"Do I smell? I smell home cooking. It's only the river, it's only the river." My mood tonight. 'Cities' Talking Heads

Embarrassingly, I've only recently started to "get" the Talking Heads. It's still taking time and I'm not there yet but I can tell I'm getting close. We all love the hits, as we should, they're great. But non-singles are where the meat is. This is one of the first cuts of meat that tasted delicious, complex after just a few chews. Go ahead, give it a nibble. It's funky, multiple melodies, fantastic lyrics (even an extended section of a verse about El Paso, GDG), and all over that metronome-perfect, nonstop groove. This is a live version from Stop Making Sense (arguably the greatest live video every produced...and it is a "production," not simply a recording of a concert...you'll see what I mean). Want to know where LCD Soundsystem learned 75 percent of what they (he) knows? Look no further than the Heads, friend.

Mostly because I'm out in the country side today.
