The Fine Art of Surfacing
1979

A manic hybrid of influences as disparate as punk, doo-wop, and Gilbert & Sullivan -- blended together with just the right amount of pop sheen, The Fine Art of Surfacing remains the musical high-water mark of Live Aid guru Bob Geldof. Best known for the hit "I Don't Like Mondays" (about a teenage girl who shoots up her school), the album is chock-full of songs that are dark, funny, and endlessly hummable.
