How do!

What does everyone think of the talking heads?

Personally, I never really moved beyond Psycho killer, although I was once played some of a Jerry Harrison solo album and thought that it was OK.

I love that song Nothing But Flowers. Other than that, I haven't heard anything else.

I know them........I know some songs, but it´s not something for every day..........it´s ok

My father listened to TomTom Club some days ago.


I like the Tom Tom club, particularly "wordy rappinghood". It's like the Clash's Mag 7 or Blondie's Rapture, but not crap.

Le Elephant seems to get sampled a lot.

I listen to them a lot. "Found a Job" is my favorite song of theirs. They've a lot of songs that are fun and easy to cover, too.

I only like Psycho Killer. None of the other songs I've heard by them has even remotely interested me.

I don't mind them, but my dad does have some funny stories about getting wasted with them.

I like them, and I have been recently infuriated by the disappearance of my Stop Making Sense dvd which is great but difficult to watch when I don't know where it is.

God, I love them. Remain in Light is one of the very very few perfect albums ever made, imo.

God, they're one of my favorite bands eva. the Psycho Killer crowd don't know ****, I'm dead seriously. Remain in Light is really perfection. There's so many different layers to each song, I hear something new every time I listen. I have to say it's my number one favorite album out of any albums. Fear of Music is also a favorite. the jams are so tight on the album, I can't help but dance around.
And with all that said, Speaking in Tongues and More Songs About Buildings and Food are also great and **** Talking Heads:77, it's overrated and not even interesting!

i love these guys, (Nothing But) Flowers is probably my favorite song from them

if you like them, check out Vampire Weekend, not too similair, but his voice reminds me of David Byrne

I love the Talking Heads, they're probably my favorite new wave band, if you call them that.

And Vampire Weekend really suck.

Yeah, I love the talking heads. I'm almost tempted to move this to alt & indie, but my anger at how much the hipsters have hijacked the heads and similar bands is prevening me from doing so.
