Best Talking Heads Songs
The Top Ten
You may find yourself on a top 10 Talking Heads website, and you may think yourself a little confused with the results, and you may ask yourself, "Why is 'Once In A Lifetime' not number one? " and you may tell yourself, "Well, maybe I should vote for it! "
This is messed up why is "Psycho Killer" #1!
I don't know why, but there is something about this song that I really like!

Come on its awesome its one of those songs I force myself to not learn the lyrics to because its fun screaming out incomprehensible to
Isn't as groovy as some of the others, but has a genuinely heartfelt quality that they'd never achieved up till this point.
No other like it. Purely originalV 1 Comment

Got some wild, wild life! Just an incredibly happy song tahts fun to sing along to!V 1 Comment
If you don't love the version on stop making sense, you're just a horrible person and I don't want to have anything to do with you. - tommydeath
Just the best song, builds and builds, then finishes in a great crescendo, can't get sick of listening to it. David Byrnes voice, Jerry Harrison on percussion, Steve Scales and all the backup, Stop Making Sense... Just the best of Talking Heads!
Frigging cool as hell guitar interplay
I love the music, and the lyrics are fantastic as well! - Knucklewood
Their best opening track from their best album- sheer nonsensical beats and riffs coming together to form something amazing, all exmplified in this song.
I like the singing near the end. "There's a city in my mind.. " that was my favourite part of any talking heads songs
Impossible! This song should be at least in the top 3. Any self respecting Talking Heads fan should know that.
This is their best song! Should at least be in the Top 3! This is crazy good!
Too many great songs to pick. Today I pick this one!
Robert Fripp On the guitar In some parts - Rushfan2112
This should be higher up. - matty925V 1 Comment
Second only to Moon Rocks on Speaking in Tongues, mad and brilliant.
Should be higher in my opinion, once in a lifetime shouldn't be number 1
Totally underrated because it is on a weak album
From humble and mad beginnings, the sing branches out into a superb guitar fade out.
