Music Monday: DEVO – Uncontrollable Urge


This is my favorite DEVO song.  I really had to pick DEVO for #musicmonday this week, because I AM GOING TO SEE THEM ON FRIDAY.  I haven’t been this excited about going to a show in a really long time.  I’ve never seen them before, and everything I hear about this tour is so, so positive.  (I actually am so excited about this show that I’ve already been trying to figure out what I’m going to wear.  I don’t want to go “in costume”, but it seems to me that if you go see DEVO you get to dress up a little extra awesome.) 

Tod is a big DEVO fan and got me into them after we met.  One of my favorite nights ever in San Diego, my friend Leslie and I drunkenly flirted with the DJ in order to talk him into playing two DEVO songs back to back, which we then danced our butts off to.  (To which we then danced our butts off.)

Jonah likes DEVO, too.  Of course he knows Mark Mothersbaugh from Yo Gabba Gabba!, and DEVO played a song for the Super Music Friends Show.  The other day I put them in in the car and he said, “Mama, this is good music.”
