Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Downtown”

The B-52’s – Jackson Browne

Finishing the theme with my least favorite tracks from my favorite albums…

Here at the end, it becomes simple. I love the song “Downtown” as performed by Petula Clark, I love the interpretation by the B-52’s on their first album, but it really doesn’t stand up to their original material like “Planet Claire”, “Rock Lobster”, “Dance This Mess Around”, “Lava”, “There’s a Moon” and “52 Girls”. Hope you’ve enjoyed it!

This song doesn’t fit into this week’s theme, because Lawyers in Love is not anywhere near being one of my favorite albums, no matter how much I like the title tune. But “Downtown” is decidedly a minor song on the album. Jackson’s singing is even a little lazy.
