LC Insomniac Edition: The Hooters – All You Zombies
LC Insomniac Edition is a late-night series on The Left Call, intended as a break from political drama.
Being a child of the 80s, there are some songs from that decade which transport me back in time. It doesn’t happen with every 80s song, but All You Zombies by The Hooters creates an atmosphere that conjures another time and place for me.
The Hooters (frequently listed simply as “Hooters”, without the definite article) is an American rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. By combining a mix of rock and roll, reggae, ska and folk music, The Hooters first gained major commercial success in the United States in the mid 1980s due to heavy radio and MTV airplay of several songs including “All You Zombies,” “Day By Day,” “And We Danced” and “Where Do The Children Go.” Their popularity resulted in the band opening the Philadelphia portion of the Live Aid benefit concert in 1985.
