Some top obscure 80s tracks contained within that really help set the pace of the movie. Yahoo had this to say about the soundtrack:
"The music I chose for my first movie pays homage to the epic film score traditions, the symphonic classics, the musical anarchy of cartoon music and 35 years of rock and roll history.
In Young Einstein we created or redesigned music and songs in order to weld story to picture without being obtrusive or detracting from the comedy. Narrative and dialogue in scenes are often replaced with song lyrics or musical parody. A 100 piece symphony orchestra evolves from the "Hendrix style" rock version of Waltzing Matilda, while Beethoven's "5th" fuses with Einstein's theory of "Roll and Rock."
In producing this soundtrack I featured the diversified musical styles from the film including the songs of "Young Einstein's" eight Australian bands, together with dialogue from key scenes.
On behalf of all the composers (dead or alive), the bands, and all the musicians, hope you enjoy it."
