Kate Pierson from The B-52s has probably done the unthinkable and wrote a song about a tortoise for her second single ‘Bring Your Arms’.
The song is not exactly interesting lyric wise or production wise…although the song is relaxing to the ears. Almost so relaxing that it becomes a joy to listen to when you just can’t take any more stress from the daily grind.
In saying that, for a second single the song could have been better. It almost feels like a let-down considering iconic B-52s songs such as ‘Rock Lobster’ and ‘Love Shack’.
The most exciting part of the song is when Kate Pierson sings:
“Cause you are running with a light bulb”
Lyrics are still silly but on the other hand the song isn’t that great for hardcore fans of The B-52s.
Bring Your Arms is almost a let-down from Kate Pierson but still a silly relaxing jam. Guitars and Microphones album should have better material if we’re expected to make a purchase.
