The B-52's: Funplex

The B-52's lay their goofball-meets-heavenly vocals and wacky lyrics across a bed of driving rock guitar and pulsating electronic beats on this fresh and fun comeback album.

Dance This Mess Around: The B-52's - "Downtown"

Their last song is a bit of a party-ending lark (a cover of Petula Clark's "Downtown"), but cooling down is just the move needed to close out one of the greatest pop albums in history.

Dance This Mess Around: The B-52's - "6060-842"

Dance This Mess Around: The B-52's - "Hero Worship"

There are no vocal overdubs, no excessive instrumentation, and a relatively straightforward lyrical slant. In short, it shouldn't be a B-52's song ... but that's part of the charm as to why it is an essential one.

Dance This Mess Around: The B-52's - "There's a Moon in the Sky (Called the Moon)"

"Moon" isn't a bad song by any means, but when surrounded by so many notable home runs, it feels like the odd man out, a b-side that snuck its way onto the album's actual b-side.

Dance This Mess Around: The B-52's - "Lava"

Nowhere else in their discography have the B-52's made such a blatant song about having sex (which is to say nothing of their use of the word "Herculaneum").
