Talking Heads - This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)

Speaking In Tongues (1983)

I’m sure I’ve posted this song before because it’s been a favourite of mine for a long time, but I had to post it again after watching the film ‘This must be the place’ starring Sean Penn, which has some great scenes that centre around the song, and which reinvigorated my love for it. The lyrics are just beautiful…

"You got light in your eyes and you’re standing here beside me, I love the passing of time. Never for money, always for love".

This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) - Talking Heads.

Stop Making Sense is one of the best concert films you’ll ever see. It captures the heady eclecticism of the 80’s NYC scene, mashing neurotic new wave with electro, funk and hip-hop all in one classic performance. Yes, the one where David Byrne wears That Big Suit.

This song is one of my highlights, even though it never appeared on the original vinyl soundtrack. It’s a beguiling ride that I’ll never tire of. It’s also been covered by Arcade Fire and MGMT, two of the best bands of recent years. What good taste they have!
