Talking Heads – Wild Wild Life (12″)

wildytalkFrom 1986 and a great, but weird 12″ mix from Talking Heads. Off their 7th album, “True Stories” and from Eric E.T. Thorngren. Mad drums, stop/start but keeping with the general fun and “live” feel of the track.

B-side is the Country and Western sounding ” People Like Us” containing the vocals of  John Goodman (of Roseanne fame) straight from the David Byrne movie , True Stories. The album version of the A-side is the extra track.


The video is amazing, with lots of 80’s music parodies in. Won an MTV award as well!
