Esta canción fue el primer single de B-52’s en 1978. Surfer y a go-go, sicodélica y absurda, yo la encuentro maestra. Fíjense en la cantidad de momentos distintos que tiene, es casi épica! El baile de Fred Schneider y los gritos de animales fantásticos (dogfish, catfish, sea robin…) de Kate Pierson son lo máximo. Rock Lobster una de mis canciones favoritas ever.

We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a rock lobster

We were at the beach
Everybody had matching towels
Somebody went under a dock
And there they saw a rock
It wasn’t a rock
It was a rock lobster

Motion in the ocean
His air hose broke
Lots of trouble
Lots of bubble
He was in a jam
S’in a giant clam

Down, down

Underneath the waves
Mermaids wavin’
Wavin’ to mermen
Wavin’ sea fans
Sea horses sailin’
Dolphins wailin’

Red snappers snappin’
Clam shells clappin’
Muscles flexin’
Flippers flippin’

Down, down

Let’s rock!

Boy’s in bikinis
Girls in surfboards
Everybody’s rockin’
Everybody’s fruggin’

Twistin’ ’round the fire
Havin’ fun
Bakin’ potatoes
Bakin’ in the sun

Put on your noseguard
Put on the lifeguard
Pass the tanning butter

Here comes a stingray
There goes a manta-ray
In walked a jelly fish
There goes a dogfish
Chased by a catfish
In flew a sea robin
Watch out for that piranha
There goes a narwhale
