Kate Pierson and The B’52s

It’s a shame that Kate Pierson’s involved in this mini-scandal right now (some stupid ex-boyfriend posted a picture of her online… not going to link to it). The B-52s occupy a very special place in my heart.

In 1983, I went to Great America with friends for a birthday party. They had a video jukebox there. I popped in my money and played Thomas Dolby “Hyperactive” and The B’52s “Theme for a Future Generation.”

To me, The B-52s always stood for summer. Fun, ridiculous, light-hearted, offbeat, strange, hot summer. Even when they were tackling a political issue, like in “Juicy Jungle,” they maintained their element of fun.

Here’s “Theme for a Future Generation” (sorry about the intro, but it was the best reproduction I could find), and here’s hoping that no damage comes from the photo.

    “Don’t worry. Don’t worry” As in the Yoko Ono song the B-52s covered. Take a look at the photo on this site. Looks like there is no scandal.
