Danny Elfman

Did you know that Danny Elfman was also the frontman for Oingo Boingo?  I had no idea.
 
Until now, I knew Danny Elfman as the composer of many great TV and movie themes, incluging one of the best songs ever, the theme from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.  He also wrote the theme to The Simpsons.
 
It came as a surprise to me to learn that he was also a singer and band leader, and was famous for Oingo Boingo before all the film stuff.  With Oingo Boingo, he recorded Weird Science, theme to the movie of the same name.  It's alive... alive!
