Song of the Day: Insanity
Today’s song is Insanity by Oingo Boingo.
Yeah. Now we’re getting to the madcap nature of Danny Elfman’s music.
This song captures the essence of chaos.
Really dig into the lyrics and you’ll find something interesting about the culture of the early 90’s.
A lot of it still holds true, which is quite disturbing, but that’s culture.
Time to let the world know. Welcome madness, …say hello.
Yeah, this one is a bit dark. This was their last album (and an interesting one at that).
It has an edge to it.
The fact that Elfman worked on this concurrently with The Nightmare Before Christmas holds an interesting dichotomy.
