Many of you will remember David Byrne as the lead singer of Talking Heads. The Heads wrote a good part of the soundtrack to my youth, along with Oingo Boingo, The Cure, U2, Pink Floyd, and a smattering of others. I never saw the Heads live (that I remember) but did see Byrne years later at the State Theater in Portland, Maine (where I’ve also seen Tori Amos, Paula Cole, and George Carlin; no, silly, not together!). I found it powerful and interesting, but his solo music never touched me quite the way his Heads stuff did.
But these days, he’s making buildings sing.
