Is Michael Sells messing with my mind? I’m reading his book, Approaching the Qur’an, and in his discussion of Sura 85, he uses the phrase “water flowing underground,” a phrase I can’t possibly read or hear without immediately hearing the Talking Heads’ song Once in a Lifetime.
So here it is, for your listening/viewing pleasure.
Pointless anecdote: About ten years ago one of the young people at work said something about “that one-hit wonder, the Talking Heads,” and I set him straight. I had three of their albums, and they were awesome!
Man, I wish I could find my master list of all the best songs of the 80’s.
Update: I just realized I still had “Kermit the Frog” listed as a tag. That’s because I originally had a shorter YouTube clip of the same song performed by Kermit and friends. I don’t want to put them both here, but you should have no trouble finding it on YouTube if you’re interested.
