She blinded me with science

By Aimee Whitcroft 07/07/2011

I’m in a good, if whimsical, mood today.

And so, and in the hope of spreading it around (like the weird zombie head cold that’s going around, but better), I thought I’d share a song and accompanying music video.

She Blinded Me With Science was released in 1982 by British New Wave musician Thomas Dolby.  It did pretty well in the States, and was #1 for a coupla weeks in Canadia* (huzzah!), but not so much in the UK.

Anyhoo, it’s great fun, and makes me want to dance in a cheesy 80s way.  Which can only be a good thing, right?

UPDATE: And, of course, there are the _ways_ in which she could have blinded me with science.  Mad props and HTs to/at @droneale for this one.  Also, we heart McSweeney’s 🙂


* Yes, I’m aware that’s not how it’s generally spelled 🙂
