Throwback Thursday – Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)

I must have watched this concert at least a hundred times… The video below is from the Stop Making Sense concert, while the song itself was released on the Talking Heads fifth album “Speaking in Tongues”

According to David Byrne when asked about the song “That’s a love song made up almost completely of non sequiturs, phrases that may have a strong emotional resonance but don’t have any narrative qualities. It’s a real honest kind of love song. I don’t think I’ve ever done a real love song before. Mine always had a sort of reservation, or a twist. I tried to write one that wasn’t corny, that didn’t sound stupid or lame the way many do. I think I succeeded; I was pretty happy with that.”
