#100 Song of 2012: Head Above Water by Men Without Hats
Men Without Hats ”Head Above Water”
Yes! Those Men Without Hats. 30 years after “The Safety Dance” and 25 years after penning the new Tide detergent commercial jingle (um, that would be “Pop Goes the World”), the Canadian synth-pop group led by Ivan “Godfather of Monotone” Doroschuk reconvened for their first new studio album in nearly 10 years. The album is called Love in the Age of War, and this song about sticking with your life and “holding your sons and your daughters… just holding on” was its first single. It’s got a great message and you can dance to it (if you want to).
