I've been getting into 'Rock Lobster' lately.  Back in 1980, it went all the way to #1 in Canada (believe me, I am as much surprised about that as you)

One of my favorite bands EVER.  They are awesome live.  Have a great time.

Anyway,
I went with "Other" as "Song for A Future Generation" and "Give Me Back My Man" are my favorites.

In the US, it didn't do well on the charts at all. :-\\


Anyhoo, I can't just pick two on here. In no particular order:

Love Shack
Rock Lobster
Roam
Private Idaho (which I didn't see listed)

I voted for Rock Lobster, Private Idaho and Love Shack but I just remembered Quiche Lorraine.

I've always tended to like the less-popular songs of popular bands.  The B's are one of my all-time favorite groups, and are an amazing live band.  So much fun!  They're touring now to support their new album, Funplex, which is awesome.  I'm going to try to see them in Atlantic City in June.

My favorites are "Party out of Bounds", from their 2nd album, Wild Planet; "Bushfire", from Cosmic Thing; and "Pump", from the new Funplex album.  All the songs on the new album are so sexy!

Without a doubt-Rock Lobster. I remember in high school trying to convince a friend there was such a song.  :D ;D ;D

The other two I voted for was Private Idaho and other: Quiche Lorraine. "Has anyone seen a dog dyed dark green".  :D ;D ;D ;D
