Once In A Lifetime

This is the song that introduced me to David Byrne and the Talking Heads:

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.

Yes ! I have Brian Eno's album, "Another Green World". Very unusual, but cool, music.

He collaborated with TH on their album, "Fear of Music", too...

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?"
