If you own ten 80s compilations, there is a good chance Thomas Dolby appears on at least 75% of them. He’s best known for his charged up electronic funk tunes with offbeat lyrics and memorable music videos. This time, we will be taking a look at his two songs that often end up on those mega-hits collections.
First up, it’s “She Blinded Me With Science”. If you haven’t heard this song before, you were either born after the 1980s or never went to a Showbiz Pizza.
I’ve always preferred the video for “Hyperactive!”, which depicts a bunch of block heads.
Finally, here’s a great way to kick off your week with a smile in a video from Smithsonian Magazine. It’s a live performance of “She Blinded Me With Science” featuring special guest performer Buzz Aldrin! Nothing says lifelong accomplishment like walking on the moon and singing a duet with Thomas Dolby.
