The Top Ten

Once in a Lifetime Once in a Lifetime Cover Art

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!

Great lyrics, awesome chorus, unique production, and the best track the band ever produced.

I don't know why, but there is something about this song that I really like!

Psycho Killer Psycho Killer Cover Art

this is messed up! this is 1st material

This one is definitely one of their catchiest and best songs.

I don't know why prefer everyone Once in a Lifetime better, I think this is their best song!

The Pumped up Kicks of the nineteen seventies

Burning Down the House Burning Down the House Cover Art

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.

This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody) This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody) Cover Art

This TH song one of my absolute favorites! A go to when I need to step out of my own head.

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

Top 20 songs of all time

Life During Wartime Life During Wartime Cover Art

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.

What a song. Studio version is great, live version is great. It's in rarified air in its ability to capture a moment in time.

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!

The Great Curve The Great Curve Cover Art

Love the different vocal rhythms going on simultaneously

One of the best TH song, great "The Great Curve"

Frigging cool as hell guitar interplay

Sounds like a whole orchestra. Everything fits together so well. You always hear something for the first time when you listen to it again. Comparable to Tff's "Shout"

Born Under Punches Born Under Punches Cover Art

Their performance at Rome 1980 is probably their best recording of any song

Their live performance in Italy is nothing short of breathtaking,

This song is wonderful,i'm surpised by this low rating

This is the grooviest and best thing they've ever done. should be higher

Take Me to the River Take Me to the River Cover Art

This should be higher up.

The best song..

This song is the pinical of cool

Great song

The Contenders

Thank You for Sending Me An Angel Thank You for Sending Me An Angel Cover Art

Their best opening track from their best album- sheer nonsensical beats and riffs coming together to form something amazing, all exmplified in this song.

Road to Nowhere Road to Nowhere Cover Art

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

Houses in Motion Houses in Motion Cover Art

Any song off this album is amazing

WAY too low

Crosseyed and Painless Crosseyed and Painless Cover Art

Too many great songs to pick. Today I pick this one!

Stay Up Late Stay Up Late Cover Art

This song is just so fun!

Cities Cities Cover Art

Love the base line!

Pretty sick.

No Compassion No Compassion Cover Art

I think this one's the best on the album, even better than "Psycho killer". The transition through different sounds makes it just like a mini progressive rock song though.

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

I Zimbra I Zimbra Cover Art

Robert Fripp On the guitar In some parts

Artists Only Artists Only Cover Art

From humble and mad beginnings, the sing branches out into a superb guitar fade out.

Making Flippy Floppy Making Flippy Floppy Cover Art

Second only to Moon Rocks on Speaking in Tongues, mad and brilliant.

(Nothing But) Flowers (Nothing But) Flowers Cover Art

Should be higher in my opinion, once in a lifetime shouldn't be number 1

Totally underrated because it is on a weak album

Girlfriend is Better Girlfriend is Better Cover Art

Way too low. I especially love the "Stop Making Sense" version.

Sax and Violins Sax and Violins Cover Art

Underrated gem

Slippery People Slippery People Cover Art

Love this song, should be higher on this list

One of the best songs of all time

Though the studio version may not be outstanding, the live version in 'Stop Making Sense' is just irresistible from the bottom to the top! #thelordwontmind

City of Dreams City of Dreams Cover Art

It's nice to listen to, and the lyrics really make you think
