Tributes to Albert Einstein...80's synth pop?


I love Albert Einstein. I also like 80's synth pop. However, the two should not be mixed together!

I think the following videos speak for themselves.

The first one is "Einstein a go-go" by Landscape.

The next one is "Albert Einstein (Everything Is Relative)" by Silicon Dream. Why is this clown holding a giant pencil?

By the way, Einstein won the Nobel Prize for explaining the photoelectric effect, not for E = mc2.

These are the only two I could find. If you know of any other 80s synthpop songs with big references to Albert Einstein, feel free to point them out.

*edit* CindyAdzuki here. I failed Shawn's request unfortunately as I wasn't able to find more Einstein influenced 80's synth pop, but I did find some other cool Einstein related tunes! Goes to show that Einstein and synthpop really ought not to be mixed...

Listen to:
"Einstein"by Riskey
"Obi Rocked" by Electric Einstein Studio

Thanks Cindy.

You ought to check out some of the other Silicon Dream videos on YouTube. So funny! The singer wears variations of that "Einstein costume" in all of them!

Oh, by the way, that Riskey track is a remix of "Einstein" by the rapper Tech N9ne. It's awesome!

By the way, Silicon Dream only released two albums. Their first album was a concept ablum about time travel and their second album was a "greatest hits."
That in itself is pretty funny.
