Funny story. I knew Danny Elfman from his film compositions and his singing voice as Jack Skellington. So the first time I heard “Weird Science,” I was like, “Oh my god! That’s Jack!” The first time I heard him sing with the band was on VH1 Classics, where Oingo Boingo was labeled a one hit wonder. Are you kidding me? They are not a one hit wonder. So “Weird Science” is a cool song, but their best is “Dead Man’s Party.” I could listen to that anytime. I love Danny’s voice. He sounds so macabre. But I also like their songs such as “Little Girls,” “Only a Lad,” “Gratitude,” and of course, “Just Another Day.” There’s something cool about that band. I only wish their songs hit the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Was Oingo Boingo you’re first concert? My first was Fleetwood Mac. I know they’re old, but they were great. Lindsey Buckingham is the most underrated guitarist of all time. Rolling Stone Magazine is a joke. They put him at 100 for the list of 100 Greatest Guitar Players? 100? How about 5?

The concert I recently saw was Bon Jovi. They performed all their best songs, it was amazing. I do wish I was watching from the front, but Jon Bon Jovi did come to our section to perform in our view. He’s quite the showman.

Did you see anyone recently in concert?

Buckingham is fantastic! I love Fleetwood Mac as well (you can see my top 10 up a few posts). My dad loved the old pre-Buckingham/Nicks era of the group. He couldn't stand Stevie Nicks... heh heh

Anyway... Oingo Boingo was not my first show, it was Aerosmith and I think that was in towards the end of the year in 1990? I was pretty young. But back to Boingo... I think "Just Another Day" is probably their best song but how can you not love Dead Man's Party?

Aw man. I’m jealous. I want to see Aerosmith! Too bad. Steven Tyler’s voice is going away. The only thing he can do is screech. Maybe that’s why he’s losing his voice. So you saw them during the “Pump” album. What’s your favorite song of theirs from the 80’s. I like “Angel,” but “Rag Doll” and “Janie’s Got a Gun” is cool, too.

Too bad your dad doesn’t like Stevie Nicks. Oh well. Perhaps he doesn’t like Miley Cyrus either.

So yeah, I agree. Those two Oingo Boingo songs you mentioned are my top 2 favorites.

Which reminds me: Do you think that any of these songs that we’ve mentioned could be on a TMNT series if someone decided to play real bands?

Talking

Yeah my Dad instilled a love of music in me... he has this massive LP collection (somewhere around 2,000-2500 records if i had to ballpark it!) But my Dad was the Aerosmith fan which is why I went to that show. I vaguely remember it to be honest. I think "What it Takes" is probably my favourite tune from that era.

I lost Dad about 5 years back so... I don't know if he ever heard of Miley Cyrus. He was still listening to Robert Palmer, Eric Clapton, and Tom Petty. I think he'd "given up" on the music of today

Boingo... great stuff. I also like "Not My Slave"... such a great song. I have a memory of that Boingo show but really just at the start... Elfman was wearing a t-shirt and came out banging on these big bongos... crazy stage props and what not. I remember being somewhat perturbed to be frank. Dad was a fan, which is why I went to that show with him. Man... thank God for Pops, or I'd have never gone to any shows

Hard to say what songs would fit with TMNT nowadays... I like the idea that Elfman could do some tunes for a newer movie/series. But hey, I'm still one of those holding out hope that one day we'll get another live-action Turtles flick like the 1st one

Yep. That’s from “Pump”. That’s a great song, too. I wasn’t into their material that much after that, but I loved their later hit “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.”

I’m sorry about your dad. Mine is into that music, but he needs to be exposed right now to a few new talents. He likes Lady Gaga, but I hope he’ll get into Adele.

Oh yeah. You gotta love Elfman. Still, why didn’t they perform “Weird Science?” They perform everything else, except that one post-Dead Man’s Party album. Why? Did they hate or get tired of the song?

Hey. I’m excited for this new film in production . . . even though Michael Bay is involved. Still, I may enjoy this one because it’s not as boring as Transformers was for me. I can take robots only if the turtles are fighting them, or if Schwarzenegger comes in to save the day. What I’m really looking forward to is the Nick cartoon. So far, I’m loving the direction it’s going in. Now to end things: I’m hoping we get a tint of Aerosmith or Björk in a new series someday. A man can dream, can't he?

That's straight up shocking, mate!

"We Close Our Eyes" and "Stay"... two more Boingo tunes I thought of that are great, and they did do those live. That was the first time I'd ever heard those songs Not really sure why they didnt perform Weird Science... maybe they wrote off all the performing rights to it to the film company for the movie..?

"Stay" is a good song. Still, if I had to pick, I love "We Close Our Eyes."

But besides Oingo Boingo, there were others that didn't make the Top 40. Do you listen to Tori Amos?
