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

#HeadJam No5. The song from 'Speaking In Tongues' the version from whats often cited as the greatest live concert video. This pretty much made the the band global. Whilst Eno wasn't on the record it continued on the world beat/dance sound with a lot of additional players. Lighter in overall tone than the previous two albums but still worlds apart from anything else at the time.   4

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.
