Sorry. Bored. Drunk. Listening to some Oingo Boingo.

Danny Elfman fucking RULES!

Nominated for multiple oscars, some of the best theme songs and original movie scores. Not to mention...the Boingo.

Aside from the annoying Foundry-level-of-annoyance bug across the screen, a kickass (and fucked up) video. The song rules, and it's slightly different from the album version, but still sounds great.

Even the live version (easy to find on youtube) is pretty fucked up looking.

Yes, The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo fucking rule! I discovered them around '82 and have been hooked ever since. My favorite record/disc is still Nothing to Fear. Danny and the rest of the boys never really got the credit they deserved. That is a reunion concert I would love to see.

Unfortunately, Danny has said he'll never get on stage again.

Stupid hearing loss.

how do you not know Oingo Boingo... if for nothing other than Weird Sceience.

Anyway, I like most of his scores, and thinks after hearing Nightmare Beofre Christmas and Corpse Bride, I think he could do well writing a few more musicals, maybe even a stage / live action film one.

The Movie Channel had The Forbidden Zone on the other night. A true fucking classic. The Mystic Knights of The Oingo Boingo and Herve Fucking Villechaize. A must see for any Danny Elfman fan.
