I've only heard a few songs here and there, but my favorite one out of all the ones I've heard is "Goodbye, Goodbye". Such a fun, fun song to dance around to. And I have good memories of singing along to "Weird Science" when I was a kid.

What do I like about them? I like how their music is so out there and unique, they're a quirky little group, they throw in all kinds of musical elements, which makes for some very interesting results.

i too have only heard a couple of their songs (i think just weird science and dead man's party) but they sound pretty good. there's one xm station that seems to play them all the time.

so yeah, i second skeek's question.

Man I forgot about "Only a lad"! That's a great song.

I've always thought it a pity Danny went off to become the soundtrack king. Sure he's richer but is he really happier??

So obviously there is more than Stay from 20 years ago? God I feel old all of a sudden. If that is any indicator, I'm curious for recommendations though. I recently (last week) put Stay on an 80s mix I made. Great shit.

Only a Lad is the only one I can think of right now.

Did I tell you I saw them at the Golden Bear 100 years ago?

Every time I hear an Oingo Boingo song now, I think of Jack Skellington from "The Nightmare Before Christmas" .

he is, thats hwy they broke up, they all have different things they are involved in, steve the guitarist is the arrangement for most of danny's scores, and they didnt want to break up as 80 year olds, so they did it when they thought it was right, and all remain great friends and appear on alot of eachother's projects
