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!
Yesterday I was walking/inspecting a wide field of steel reinforcment away from the 68 year old project superintendant waiting to hear my verdict. I (also 68) cracked up when I realized he was over there recitig (not sining) the lyrics to great song!
Life is good.
this is messed up! this is 1st material
I don't know why prefer everyone Once in a Lifetime better, I think this is their best song!
This one is definitely one of their catchiest and best songs. - matty925

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
Top 20 songs of all time
Nothing beats this melody.. I do love Once In A Lifetime.. but this song is just unreachable and so unique.
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
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!
Love the different vocal rhythms going on simultaneously
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"
this song is beast it should be up around 1 with psycho killer
My personal favorite Talking Heads song!
My favorite song
La única decente de este grupo mediocre.V 1 Comment
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
Their performance at Rome 1980 is probably their best recording of any song
Their live performance in Italy is nothing short of breathtaking, - Raulrdv
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 - RandomPerson1234
Robert Fripp On the guitar In some parts - Rushfan2112
This should be higher up. - matty925
This song is the pinical of cool - DeadAsian
Second only to Moon Rocks on Speaking in Tongues, mad and brilliant.
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
From humble and mad beginnings, the sing branches out into a superb guitar fade out.
Neat song. Very underrated.
Should be higher in my opinion, once in a lifetime shouldn't be number 1
Totally underrated because it is on a weak album
Love this song, should be higher on this list
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
It's nice to listen to, and the lyrics really make you think - Knucklewood
Way too low. I especially love the "Stop Making Sense" version. - Knucklewood
This should be up there with Once in a Lifetime.
WAY too low
Are you kidding me! This is one of their best songs!
I really think this song should be higher. It's a join in and sing kind of song. Heard it in a movie once and really liked it since.
It gives me such nostalgia. My dad put this song on the video of my brothers' early moments.
Have none of you heard this or something? The quintessential Talking Heads jam
This song is just so fun!
Love the base line!
