That Talking Heads song is about touring. It took me a long time to realize that. It’s still not just about touring for me, which I guess comes from Romantic childhood delusions not being properly corrected at an early age. But it’s worked out for me.
Anyway, I’ve been keeping track of song videos that have struck me as right for this moment in time for a year now. The first four:
20-JUN-2017: Who am I to disagree?
Oh, to be seventeen forever. Oh, to be thirty-four forever.
24-SEP-2018: You think they’re dumb, you think they’re so funny.
Just wait until they got you running to those…
20-MAY-2018: Johnnie wants to think of a joke.
Johnnie’s an American. Johnnie’s an American.
01-JUL-2018: If you want to teach ’em how to fight, you gotta treat ’em all alike.
I hate tear gas. Don’t you?
More to come!
