Buried away at the back of Cosmic Thing is that rare B-52’s song that’s neither a surf rock riff nor a crazy party jam. ‘Topaz’ is a super loose, almost psychedelic beach song. Cindy and Kate are the trippy, yet soothing lead vocals, while Fred occasionally chips in “faster than the speed of love”.
