We’re revisiting B-52s chart-topping album, Cosmic Thing​​​​​​, released this month in 1989.

'Cosmic Thing'

Athens, Georgia's resident musical oddballs The B-52s had earned a strong alternative rock following by serving up cultural kitsch with loving winks, but the loss of founding guitarist Ricky Wilson in 1985 was a serious blow. The group came back swinging with Cosmic Thing, and the Reprise collection became their most successful yet, soaring into the Billboard Top 10 on its way to quadruple-Platinum sales. Produced by Nile Rodgers and Don Was, the set includes such standout tracks as Channel Z, Deadbeat Club and a pair of Top 10 singles: Roam and irresistible signature song Love Shack. 

Released this month in 1989, Cosmic Thing remains a surefire way to get a party into high gear (and if you don't already have a copy, is well worth your “jukebox money”)!
