Oingo Boingo- Danny Elfman
Many of you are probably familiar with Danny Elfman. Some of you probably are more familiar with his work as a composer (theme to the Simpsons, The Batman Movie etc.). I would expect that many of you are also familiar with his time as the lead for the band Oingo Boingo.
Anyhoo, today I stumbled onto a video of a live performance of Oingo Boingo’s song Insanity. The video doesn’t do the song justice, nor does it give you a real sense of just how much fun the shows were, but nonetheless I am going to include it here.
I am also providing a link to the band’s appearance on the Gong Show. At that time they were known as The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo and they definitely had a different feel to them.
If you came of age during the ’80s you might appreciate the Dead Man’s Party video which features Rodney Dangerfield. Fifty points if you can name the movie.
As promised, here is the Insanity video.
