Throwback Thursday: Talking Heads

I was hanging out at the ocean in St. Lucia about 3 months ago. It was a Thursday morning and I was in the water with some ridiculous drink. Out of nowhere, I start singing. The random song was Psycho Killer. I thought to myself that they would make a great Throwback. Three months later, it is finally happening.

Talking Heads are one of those bands that are just as relevant today as they were thirty years ago. The songs do not get old and they never sound outdated. Even with the absence of new releases in almost 20 years, they still manage to be a staple on radio and my iPod. They are the perfect soundtrack for a good drive and are always a pleasure to listen to. That said, let's throwback. Enjoy!
