Very strange song...interesting lyrics about imagining a look we want and then slowly morphing into that appearance by pure will.  Last line is hard to hear.  Had to listen a few times to catch it.  Interestingly, I just heard a speaker last night explain how muscle density can increase through visualization alone.  So, maybe Byrne is not that far off on his thinking with this song.

So F'n brilliant! The music, the lyrics - SO ahead of their time.  Mind boggling this is rated a 6.6 on RP?!

Reminds me a little of “The Gift” by Velvet Underground. Great lyrics!

With a little help from Brian Eno and Jon Hassell making their own crazy sounds.  ; )

These are very interesting and unique lyrics...the thought that we could change our physical appearance by our thoughts and imagination is thought provoking.  I think that may actually happen in real life to some extent, i.e., how we "see" ourselves reflects in how we look to others and thus if we change how we see ourselves, that may change how others see us as well.

Yeah but still: Sean is grizzled. Too many suntans and/or cigarettes. It wouldn't surprise me if he's had a drinking problem too. 

Haven't seen his recent movies but he's one of my favorite actors.

I always expect Bryne to break out into Mr Rogers' 'Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood'
I heard he was Rogers' son, anyone else know?

Talking Heads/ David Byrne are underrated methinks.  This sounds great, really contemporary. 

Did anyone see that film this year "This Must Be the Place" - with Sean Penn playing a badly aging gothic rockstar (a cross between Ozzy Ozborne, and Robert Smith).  David Byrne was in that film, playing a very nicely aging rockstar, very 'together'. The film itself was slow, you had to be in the right mood, but Byrne and Penn bounced off each other nicely.

Loved it then.  Get it now.  (Many people change their faces - accidentally, to match their temperament.   By the time they realize what they've done, it's too late.) 

Crazy good.

It's Brian eno and Byrnes song, and could have equally featured on the excellent "My Life in the bush of ghosts" LP recorded at same time.  A wonderful record btw.

loved this track the first time I heard it when I was a youth.  Was grape picking in France.  Met a bunch of German hippies travelling.  They got me stoned and gave me headphones with this track playing.  Takea me back there every time I hear it.   That's music for you. 
 
I LOVE that about music
