different as writing a humongous novel," he added, "or just sitting on a hilltop writing poems."
