Listen to the Frankenweenie soundtrack song "Strange Love" by Karen O

Even if you’re not a huge fan of indie rockers the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, you’d have to be crazy not to acknowledge front woman Karen O has some pipes on her. Tim Burton seems to recognize it, too, as evidenced in “Strange Love” her song for the FRANKENWEENIE soundtrack.

Giving the track a spin, I gotta say that it’s an addictive, sweet natured little number that sums up Tim Burton’s themes very well. It’s not going to make you forget “Sally’s Song” or “Making Christmas” or anything, but "Strange Love" has a certain 1950s calypso sensibility that recalls Burt Bacharach, Harry Belafonte, and Henry Mancini’s work nicely.

Of course, that sensibility is utilized to make a song about loving your God-defying, abomination of an undead dog, but I feel like Ms. O pulls it together nicely. Give the track a listen (below) to hear for yourself, check out the track listing to the soundtrack (FRANKENWEENIE UNLEASHED, also below) and if you like what you’re hearing, pre-order the disc through our website (here). It’s win-win-win, guys.
