More Info:

While John Hughes made a directorial splash at the helm of earnest, coming of age stories like "Sixteen Candles" and "The Breakfast Club", the legendary writer and director showed he could play fast and loose with reality with 1985's "Weird Science". To match the irreverent and modern edge of the film, the score is packed with new wave and post-punk gems from artists like Oingo Boingo, Killing Joke and Kim Wilde, providing the film with a bit of bite. "Weird Science" is a more surreal outing than most of Hughes' films, a trait the film's soundtrack reinforces beautifully with a collection of songs by artists who weren't afraid to do something new and different. The film's theme song, "Weird Science," was performed by Oingo Boingo and written by the band's frontman Danny Elfman.
