The B-52s – Give Me Back My Man (1980)

After a bit of a break, it’s time to resume the blog and what better way to do it than by returning to the relentless genre of which I am so fond.

Killer driving bass and drums with a wonderful twangy guitar riding on top. Cindy Wilson adds a shouty vocal that proves to be the missing link between 1960s bubblegum pop and the post punk new wave …..

A perfect pop single. How good were things in 1980?

All topped off by a wonderful video.

    Take the singing out and I would swear this music was performed by DEVO!
