#467 Talking Heads – Remain in Light

Talking Heads are represented a lot on this list. I do not think they were as popular as they could have been if they had stayed together. Remain in Light is their fourth album and their fourth in the list. It is considered by many as their magnum opus. It is their last album with Brian Eno producing.

I know one song “Once in a Lifetime” on this album. I remember the first time I saw it on MTV. I thought it was the weirdest thing ever. That dancing!

Other songs that I liked were “Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)“, “Houses in Motion“, “Listening Wind“, and “The Overload“.

Overall it is a good album. It is very diverse musical. It has a lot of African beats, which are not my favourite, but it sort of works for the Heads. If it had less of that sound I think I would have loved it. 8.9/10.
