David Byrne of Talking Heads has a distinctive voice and style. From hits like "Once In A Lifetime," "And She Was," and more, you can tell it's him immediately.
While Talking Heads isn't together anymore, David Byrne is still quite active, and he's performing not only his songs but some great covers with different arrangements. Among them is this performance for Austin City Limits in Austin, Texas, where a string section is part of a fresh take on Whitney Houston's 1987 classic "I Wanna Dance With Somebody." A little something I just felt like sharing with you because it's always fun hearing hugely popular songs in an almost "alternate universe" form. Check it out and enjoy!
