Lots of comment in 2002, nothing till 2012, then one a year??  The best of B52's was a staple in our car CD for years.  The kids loved it! We all loved it, though it did get a bit tedious after play 100 or so.  Still, a great driving album.

Yep

Still a 9 - verging on a 10 every time I hear it 
Love this song.  But wasn't it first issued on Cosmic Thing?
They were simply the Best! {#Clap}

I hadn't heard this song for ages and then just today, I hear it on 94.3fm (Orange County's Cool)driving in to work and then I hear it on RP at work! :) Which is OK, cuz I like it! But there are better B-52's songs. Patti M. 8^)
no offense intended ... just a musical opinion ... but this is HORRIBLE ... meaningless ... pop ... CRAP !*!*! :roll:
I feel like this song was in a movie, only I\'m not sure which one...I want it to be from Dumb and Dumber, but it\'s not on the soundtrack...
It was post 1979. I was watching \"one trick pony\", an old Paul Simon Movie that chronicles a musician lonely life on the road. They show up in a bowling bar for another lack luster gig and there playing on the stage, for just a brief shot, is an early version of the b-52. I miss bieng young. Dot

A good "catchy" tune is the Holy Grail of musicians. The music world is littered with one hit wonders that went "crazy" trying for a 2nd one. This in mind is what makes a band like the Beatles with a (seeming couple hundred?) hits almost unbelievable.
I\'ve always thought of them as a more joyful, simpler (maybe superficial) version of the Talking Heads. Like them both, but can listen more often to the Heads. 6060-842 would be another nice B-52\'s song to play on RP.

I suppose this is true and I respect your opinion, I just find this song to be really annoying, but to each their own, right?

Don\'t ask me why, I\'m not sure that I could tell you, but I just love this song. A simple pleasure, an infrequent indulgence. Thanks for the fun, Bill!
