Songs To Love: TALKING HEADS : ROAD TO NOWHERE

























Songs To Love: TALKING HEADS : ROAD TO NOWHERE 

 I love this song. From the gospel choir-ish intro to the galloping drum pattern this song is as original as it gets but then that is the Talking Heads for you. David Byrne has one of the most distinctive voices and artistic visions in music and this song about futility and death feels happy with zydeco type rhythms and flavors. It is a dark joke within a really cool song.

- Robb Donker


 From Wiki: "Road to Nowhere" is a rock song written by David Byrne for the 1985 Talking Heads album Little Creatures. It also appeared on Best of Talking Heads, Sand in the Vaseline: Popular Favorites, the Once in a Lifetime box set and the Brick box set. The song was released as a single in 1985 and reached number 25 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks and number 6 in the British, German and South African [1] singles charts. It also made number 8 on the Dutch Top 40.
