So I have been on last.fm/audioscrobbler for almost a year and a half, and through that time, my charts have moved around, outside of Phish remaining my favorite arist by far. I'd also like to say I'm listening to Phaddy Boom Baddy right now. But that's quite off topic. Anyway, there isn't a great reason for this journal entry. Basically, where I intended to go in my first sentence was something along the lines of...
I didn't really start giving the Talking Heads a good listen until September 2005. Outside of Once in a Lifetime (which also happened to be the 200th track I listened to by the band), I didn't really know what they sung. I was somewhat familiar with Psycho Killer and Crosseyed and Painless because of Phish's many Crosseyed and Painless covers. [Phaddy Boom Baddy's over and I'm now listening to Shangri-La.]
Anyways, I really got into the Talking Heads this school year, and they're an awesome band. Yeah they're weird, but so is all the music ever created, ever. Lately, my favorite tracks of theirs have been Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On), Don't Worry About the Government, Take Me to the River, and This Must Be The Place. I have yet to come across any David Byrne (lead singer with a solo career), but I'm interested in listening to some. Hopefully, this journal will pop-up on your page and you'll randomly decide to read it, and maybe you will give the Talking Heads a listen if you don't really know them. I love last.fm because it is very key for me discovering new (and old) music that I usually like, and might not have normally heard about or bothered to listen to. So for whatever reason you're on this website, I encourage you to find new music through recomendations (and sometimes journals like this one...)

and on that note, it's 4 am and I'm going to bed, an action that often calls for Sleep

    Three words: Life During Wartime Also, And She Was is pretty poppy, but with pretty lyrics all the same.

    If you haven't already, I'd recommend picking up either <i>Speaking In Tongues</i> or <i>Stop Making Sense</i>. Both are great albums. Oh, and if you have Windows Media Player 8, David Byrne's Like Humans Do comes bundled with it.

    I know many jam bands cover the Heads. Lots of jamband fans seem to like This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody). I know that's one of my faves, along with Lifetime Piling Up.

    I've said this before, and I stand by it: This Must Be the Place is the greatest love song ever written ever in the history of rock music.

    i've been listening to talking heads since i was in the womb (my mum loved them!), so it's only natural that i adore them. and i do. 'don't wory about the government' is a song i recently re-discovered after not hearing it for over a decade. it's [i]probably[/i] my favourite by them; it's really hard to choose one. here are some other songs you should look into: -(nothing but) flowers (the band guster covers this well) -lifetime piling up -life during wartime -found a job -blind -and she was -mr. jones -road to nowhere -wild wildlife also, you mentioned 'once in a lifetime' and that's wonderful. it's the song i use to get people into talking heads.

    Making Flippy Floppy on Stop Making Sense is also very sensational.
