And there I was, having lunch on my day off, sitting in a little outdoor pavilion in Indonesia, just looking at the water thinking about a society that was alien to me, puzzled at the Indonesian girls wanting a picture with me, and me with my headphones on and the refrain starts . . .

You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world

. . . I just had to smile.

Oh yes...I have this buried somewhere still on CD!

Excellent song, co-written with Brian Eno.

The Talking Heads always surrounded themselves with lots of great musicians...Tony Levin, Robert Fripp, Adrien Belew, just to name a few. I saw them live a couple of times. Once when Tina was 8 mos. pregnant. She totally jammed on that bass, under her big belly. :-). Talking Heads, one of my Top 10 bands of all-time.

Excellent.

"Well...How did I get here?"
