Thanks to Dave WilsonIn 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 WeaverOingo 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.
Thanks to Dan RenfrowDuring 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'...
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'. 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". The new re-releases of the DVD restores the music that was cut out for the VHS versions of this movie
