LA NUEVA MUSICA CLASICA I

Editado en 2004, con grabaciones que van desde 1977 hasta 1988. The Best of Talking Heads es un gran disco recopilatorio de exitos de esta genial banda, grandes letras y ritmos, pioneros del Art Rock. Sin duda quienes gustan de la buena musica que contiene temas reales con los que nos enfrentamos cada dia como el trabajo, la vida y las relaciones con otras personas, claro algunas canciones con un sentido del humor bastante divertido o hasta ironico. Un disco que no debe faltar en ninguna coleccion es este, aqui hay unos comentarios de otras personas del ambiente de la musica respecto al disco aqui descrito.

"While it´s almost impossible for me to pick a favorite Talking Heads song, I have to say that this is probably my favorite one... It´s certainly the darkest song they ever recorded"
Moby. Cancion: Memories Can´t Wait

"Found A Job is the perfect Talking Heads song. Great bass and guitar and some truly inspirational lyrics. Clearly music made by thinking people for thinking people, but you can still feel it"
Matt Safer (bassist/vocal) of The Raputre. Cancion: Found A Job

"The next day I bought the record, I remember thinking, Why isn´t is his beautiful life?. I get it now. It´s not mine either"
El-P Cancion: Once In A Lifetime

A continuacion una parte de Once In A Lifetime:

You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
You may find yourself in another part of the world
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
You may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
You may ask yourself; Well...How did I get here?
You may ask yourself
How do I work this?
You may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
You may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
You may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!
