I need a pick me up, and this is great song for that. It’s also a great way to start the week. I haven’t listened to this song in years, because I have it on cassette, but I don’t have a tape deck readily available. This track is often attributed to Oingo Boingo, but it’s actually a solo effort by Danny Elfman, who also composed the score for the film the song is from, Summer School. The version used in the opening credits of that movie is slightly different from this one, which comes off of the soundtrack album.
