Thursday’s Theme Music

I once read an interview with one of the pop members behind this hit. In the interview, he said (paraphrasing) the song was a hit because it had an odd novelty beat.

I’d always wondered why and how the song managed to become so popular and ubiquitous. That odd beat might explain it.

Here’s Devo with “Whip It” from 1980.
