i almost forgot how great this song was. witty creative lyrics, jaunty bassline, great guitars (now I know why).
Just perfection.

great cover. my only criticism is that it's too good - it adds nothing to the original. one might think it was the talking heads if you weren't as familiar with the finer details of david byrne's voice.
