Talking Heads didn’t yet have a greatest hits album back in the days when I got promo copies of their catalog. I remember thinking that I liked only one song on each CD. In each case, my favorite was the obvious choice. The exception is the “True Stories” soundtrack. On that disc I love “Puzzlin’ Evidence” a thousand times more than the hit, “Wild Wild Life.”
I wouldn’t even be thinking about Talking Heads today if it weren’t for an article in the new issue of Metro Pulse. The newspaper profiles four local cover bands, including one that plays only Talking Heads songs. Same As It Ever Was has a gig at Barley’s Taproom on Saturday April 30 at 10:30 p.m. I don’t know if I can make it that night but I’ll go ahead and put it on my Google calendar just in case.
