I'd say one of my top 5 favorite B-52's songs. Except the other 4 are all on the first album.

Living in one's own private Idaho became a common phrase with my friends after hearing this song. It was direct hommage to a great song and a great band. Still dancing all these years later.

Song is not about River Phoenix. Song came out in 1980, movie (which took its title from the song), came out in 1991. Phoenix died in 1993.
