The music of Talking Heads (1 of 4)
Album: Talking Heads: 77 (1977)
Thoughts: Psycho Killer is the key track, but there are other good tracks too, which I hadn’t heard before. I have to admit I prefer the inventive sound production and lyrics, more than David Byrne’s vocal.
Favorite tracks: Psycho Killer, Uh-Oh Love Comes to Town, No Compassion, Don't Worry About the Government
“Here come a riddle, here come a clue,
if you were really smart, you'd know what to do”
Album: More Songs About Buildings and Food (1978)
Thoughts: Lots of catchy riffs, but no big hits.
Favorite tracks: Found a Job, Artists Only, Take Me to the River (Al Green cover), The Big Country, Thank You for Sending Me an Angel
"I look out the window,
(And I) I call that education.
(And I) See all my friends standing out there
(And I) I call that education (sophistication)"
“Add the will to the strength, and it equals conviction”
The band released eight studio albums between 1977-1988. Any thoughts on the music? Have you listened to the Talking Heads? Or are you new to the band as I am?
