Just got into the Talking Heads in the last year. Have only seen one or two of the songs from this on youtube. Looking forward to getting to see the whole thing for the first time on the big screen.

Here's what convinced me to go see the movie in a theater in 1985.

You mean you didn't remember posting something 14 years ago?!

I remember seeing this first run at an arthouse theater and people were dancing in the aisles.

I later rented a VHS and presented it in the auditorium of my high school for fine arts week. It was very well received.

Anyone that likes Stop Making Sense needs to check out David Byrne live on Sessions at West 54th. I wish they would release this, in some format.

I actually prefer the version of Making Flippy Floppy in this show to the one on Stop Making Sense.

Click the link. The video will play on You tube but canít be embedded on another site for some reason.
I still remember watching this S&E and although I knew very little Talking Heads music, I was sold because they talked about how great the show was and how dynamic David Byrne was. They were right!

My best friend from high school and I have very similar taste in music. We ended up sending this to each other basically at the same time. I sent it and a little later he writes, I was just sending this to you!

It's always nice to have a good dinner-and-a-movie date all setup for you and a good friend in your future.
