Talking Heads - Crosseyed And Painless

Happy 60th birthday to the one and only David Byrne. The former frontman of Talking Heads is one of the most adventurous people in popular music, having explored music from all over the world and incorporated it into his own during a 35 year long recording career. That should be pretty evident on the classic "Crosseyed And Painless" from the band's masterpiece Remain In Light (1980). Here's a live version from Wembley in 1982 that is absolutely stunning, the best piece of afro-funk-rock music you can imagine. Perfect in every sense!

Watch and listen
