    Burnin down the House,… cuz my darkest, deepest, sweetest bruise ever came from unintentionally slam-dancing my way into my floor speaker whilst authentically being carried away by that killer song.

    We played, my siblings and I, ‘This Must Be The Place’ as we scattered the ashes of our parents this year (they died within 10 days of each other) on the beach in Kennebunkport, Maine. We all cried and laughed and hugged each other. My Dad said he wanted that song played when we scattered said ashes…. Mom went along with the plan. We all (siblings) want it played at our ashes-scatterings too.

  5. Margaret says:

    “This Must Be The Place”. …. you’ve got a face with a view…. one of the most romantic lines ever written
    and something we all aspire to be, to someone

  6. Margaret says:

    ‘Take Me to the River” … saw them at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley… opened by ‘The B 52′s… the best show I EVER saw

  7. Margaret says:

    ‘Artist Only’

    “This Must Be The Place” is probably my all time favorite song ever ever ever… “Take Me to the River” is also pretty juicy… but I love everything by Talking Heads! It’s hard to pick just one song! I grew up listening to them on road trips with my family. David Byrne played at the Warfield and it was the first live concert I ever went to, at age 12.

    ‘Psycho Killer’
    Qu’est-ce que c’est?

  12. PMK says:

    “Take Me To The River” is my favorite. My dad used to play it endlessly when I was a baby; it was the one of the only things that would soothe me to sleep.
