Seriously. You hear the 60's music and it's instantly recognisable and anyone can sing along to it. The Burton/Elfman music is instantly recognisable, haunting, and has now stuck with me for 25 years. The Nolan music? I heard it less than 30 seconds ago, and not only can I not remember what it sounded like, you could play it to me again and I probably wouldn't be able to pick it out from a bunch of other modern music scores.
