Blast From The Past: Talking Heads - Once In A Lifetime

Great video from the movie Stop Making Sense. I miss these guys since the band officially broke up in 1991. Lead vocalist David Byrne, drummer Chris Franz, bassist Tina Weymouth, and keyboardist Jerry Harrison were masters of nervous energy and subdued minimalism in the punk rock genre that was at its peak in the 1980's. The core members of the group met at an northeastern college of art in the early seventies and moved to the Big Apple to work on their own brand of music that blended melodic harmonies, pop guitar and world beat to become one of the super groups of that era.
