The Top Ten

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
Probably the best of their songs to listen to with a group. - Knucklewood
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 original
Nothing beats this melody.. I do love Once In A Lifetime.. but this song is just unreachable and so unique.V 1 Comment
this song is beast it should be up around 1 with psycho killer
Got some wild, wild life! Just an incredibly happy song tahts fun to sing along to!
La única decente de este grupo mediocre.
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.
Too many great songs to pick. Today I pick this one!
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!
Best song also reached no1 an the video was just as good
I have a massive talking head
Robert Fripp On the guitar In some parts - Rushfan2112
This should be higher up. - matty925
This song is the pinical of cool - DeadAsian
I love the transitioning in this song, it almost makes it feel like he's arguing with himself about whether he should be more caring or not - Knucklewood
Second only to Moon Rocks on Speaking in Tongues, mad and brilliant.
Neat song. Very underrated.
From humble and mad beginnings, the sing branches out into a superb guitar fade out.
Should be higher in my opinion, once in a lifetime shouldn't be number 1
Totally underrated because it is on a weak album
