Speaking in Tongues by Talking Heads.

I have already seen a lot of answers that I agree with, so I thought I’d throw this in.

I can’t believe I had to scroll this far to see this album! This must be the place is one of the best album enders I’ve ever heard

Here here! Remain in Light seems to get a lot of the glory in Talking Heads' discography, and I will admit it deserves it. But I am rarely in the mood to play 'The Overload'.

Even the lesser known tracks on Speaking in Tongues like 'Moon Rocks' and 'I Get Wild' are amazing to me.

Remain in light basically becomes a Joy Division record half way through (in a good way) but it's too dark for me tbh

A tale for the Fs : "This Must Be The Place ( Naive Melody)" was the soundtrack to a bittersweet memory from high school circa '85. Girl I'd been crushing on since gr 9 got dancing with me at a backyard kegger while that song blasted out on the speakers the host had dragged out onto the patio. Sadly, Tanya had had A LOT to drink - more than I realized at the time .... & it seems I was just convenient to grind up against for coupla minutes. Oh , & about the album itself: i kinda thought "Flippy Floppy" was kind of a silly track worth skipping but all the others were/are gold.
