Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)

Here’s the official vid for the Talking Heads 1983 superjam “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)”. David Byrne, the lead singer who wrote the lyrics to this jam, says of it:

“It’s a love song made up almost completely of non sequiturs, phrases that may have a strong emotional resonance but don’t have any narrative qualities. It’s a real honest kind of love song. I don’t think I’ve ever done a real love song before. Mine always had a sort of reservation, or a twist. I tried to write one that wasn’t corny, that didn’t sound stupid or lame the way many do. I think I succeeded; I was pretty happy with that.”

Swoon.
