Kim about Weird Science
How did you get involved in the soundtrack to ‘Weird Science’?
The film company that made ‘Weird Science’ is ‘Universal’ who are owned by the MCA group of companies. The film was directed by John Hughes, who also directed ‘The breakfast club’, which was a hugely successful film. ‘The Breakfast Club’ had a soundtrack LP which sold very well and spawned ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ which was a No. 1 in the USA. The LP was also due to be released on MCA Records (my record company), so it was a natural progression. (1)
