The Waitresses: 'I Know What Boys Like' (1980)

Released in '80, this song didn't even chart. Then the Akron, Ohio 
(a new-wave center in the 70s-80s w/ Chrissy Hynde, Devo, Pere Ubu, Rubber City Rebels, et al) band's quirky single slowly became an underground hit on college radio and in the bars/clubs, and lo-and-behold two years later
-in 1982- the song finally hit the Hot 100 at #62... I remember hearing this around, thought it was hilarious-
