    The reason why you think it sounds like Talking Heads is because Byrne ripped him off so much.

    Left field, slightly skewed and sinister pop rock. I always have the feeling that underneath every John Cale recording there is a classic piece of songwriting waiting to get out......he has a brilliant way of making his songs sound 'interesting' and not middle of the road. I love his music :))

    It does sound a little like the Talking Heads, but the effects and feedback are definitely Cale's.

    Love that viola and the creepy sounds in the background. Cale knows how to scare people. :-)
