I have never participated in Hugh’s Views & News Weekend Music Share before, but it seems easy enough to do, so I am going for it. Hugh indicated that he likes science fiction and that he is big fan of anything from the 1980s, so I am adding the Oingo Boingo song ‘Weird Science’ to this fun challenge today. The song reached #45 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and #21 on the US Dance Club Charts. ‘Weird Science’ was written by Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman and it came out on their fifth album Dead Man’s Party. Danny Elfman was lead singer of the group and he went on to write theme music for many popular movies and TV shows, including The Simpsons, Beetlejuice, Batman and Edward Scissorhands.
The movie Weird Science was released on August 2, 1985 and in it two teen misfits Gary and Wyatt design their ideal woman on a computer, and a freak electrical accident brings this lovely, superhuman Lisa to life. Lisa is real funny and she transforms Wyatt’s jerky older brother Chet, into a giant, talking turd.
