How can anyone's head not bob to this?
I remember dancing to the B52's in high school!  I feel so fortunate to have experienced my youth then with music like this...so much fun! :)

One of their best, IMO, but the top spot probably goes to Rock Lobster. Different strokes, tho.

Just gave Franti a "1." But this band elevates campy to the zenith, fun, fun, fun, even also if they are a club band.

Lighten up, Francis.

I love Shakespeare, but I'm not so exalted that I can't laugh at the damned Flintstones occasionally.

Sometimes musicians do things for a reason.

Everybody in my elevator loves this song...  we think this whole album is fantastic...  we be dancing like happy hippies...  sirdroseph, hope life is grand for you right this minute, friend...  Ricky was so unique and original, and he was an incredible guitar player...  we miss him...  love sex, drugs, and alternative rock 'n roll...  everybody in my elevator loves Radio Paradise for playing such groovy music...

You sound like a tremendous bore.

Really, I was having a problem with how much I liked her. I liked her a lot. And it overwhelmed me and I drove her away rather than deal with it.

So, when I hear the B52's, it reminds me how life is short and you'd best grab every chance that steps in front of you.

Do all 16 dances.

Giving it a 1 - mostly because the high pitched sounds hurt my ears.   But I appreciate the individuality expressed in the music.   OK...increasing to a 2.

In my opinion Love Shack is the worst song ever. Bar-none, hands-down, violent and visceral reaction, Voldermort could use it as a curse, WINNER.

Thank you for playing Planet Claire instead...

Inside of the first 5 seconds of this song, it's a 10.  B-52s are the genuine 'nads.

The year: 1979
I saw the B52's open for the Talking Heads at Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, Texas.
The most outrageously fun concert I have ever been to.
There is no second really.
It was just that damn good!
