The Other One: B-52s, "Roam"

"Rock Lobster" remains this band's signature song, and in my mind "Love Shack" looms just as large in their discography, but this song is probably my favourite. As much as I like Fred Schneider's campy vocals on the other hits, I think this song benefits from lacking them. It feels very direct and in-the-middle and kitschy without being "about" it. It's just a fun goddamn pop song.
