Talking Heads ‘Speaking in Tongues’ was released on this day in 1983


Talking Heads (David Byrne, Chris Frantz, Jerry Harrison and Tina Weymouth) released their fifth studio album ‘Speaking in Tongues’ on May the 31st 1983. This was the album that broke the band through to the commercial audiences with the hit single “Burning Down The House”, the video for the single was one of the first music videos that I could watch over and over and not get sick of.

The tour that accompanied the album was filmed and released as “Stop Making Sense”, in my opinion, one of the greatest concert films ever made.
Below I’ve added the YouTube video for the complete album…enjoy.
