The B-52s - “Mesopotamia”
I consider this song the ultimate B-52s track, and its slinky rhythms and catchy, inane chorus about the beginnings of civilization are perfect for summertime play. This song along with five others comprise the remaining material of what was intended as a third album. The David Byrne-helmed recording sessions were, ultimately, not successful and the band released the output from their scrapped project as an EP. With a song this amazing, it makes you wonder what other brilliance could have resulted from their Byrne collaboration if they had been willing to see it through without murdering one another.
