The B-52’s – Roam (12″)

b5290sA forgotten classic from The B-52’s from 1989 and off their album “Cosmic Thing.” Given remixes by Ben Grosse and Nile Rogers (along with Andres Levin and Tom Durack) this has the advantage of not having the annoying vocals ofΒ  Fred Schneider interrupting proceedings, (sorry B-52 fans but he is grating!) but an amazing duet from Kate and Cindy.

The mixes help add to the song with added bits of technology, the longer, Ben Grosse does go on a bit.



A1 Roam (Radio Mix) 4:13
A2 Roam (12″ Remix) 8:17
B Roam (Extended Mix) 5:25
