30 Days of Songs Dean Wareham Covered # 11 Talking Heads

In his memoir Black Postcards, Dean Wareham identifies Talking Heads as an early formative influence:

'In their button-down shirts and straightlaced haircuts became my favourite band. They weren't trying to be rock stars, punks or the second coming of the Rolling Stones. David Byrne affected a shy, bug-eyed persona. His style of guitar playing was scratchy and angular - a far cry from the popular guitar heroes with their rock poses.'

Here's a song Wareham covered with Luna. The first song from the band's second album, More Songs About Buildings & Food.
