7)Talking Heads ‘Stop Making Sense’ 1984

I’d bought their earlier album ‘Remain in Light’ in 1980 as was in love with the song ‘Once in a Lifetime’
David Byrnes performance in the video is amazing.the oversized suit and epileptic dance moves.They then released the film and album Stop Making Sense which is one of the best live performance recordings of a band sonically and visually.Tina Weymouth on bass is supercool.
‘ Psycho Killer’ and ‘ Heaven’ are great tracks too.
