Hughes Tunes: Weird Science

Hughes Tunes: Weird Science

We continue our deep dive into the music behind John Hughe's iconic 80s comedies with the next stop our journey through Michael Anthony Hall's puberty: Weird Science. Everybody remembers the title track to this shenanigans-a-plenty 1985 comedy (it is Oingo Boingo after all). But what about the other tracks featured in the film? We listen to a couple of tracks off the film in this week's installment of Hughe's Tunes.
