My last post mentioned David Byrne and the Talking Heads, so today I had to include one of their best songs. In the George W. Bush era “Life During Wartime” has a renewed meaning, and the paranoiacal lyrics make some sort of sense. The Talking Heads are always fun to listen to because David Byrne’s lyrics are fascinating, witty, and dreamy. This video is taken from the amazing concert film Stop Making Sense, directed by Jonathan Demme (Caged Heat, Silence Of The Lambs, Philadelphia, Neil Young:Heart Of Gold). Love the choreography.
