Have at it.
None of the above:
Rush - Natural Science
Randy Newman- Political Science
I vote for Devin Townsend's version of that tune.
But anyway, I prefer Boingo.
But Thomas is cool too. I really like his version of I Scare Myself .
Thomas Dolby uniquely captured the essence of the techno-new-wave-dance sound of the 80's. He is a true auteur. Danny Elfman and Oingo were a fun band with some good chops, no doubt. But I wonder if they were just a stepping stone for him to the Rugrats sountracks
I cant believe this comparison you obviously have no idea who tomas dolby is as a musician.
Get your self on KAZAAR download, Dolby's "May the cube be with you" listen to it ,come an back and Ill tell you who is playing on it and then we can discuss weather oingo measures up
Mark Mothersbaugh (sp) of Devo is doing the Rugrats soundtracks. Elfman went on to do many movie soundtracks.
My brain seems to think it remembers seeing Danny Elfman in the credits for The Simpsons. Yes/no?
Dolby has made some pretty big contributions to music technology, though I can only think of the fact that he developed the technology that newer cell-phones use to get polyphonic sound.
Yes. He wrote the theme.
He's also done music for Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow and appeared as himself (with Oingo Boingo) in Back to School!
I think Thomas Dolby invented Dolby Surround Sound.
While I am biased towards the funkateer, I didnt know who did the soundtracks for bertons movies (he did them all right? sounds like the same guy) I have to admit he's amazing those movies soundtracks are GREAT!
Ill still take the funkateer though
Dolby's 'the Flat Earth' has some great bass on it.
Very nice fretless work. Gots to respect the Dolby, and his bassists.
I don't know the name of the guy who did invent it, but Thomas Dolby named himself after that guy.
"That guy" was Ray Dolby.
I stand corrected. I was thinking Simpsons. I always get those guys confused.
Elfman also did the soundtrack to Spy Kids ...
I think Thomas Dolby is a fantastic composer, I like his soundtrack to the movie Gothic and The Mind's Eye.. The Flat Earth is a really cool album too. I really dig the song "Screen Kiss". Matthew Seligman was the bass player on that album.., TD's other stuff like Science I really don't care for.
I never cared for Boingo's stuff. Hey, what about Wall Of Voodoo?...they fit into this category. I think they first started out doing music for movies. What's Stan Ridgeway doing these days?
Thomas Dolby without a doubt!
She blinded me with science sounded so different when it first came out, still does.
Man, that song brings back memeories.
I can smell the chemicals.
Where's the Gary Numan option... the pleasure principal was a fantastic album.
