    Dreeeaaaam Operator.

      The group was introduced to me one summer while decorating and listening to this band certainly had the rooms painted. There are three remarkable and unique tracks that I often have the pleasure to indulge in, and will discuss on this site. Here are some lyrics...

    Alan Bennett Or David Byrne?

    I'm not sure if this is about Alan Bennett's Talking Heads series on television or the band Talking Heads. Both were very good in their respective genres (great word), Road To Nowhere, a particular highlight.

    I raised my daughter on my own

    and tried to expose her to the important things in life. She just got married. She chose This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) for our father-daughter dance. I guess I did a good job.

    Really unique and original.

    There is no one else like them, my three favourite albums by them are: Talking Heads:77, Fear Of Music and Remain In Light.
