Great Talking Heads song about the existential nightmare that is domesticity. I'm no David Byrne, but I try!

David this is absolutely fantastic!
One of the greatest bands of all time...
They're one of the bands that totally changed what I thought of music or what it could be...

Also one of the greatest music videos of all time-- with David's sweaty face and herky jerky head butts!

You really are a star my friend! This is excellence!

But you have one member of the band missing here... Chris, Tina and David were the core-- but Jerry Harrison really grounded the band with his eerie guys and rhythm guitars... smiley

i love the talking heads...and this is one of my favourite songs from the 80s...(or maybe even of all-time!)

i like the low-end rumbling bass in this version...and the twinkle-y bells in the upper-register!

(i could've done with more guitar, but that's a personal preference...)

this is a great song! and this cover definitely holds its own!

Impresionante! Estas seguro que tu apellido real no es Byrne?!
Indudablemente vivimos la misma musica durante la adolescencia!
Gracias por esta, David. Simplemente genial.

As MissRedd points out, the "twinkle-y bells" are brill! And of course the huge beat and bass, too. Totally great inflections in your voice.

No, it's not the same! smiley

art, yeah, that's the ironic thing about doing a song you totally do not agree with. But, as the kids say, "dude, it's got a cool beat!"
