Try to Believe

Legbamel Not-Pop

For those of you who were never Oingo Boingo fans and think that Danny Elfman is just some Tim Burton toady, I offer Try to Believe as proof that the band had more to offer than a wicked horn section, political commentary, and catchy lyrics. That’s not to say that I don’t love all of those things about the Boingo bunch, but this song shows the group's breadth as well as their depth. It’s a feel-good tune and a sort of love song, a reminder to believe in yourself and your dreams. For those of you who are thinking, “What a cheesy-sounding song for Oingo Boingo to perform,” have a listen. The fire is still there.
Buy Dark at the End of the Tunnel (because you’ll get Skin, Run Away, Flesh N’ Blood, and Is This to go with Try to Believe, plus you can't buy mp3s of the album from Amazon).
