Shh! They might hear you!

Am I the only one who, upon hearing that the US Government has been engaging in surreptitious listening in on our conversations, immediately started singing: "They're tapping phone lines, you know that that ain't allowed"?

The Talking Heads, ahead of their time.

I've been hearing a lot of Talking Heads on my favorite spot on the radio dial of late. No doubt related to their newly released boxed set, but still. I'd forgotten how much I missed them.

I inflict them on my kids, Jennifer, all the time. I doubt I'm doing them any favors!

I LOVE the talking heads. Love, love, love them.

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...

Same as it ever was... same as it ever was.

Now, I'm very pretty famiar with Talking Heads, but I don't recognize that line. Wassit frum?

And now I can't leave without first singing this:

There is a party
Everyone is there
Everyone will leave at exactly the same time

It's hard to imagine that nothing at all
could be so exciting!
Could be this much fun!

Heaveb is a place
where nothing, nothing ever happens..."
