Talking Heads – Take Me to the River (Live)

Talking Heads were one of the coolest bands in popular music history. One of the few acts who perfected white-boy funk in a very unique way (Steely Dan being the only other I can think of at the moment,) their cover of Al Green’s “Take Me to the River” is stellar, and this live version from their movie Stop Making Sense is possibly better than their recorded version (Al Green’s is better than both, however.) You can really see that everyone is having a ball performing this, and I’ve always considered that the most important thing when shooting video or concert footage of a band. Stop Making Sense is one of the best concert movies ever made, and you should watch it.
