1000 SONGS - DAY 41 : SONG # 69

SONG #69: A Song that You Can Dance to

One of the most danceable films ever made, one of the best concert movies ever, directed by Jonathan Demme, catching a great show done by fine musicians and David Byrne, one of the movies that I have watched more than 3 times in a real cinema (and I own the original vinyl of the soundtrack and the DVD) is STOP MAKING SENSE by TALKING HEADS. Which track should I choose? Maybe Crosseyed and Painless from "Remain in Light" (produced by Brian Eno) will be the best choice, for not being featured on the original record and for what it says about facts (every scholar should have that in mind) :
Facts are simple and facts are straight
Facts are lazy and facts are late
Facts all come with points of view
Facts don't do what I want them to
Facts just twist the truth around
Facts are living turned inside out
Facts are getting the best of them
Facts are nothing on the face of things
Facts don't stain the furniture
Facts go out and slam the door
Facts are written all over your face
Facts continue to change their shape

Plus a pretty good live version with nice pictures from another concert:
