Love Shack was a great song, a huge hit, catchy and fun to sing. and probably the bane of wedding DJs everywhere to this day. The remixes are all terrible. Apparently they did not want to undermine album sales. It worked! Reply Notify me Helpful.

The B-52s’ 1989 smash Love Shack is about a secluded place where lovers can meet to get it on. But that’s merely the most obvious meaning. The title also refers to the venues the B-52s performed at when they were starting out. B-52s singer Kate Pierson told VH1: It was really just kind of in our imagination, the Love Shack. And B-52s singer Fred Schneider said: You open the door and all of a sudden it’s a blast of energy and fun. The track is also a tribute to original B-52s guitarist Ricky Wilson, who died in 1985.
The "Love Shack" is in many ways a state of mind; a place where people of all stripes come for a groovy good time. The band drew inspiration from the club in the movie The Color Purple, and also from a real club outside of Athens, Georgia called the Hawaiian Ha-Le, where they would hang out. This place drew a multifarious crowd of hippies, scenesters, and lots of students from the nearby University of Georgia. Drummer Keith Strickland has also mentioned keg parties out in the country as another inspiration. The B-52s wanted Nile Rodgers to produce the Cosmic Thing album, but he was tied up on another project, so they started working on it with Was, planning to record three songs with him. Those three were completed early, so the band played him their rough demo of "Love Shack. The first attempt at recording the song didn't go well, but the next day they got it on the first take.
