In the original release of Weird Science in the '80s, the mall scene where Max (Robert Rusler) and Ian (Robert Downey, Jr.) spot Lisa (Kelly LeBrock) for the first time going up the escalator had Van Halen's "(Oh) Pretty Woman" playing. However, on the video/DVD release, it's replaced by Oingo Boingo's "Weird Science."
Thanks to Will Weaver
Oingo Boingo, who did the title theme 'Weird Science', are actually Danny Elfman's band. Danny Elfman is the distinctive score composer closely associated with Tim Burton.

During the final scene of the original theatrical release, the theme song for Rocky is playing as Lisa tells the gym class to "drop and give me twenty", but in the re-release, it was replaced with Oingo Boingo's 'Weird Science'...
Thanks to 80'sRocked
The home video version plays Oingo Boingo's 'Weird Science' as Lisa ascends the mall escalator while all other versions (theatrical and TV) play 'Pretty Woman'.
Thanks to 80'sRocked
In the last scene at the high-school gym, the theatrical version plays the "Theme From 'Rocky'" while the home-video and TV versions play "Weird Science".
