"Love Shack"'s great and all but obv is way overplayed. "Roam" for the riff alone

xpost i mean, it's doofy and obnoxious, but as far as doofy and obnoxious songs go, it's pretty good.

Yesssssss. First time I heard it. He just stared at the record spinning on the turntable.

doogie had a record player? weird.

Doogie was ten years ahead of the vinyl fetishists. Cool dude.

Love Shack is pretty great, though I liked Roam more even back in 1990....

it was the 80s. lots of people still had turntables.

I don't listen to cover bands or the radio so overexposure is not really an issue for me

do you live in a world where sounds are emitted from TVs movies and stores?

yeah i was abt to say, '89 was only the first year CDs outsold vinyl

yeah, but doogie was kind of ahead of his time, wasn't he? Seems like he'd at least have a discman or something.
what else did the doog have in his record collection do you think?

that "glove slap" song from the Simpsons (to the tune of Love Shack) is funny.

Roam is allright but it doesn't feature Fred, who is hands-down the best feature of any B-52s song

Whats with all the littering? (Shakey Mo Collier), Wednesday, 24 March 2010 22:02 (4 years ago) Permalink

The best feature: the girls' harmonies. The second best: the guitars (Ricky's or Keith's).

nothing wrong with LS, but to my mind it is the fourth best single from this album (tho all four are admittedly brilliant). <3<3<3 the guitar solo in it.

I need to listen to the other album trax some more. it's been too long & I'm really liking the sound of "topaz."

nothing since 2006, Roam is preferred from then on TELLINGLY

That was part of my joke.

that's as may be, but tv's doogie howser listened to college radio & played vinyl, it was very much a character decision. tv's doogie howser could listen on anything he liked & he listened on vinyl TELLINGLY

still love Love Shack but yeah probably a bit overplayed to talk much about. Channel Z seems like such a weird choice for a 1st single given the monster hits that would come next (admittedly I've always hated that song)

LOOK: there is a awesome riff

BEHOLD: verses! so much shorter than the chorus!

WITNESS: dope-ass hand clappin!

GET A LOAD OF: Kate Pierson absolutely is just 100% singing her fucking balls off on that second verse!

saul wright, roger, here is a great kate song, from the (admittedly weaker) follow-up, Good Stuff: Revolution Earth

(could only find the live version sorry foax)

failboat fucking captain (Drugs A. Money), Wednesday, 24 March 2010 22:47 (4 years ago) Permalink

Good Stuff is totally Cosmic Thing Pt. II, down to the producers and mix. Songwriting isn't as good, but still worth owning -- and you can pick up a used copy easily.

there's something about this video...it's nothing spectacular but it captures that vibe that's been kind of pointed out...the whole end-of-the-New-Wave thing, as well as the whole smiling-through-the-tears thing...it's really great

failboat fucking captain (Drugs A. Money), Thursday, 25 March 2010 15:00 (4 years ago) Permalink

as a kid i loved the Cosmic Thing singles but Good Stuff was the first one they put out after I started buying CDs, so for years that was the only B-52s album I had. haven't put it on in a long while but I'd probably still like it.

I'd forgotten there was a Stipe cameo in that video.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 25 March 2010 15:06 (4 years ago) Permalink

I remember thinking that "Tell It Like It T-I-S" was such a profound shark jump that I almost completely disowned their entire back catalog. I'm glad I didn't, as that would have been really silly, but still: not a fan of that song/era.

ALLAH! *rolls on floor* (HI DERE), Thursday, 25 March 2010 15:08 (4 years ago) Permalink

Good Stuff is totally Cosmic Thing Pt. II

MINUS Cindy Wilson, though, which makes as big a difference as Ricky Wilson not being there.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 25 March 2010 15:10 (4 years ago) Permalink

"Is That You Mo-Dean?" is pretty good.

(about Cindy Wilson's absence making Good Stuff seem weaker)

meanwhile, I'm listening to "Love Shack" right now, and as far as overplayed songs go, this is about the cream of the crop...

That video reminds me of the huge adolescent crush I had on Kate P (& also Cindy, but to a slightly lesser extent).
