    Agree with saintsluvver, below. Getting this along with Charade by The Skids. Great tracks but not every 5 minutes.

    I do love this but Last seems to be playing it every 5 minutes at the moment. Perhaps it's trying to tell me something...

    30 years old next year and this tune still sounds as fresh as it ever did. Genius.

    No-one does this kind of clipped white funk like David Byrne. Fantastic stuff, and a genuinely disturbing 'vocal'
