Burning Down The House by Talking Heads

Funky, oddball, and making very little sense, this song could come from no other band than New Wave pioneers Talking Heads. Despite being one of my favorite bands, I only listened to the full Speaking in Tongues album from which this hails for the first time this past month. I forget how much I love this song, a testament to the jam-bred experimental approach to songwriting they conceived as a band. Musically, it's not nearly as complex as some works in their catalogue, but I think the free space lets the bare bones breathe and speak for themselves.

Sorry for the infrequency of jams and the listening to of other people's jams as of late. I'm back home from uni which, ironically, has given me less time to dick around on here. Anyways, for now, have a song that has been stuck in my head for no reason for precisely 72 hours as of now!   3

How the old school music videos were so cheesy but so much more awesome. This is a foot tapper.
