I love that weird yelling at the end.

Hi, Mari. I see this was a bonus track. Sounds good! So Mr Byrne was into crazy stuff even then. I must give the entire album a listen (I've only ever heard the awesome "Psycho Killer")...
Do you like other Talking Heads stuff? I've listened to '77 a few times, but More Songs About Buildings and Food definitely gets the most plays out of me.

I've heard Remain in Light but the only one of its tracks that really moves me is "Once In A Lifetime"----to say nothing of the video.

Okay, I've got '77 lined up for listening and after that I'll give MSABAF a try. Can't be fairer than that!

I abandoned '77 after four tracks but I'm really into MSABAF (about halfway through now). It certainly benefits from Eno's production and the more dance-based approach. But the songs grab me more as well. On "Artists Only" there's a short drum fill which Byrne sings along with----fantastic! (Here at 1:25.)

Great to see you around again, Alf. :=)

I'm in the middle of Talking Heads' Fear of Music, largely thanks to your better half:

Each successive TH album is more to my liking. I'm now on Remain in Light, the last to be produced by Brian Eno:

My favorite has always been More Songs About Buildings and Food. I played it for undercoverm last year, and she really liked it, too.

Mari was the one who pointed me in that direction. Right now I can't honestly say which of the three Eno-produced albums I like best. Perhaps I like them all. :=)

My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is another fantastic album...

I like the Foxes but it's never got very much further than that.

Heard some interesting stuff a while back by former Fox Father John Misty...

Right now I'm listening to the Stravinsky piano concerto as posted on my other board by Cool Cool Water, to whom many thanks:

I've been listening to a lot of Jimmy Buffett and other assorted summertime / Bob Marley / etc rock/pop/trop country.   It's been a stressful summer, so it's really helping me center.   Even though fall starts tomorrow, we're still going to have summer weather through the weekend, so I'm planning on grilling some burgers, and having some beers with some Buffett playing this Saturday.
