They said the idea was what if Alice Cooper tried to imitate Randy Newman.

I always think of Jerry Seinfeld at the "say something once, why say it again?" part.

What!? Butler, you don't know what you're talking about! The Heads wrote and performed this song as far back as '74 when they were known as the Artistics. The Killer Whales! Psssshhhh!!

I'm a victim of the parody effect. I like this song, but I always sing along to it using the words to The Fools' "Psycho Chicken".

David Byrne sounds very believable singing these lyrics. Classic song.

This is the first time I've ever liked a live version better than an album version, but he just sounds a little too sane here. Compare with: http://www.y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = l 5 z F s y 9 V I d M

i wish i had Rock Band 2 so I could play this and 'uncontrolla b l e urge' by Devo!!! ugh but I only have the first Rock Band...lol

David Byrne is a genius. Who else would write lyrics like this? And Tina Weymouth is a great bassist. The bass line in this song is fantastic. And this song is fun on Rock Band. I like being David Byrne and singing in French.
