One of so many great songs in the Talking Heads catalogue, taken from their last truly great studio album Little Creatures. The collage animation will appeal to many who frequent this blog - it's super charming and fits the song perfectly.
The video was the first created by Jim Blashfield, who pioneered a collage-animation style with his short film, Suspicious Circumstances. That got the attention of Talking Heads, which wanted a similar motif for their "And She Was" video. The resulting clip earned MTV Video Music Award nominations for Best Group Video and Best Concept Video. Blashfield was commissioned for more videos in this style; his work can be seen in "The Boy in the Bubble" (Paul Simon), "Sowing the Seeds of Love" (Tears For Fears) and "Leave Me Alone" (Michael Jackson). The song is about an acid trip. According to David Byrne, it was written about a girl he knew who used to take LSD in a field next to the Yoo-Hoo drink factory. - via
