A song to start your week : The B52s – Rock Lobster

As we’re in Brighton this week, I thought I’d choose a song to start your week which reminds me of that city, where my wife and I lived for almost four years (my wife lived there a decade in total). One of our favourite places to go out in Brighton was Mrs. Fitzherberts, which happened to be managed by a friend of ours. On birthdays, new year eves and just regular Friday nights we would congregate in the upstairs room whilst one friend or another would spin some records.

Rock Lobster was one song which almost always got a spin. Suprisingly I’d never heard it before moving to Brighton, but it swiftly became one of my favourite songs to dance to. Funny, joyous and catchy as hell, I can’t think of a better song for a Friday night, or to lift your mood on a Monday morning. With the addest bonus that it reminds me of some of my happiest nights.

    Great memories associated with this song, but not so good about Brighton, where my car got towed away…………..a long story.
