The days race by, but the weeks seem so long... Just how does that work? My general mood has been good but my energy level has been low - so I sought out a feel good song for this week's top song selection. I had to dig deep but I think I found a great one. The Talking Heads are easily one of the most enigmatic bands of the last twenty years. With a look as unique as their trademark sound, they have left a lasting impression on popular music and help drag elements of their style into the mainstream.
The Talking Heads
formed at Rhode Island's School of Design (Providence) 1974
I chose to share with you today an alternate version of the song, "Burning Down the House," which showcases the band's brilliance. This rare version of the track is a bit longer and certainly more instrumental - and it feels just a bit better. In some ways, it's a grander version of the original! *But you can decide for yourself!
