Awesome Talking Heads

Eminem as a Talking Heads Song

Eminem as a Talking Heads Song

About the only thing Marshall Mathers and David Byrne have in common is that they both had hit songs. But what if the Talking Heads had written a song about Eminem’s career and his rhyming abilities? It might have sounded something like this track by Nick Lutsko. So put your orange door hinge in storage and hit play now.

Once in a Lifetime without Music

Once in a Lifetime without Music

Same as it ever was… or maybe not. The Talking Heads track Once in a Lifetime is a true classic. Ross Hudson wanted to know what the vocals from the 1980 track might sound like without the music and posted this clip of David Byrne’s isolated voice, which gives the song a whole new texture.

Laser Time dug up this juicy nugget from an old episode of Muppets Tonight, in which Kermit donned a giant suit and proceeded to sing (er talk) a cover of Talking Heads’ classic Once in a Lifetime. You must stick around for Statler and Waldorf at the end. Same as it ever was.

Postmodern Jukebox is joined by vocalist Sara Niemietz, as they turn in a swing jazz cover of one of our all-time favorite Talking Heads’ tracks. Nothing will ever be better than the original, but we appreciate their unique arrangement.
