Musical Interlude: All You Zombies (1985)

Try figuring this one out.

The Hooters burst onto the scene in 1985 with their major label debut, "Nervous Night". The first single, "All You Zombies", is a wee bit difficult to classify. The title implies a horror theme, but it's not even close. The lyrics reference two prominent figures in the Old Testament, Moses & Noah, and the final verse is a query asked of God, as the song goes, "Where have all Your children gone?". What that suggests is a very real problem in some societal circles when it comes to religion.

This is not to say that the band members are Christians or of some other denomination, like Catholics. I cannot say for certain what their views were.
