One of the finest singers the world has ever seen…
Agreed, very talented vocal skills and they had such groovy tunes to go along with it.

I just dusted off this classic vinyl and have it playing now. Thanks for posting the live video!

Man.. i love playing with both of those bands but it's embarrasses me to admit it kicks my ass sometimes.. My favorite B52's song is give me back my man and by 3 mins my arm is falling off (i can't figure out what's wrong with my technique but it hurts) .. For gogo's there is a video of there 2001 live NYC concert, head over heels, it's just a ton of fun to play. :)
I was Just listening to this, which i listen to bout once a week.. it blows my mind that the band can pull that song off so well in 1 shot live like that. (that's why they are pros and i will never be :) )

B52's: Channel Z, Is That You MoDean, Roam, Rock Lobster, Love Shack and Good Stuff for me and GoGos: Our Lips Are Seals and We Got The Beat.

I know a cover band who do B52s and Bangles and I got to sit in when they did Love Shack and Walk Like An Egyptian - good times.

It doesn't get more 1983/84 than this. You've taken me right back to middle school, Mr. Strange. I don't know whether to thank you or to shun you forever.

Great track. His best, in my opinion.
It’s of its time but an absolute classic…I love the melancholy vibe and haunting female vocals. My favourite Billy Idol track too… (y) :)

Another excellent album. Someone dubbed it "indie yacht rock" and they're not wrong. Although I don't care for the drum sound--it sounds like a drum machine...but it's not. At least there are more fills--although still not enough for my tastes--than their breakthrough album, Lost in the Dream.
