Create a Karaoke Instrumental Track
I want an instrumental track for the Oogie Boogie's Song from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I have a piano sheet music that I arranged and mixed together for what I want the track to sound like. The song is based off of Cab Calloway and I want the song to sound like it's having fun for a live-performance scenario, but not straying too far from the original source material.
The original song has lots of string, piano, and woodwinds carrying the melody, bu...t for this arrangement, I'd want to have a more "brassy" presence and instead of an orchestra setting with a full set of string instruments, it would be cut down to an acoustic guitar and a standup bass. I'd like hear your thoughts on what additional musical interpretations I should go for!
Here's some links for inspiration and what Oogie Boogie's Song is based from:
Minnie the Moocher (Cab Calloway)
Oogie Boogie's Song (Danny Elfman - Full Version)
Villain's Medley (Johnathon Freeman | Disney Sessions)

Overall, the song should sound spooky and fun for the Halloween season!
