Monday Morning Music: “Love Shack” The B-52s

This came into my mind this morning and had to hear it.

From the B-52s 1989 album Cosmic Thing, it was the band’s biggest hit. It was the band’s first song to reach the Billboard Top 40, and it hit the #3 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Internationally, it was #2 in the UK and #1 in Australia for 8 weeks.

The song was apparently inspired by a cabin in Georgia where the band wrote “Rock Lobster” for their first album.

If you look, you can see superstar RuPaul dancing in the video.

The video for the song received an award from MTV as the Best Group Video, and was named the Best Single of 1989 by Rolling Stone.

Dare you to sit still while you listen.
