Plastic Tubes And Pots And Pans

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.

Written for Hugh’s Views & News Weekend Music Share, the place where everyone can share their favorite music.

  1. Thanks so much for joining in with my Weekend Music share challenge and introducing me to a song I’ve never heard before but which I loved. It has all the ingredients of a classic 1980s song. I’ve never seen the movie, but, from the other comments, it sounds hilarious.
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

      1. I’m not able to run the Weekend Music Share challenge every week (and it’s only been running since late February), but I enjoy sharing the music I enjoy and hearing the choices of others. In fact, I have gone on to purchase some of the music that has been introduced to me.
        Thanks for the link to your challenge. I know of a couple of bloggers who participate every week. I can’t promise to join in, but I will if the inspiration strikes me. 😀
