Friday Flashback "Love Shack"

Thanks to YouTUBE, I'm going to post a music video every Friday... just for kicks.

Here's a video performance of The B52's - "Love Shack" which is a major party song (and great for crusing down the highway).

I got me a car, it's as big as a whale and we're headed on down to the love shack.
I got me a Chrysler, it seats about twenty, so hurry up and bring your jukebox money!

The love shack is a little old place where, we can get together.
Love shack baby. (A Love Shack bay-hay-bee).

About The B-52's from Wikipedia:
The B-52's is a rock band from Athens, Georgia; the first of many from the college town that has become one of the most important centers in alternative rock.The name comes from the bouffant wigs that are a part of the band's distinctive look, worn by singers Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson. Along with Wilson and Pierson, drummer Keith Strickland, guitarist Ricky Wilson (Cindy's older brother) and vocalist Fred Schneider formed the band after a drunken night at a Chinese restaurant.

The song "Love Shack" was inspired by a real-life cabin in Athens GA that was home to singer Kate Pierson in the early days of the B-52's. It was destroyed by fire in late 2004.

(Note: since the video takes a while to load based on your bandwidth, just hit play, then pause... while the video buffer gets full.)
