Come on, mammy

245. the B-52's - "Whammy Kiss" (Warner Bros., 1983)

Like many B-52's songs, this one is perfect in every way. The drum machines pound out a constant love beat that accompanies the lyrics, which do the not at all simple trick of making desperation attractive. Who would turn down anyone singing this song "a refuelin'?" No one who likes fun, certainly. I hope your New Year's Eve (and mine) is 1/100th as wonderful as this song. We all need our refuelin' for the new year. Here's to champagne toasts and as many whammy kisses as you desire.
