Save room in the Love Shack for me!
Eighties fans love everything in jumbo size: big hair, big wine coolers and big, BIG legends from their decade to headline the summer tour season.
Tonight's True Colors Tour at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall brings two mighty contenders to town: the B-52s and Cyndi Lauper, who gets the nod as the headliner. But really, should she? Time pop music guru (and Ben Stiller lookalike until he gets a haircut) Sean Daly and I have agreed to wage blog battle over the question...
Who's bigger: The B-52s or Cyndi Lauper. (Naturally, I picked the winning side.)
TOP 3 REASONS THE B-52s SHOULD HEADLINE THE SHOW:
3. THE SEX: Booty-bots! Eroti-bots! Making love in zero gravity! Who could ask for anything more? The B-52s’ funky new "Funplex" is vastly superior — and sexier — than Cyndi’s clunky new "Bring Ya to the Brink."
2. THE CLASSICS: If you crave a "Party Out of Bounds," only our friends from Athens, Ga., can accommodate with "Love Shack," "Planet Claire" and "Rock Lobster."
1. THE PURE MEDICINAL POWER: This just in . . . B-52s music cures arthritis, joint discomfort, back pain and everything thing else caused by sitting through a long summer concert!
Go to Sean's Pop Life blog to show pity for his misguided music tastes, and then feel free to come back here and do the "Rock Lobster" with me. Here comes a bikini whale!
