I did it. I filled the gaping whole in my life and replaced my B52s album.
I have listened to that album several thousand times over the years and I could never figure out what that second song was all about. It’s gratifying to find out that it was utter nonsense all along. It’s just a bunch of random girls names. The chorus is just “names. names. names.” or something.
I am still not smart enough to embed videos. When I tried, it completely trashed my website. WordPress doesn’t seem to like the object tag. You’ll have to go all the way to YouTube to watch the B52s on SNL.
The B52s were the Salvador Dalis of post-punk. Ever wonder what it was that fell in the deep to be mistaken for a rock lobster? It was an ear lobe.
Speaking of Salvador Dali… How many surrealists does it take to replace a light bulb? Eight. One to hold the giraffe and seven to fill the bathtub with brightly coloured machine tools.
