What about the time?
You were rollin' over
Fall on your face
You must be having fun
Walk lightly!
Think of a time.
You'd best believe
This thing is real

Put away that gun
This part is simple
Try to recognize
What is in you mind
God help us!
Help us loose our minds
These slippery people
help us understand

What's the matter with him? He's alright!
I see his face - The lord won't mind
Don't play no games -He's alright
Love from the bottom to the top
Turn like a wheel - He's alright
See for yourself -The lord won't mind
We're gonna move - Right now
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel

I remember when
Sittin' in the tub
Pulled out the plug
The water was runnin' out
Cool down
Stop acting crazy
They're gonna leave
And we'll be on our own
Seven times five
They were living creatures
Watch 'em come to life
Right before your eyes
Backsliding!
How do you do?
These slippery people
Gonna see you through

A signature band of the 1980s, the Talking Heads are remembered for the out-of-tune way singer David Byrne wrestled with new wave, art rock, african and latin music, funk, etcetera. Three members of the band are graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design and it shows: the lyrics are poetry, the live shows were slapstick theatre. "This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around." Live album Stop Making Sense is a must-have, the accompanying movie a must-see.
Trivial pursuit question: where did the band Radiohead get its name from? Answer: from the song Radio Head on the Talking Heads album True Stories. The novel American Psycho by Bret Ellis opens with a line from Nothing But Flowers (from the album Naked): "And as things fell apart, nobody paid much attention."
