Trivia: Thomas Dolby

  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Andy Partridge played guitar on "She Blinded Me with Science".
  • No Export for You: For some reason, his The Gate To The Minds Eye soundtrack was never actually pressed in the UK, so it is a rare item there. It was available on import occasionally when Virgin Megastore was in operation.
  • One-Hit Wonder: On both sides of the Atlantic for different songs. In the US, his hit was "She Blinded Me With Science." In the UK, it was "Hyperactive!"
  • What Could Have Been: "Hyperactive!" was written for Michael Jackson, but Jackson didn't respond when Dolby sent him the demo.
