Clever tune in a sort of TMBG meets Heywood Banks meets Emo Philips style. The premise is that Einstein creates the concepts behind the bomb because his wife is driving him crazy. Songs like this are dementia for the dementia fan who think they've heard it all.- Stavro Arrgolus
Facts:
  • I wrote this in 1981 after reading an article about Einstein's first wife. Relativity was her idea, it said, and moreover the pair of them were miserable together. It is little known that before Einstein did some thinking about atomic weapons after all, he wrote Roosevelt recommending that the entire German race be wiped out with A-bombs, lest they succeed.

    7 years later I bought some do-it-yourself recording gear and a Korg M1 keyboard and performed it in a bedroom vocals and all. It was meant as a straw-hat and cane dance around Einstein, a madness interlude, concluded with now-mutant straw-hat and cane dancers. Awhile later I changed a few lyrics for accuracy. Would still like to see that production one day, as the arrangement style hasn't aged much for its purpose.

    Who are TMBG, Heywood Banks and Emo Phillips? (Tom Dark)

  • Song Lyrics:
    Einstein in his study he is busy concentrating
    On the angry molecules inside his head;
    Meanwhile in the kitchen his poor wife is going crazy
    He's not eating and he never comes to bed
    And she is miserable
    Miserable!
    Einstein -- Why do you have to BE like that?
    Einstein -- Is it really necessary?

    When we saw you in your study we assumed you were creating
    Some new formula to save us from mankind
    He was busy drawing doodles for disposing of his wife!
    In some strange equation Science can't define

    And how were we to know how this formula could Blow
    Until they used it for a bomb to kill Japan?

    Einstein -- Did you ever once think about THAT?
    Einstein -- Not even for a second?

    Did you mean to make this world a better place,
    Einstein?
    Or did your problems with that woman make you hate the human race, Einstein?

    'cuz all you did was dangerously alter time and space
    A hundred thousand people got the skin blown off their face
    And all I'm trying to do is find myself a hiding place,
    EeeeeeinstEEEINNN!

    (a little dance)

    Did you really mean to fix the human race,
    Einstein?
    Or do we detect an evil smirk upon your sweet old face,
    Einstein?

    Now Godzilla stomps the ground with phony threats about defense
    Three Generations paranoid no legal recompense
    And Science puts a jackboot through the face of common sense,

    Einstein!

    Einstein!

    Einstein!

    Dr. Demento played this one in '89, I think. It got a bunch of requests. It showed up on a lot of other little radio stations, too. I still like it. Fun to listen to. Needs animation and such.
