Someone just put the soundtrack to Stop Making Sense on the stereo in the office. God I love that movie. I guess I watched it at just the right time – it must have been one of Channel 4′s late night showings when I was 14 or 15. Perfect viewing for a small town kid in awe of the power of rock and roll for whom the only live gig available was the annual Spinners Christmas Special.
Psycho Killer, the opening track.

I love youtube; particularly as a music discovery service. I don’t think I’ve talked about this enough here so here’s the first in (hopefully) a more concerted effort to post music videos to this blog.
This is the track I was looking for when I first discovered exactly how good youtube is for music. It wasn’t there at the time, it was the other things I found that made me realise. Thankfully someone has posted it since and for your delectation here is one of the highlights of Talking Heads career done by David Byrne plus small orchestra on Later a few years ago. This must be the place (naïve melody).
