The B-52 - "Rock Lobster"


"... Written by vocalist Fred Schneider and guitarist Ricky Wilson, 'Rock Lobster' uses surf-rock as its genre base, with ‘60s-friendly elements like a Farfisa organ brought in to provide the deliberately nostalgic vibe that was the band’s trademark at the time. The tone of track isn’t all bright and chipper: it’s actually a bit down-trodden despite its tempo, but that only serves to give a 'serious' contrast to lines like 'His ear lobe fell in the deep!'”
