Monday Earworm: Oingo Boingo

Oingo Boingo, fronted by indisputable genius Danny Elfman, is one of the most underrated bands I’ve ever loved. Their sound was — and remains — unique, complex, and yet rooted in its time in the way that only the music we adore in our youth will ever feel. This is one of my favorite tracks off their album Dead Man’s Party, which is de rigeur on our commute playlist every October, along with the soundtrack for The Nightmare Before Christmas. I’ve included a clip of a live performance here, but if you like it, look for the narrative music video, too, which is also interesting and incredibly easy to find on YouTube.
