My Music Monday
Apparently he thinks he is in the original Hairspray movie, or at least on the Corny Collins Show.
But I figured I could eke out four songs with that. Some might be embarrassing, but you never know.
I would be shocked - SHOCKED, I say - if Erik didn't have a B-52's song in his mix. I do. Actually, when he suggested the theme, I immediately landed on my first song: "Give Me Back My Man", from the B-52's second album, Wild Planet.
While the B's had a 60's vibe to them, the video to "Give Me Back My Man" really personified it in a different way for them. Maybe it's the black & white. Their look here isn't as wild as it was on their first album.
When we saw the band a few years back, I was hoping for - and got- them to play this song. Well, I wanted them to play a lot of songs, but this topped this list and they did not disappoint. It truly made my night.
And yes, when it comes on, the volume goes up and I shake my tail feathers as much as possible, depending on my location.
