80s Music Video Of The Day: Oingo Boingo - Weird Science

Taken from the soundtrack from the John Hughes film “Weird Science”, this song received heavy airplay on MTV and was a modest hit for Oingo Boing.  Oingo Boingo vocalist Danny Elfman went on to greater fame scoring the soundtracks for movies and TV shows including “The Simpsons”.

Weird, ooo!
Weird Science
Plastic tubes and pots and pans
Bits and pieces and
Magic from the hand
We’re makin’
Things I’ve never seen before
Behind bolted doors
Talent and imagination
Not what teacher said to do
Makin’ dreams come true
Living tissue, warm flesh
Plastic tubes and pots and pans
Bits and pieces (and)
Bits and pieces (and)
my creation–Is it real?
It’s my creation…my creation
It’s my creation
Weird Science
Weird, ooo!
Magic and technology
Voodoo dolls and chants
Electricity We’re makin’
Fantasy and microchips
Shooting from the hip
Something different
We’re makin’
Pictures from a magazine
Diagrams and charts
Mending broken hearts (and makin’)
Something like a recipe
Bits and pieces (and)
Bits and pieces (and)
my creation–Is it real?
It’s my creation–I do not know
No hesitation–No heart of gold
Just flesh and blood–I do not know
I do not know
From my heart and from my hand
Why don’t people understand
My intentions, Ooh, weird science
Magic and technology
Weird Science
Things we never seen before
Weird Science
Not what teacher said to do
Bits and pieces (and)
Bits and pieces (and)
my creation–Is it real?
It’s my creation–I do not know
No hesitation–No heart of gold
Just flesh and blood–I do not know
It’s my creation
It’s my creation…ooo!
my creation
It’s my creation
It’s my creation
From my heart and from my hand
Why don’t people understand
My intentions, ooh, weird science
Weird ooh
weird science ooh
Weird
Bits and pieces
