Where were we? Oh yeah--David Byrne. To continue:
My favorite Talking Heads song? The incredibly depressing one with the uplifting tune.
AMANDA: "Psycho Killer?'
MATTHEW: Okay--the OTHER incredibly depressing one with the uplifting tune.
AMANDA: "Once In A Lifetime?"
MATTHEW: No, it's--
AMANDA: "Burning Down The House?"
MATTHEW: NO! It's THIS incredibly depressing song with the great uplifting tune:
Road to Nowhere
As for my favorite David Byrne solo album? The one that has this cover:
My favorite David Byrne solo song? Track 11.
The first 30 seconds? Not bad. The next 3 minutes? Brilliant. Thanks to the horns. Listen to those horns. Listen to what they do and where they go starting at the 2:10 mark. They're so good they make you think you can dance salsa without a single lesson.
This is happy.
This is great stuff.
This is exactly what you need to hear during a second straight week of gray crappy rainy weather to make you feel, well,--
AMANDA: Glad to be alive?
MATTHEW: Well, I wouldn't go that far.
AMANDA: Try it some time.
Lie To Me
