The B-52's -- Dirty Back Road

The B-52's -- Dirty Back Road
The B-52's are best known for their campy manic tracks, but I love their chilled out tracks more. Exhibit A: probably the most laid back track on their 2nd LP, Wild Planet, and something I wish they'd done more of. Easy to nod along to, and I think I'd heard it half a dozen times before I paid any attention to the lyrics and found out it's not about driving.

The song ends with crickets, which keeps making me expect "Sun King" next.
