Quora Answer : What makes you think Talking Heads is a great band? Which 10 tracks would you choose to support your contention?

Jan 27, 2020

I don't need 10 tracks.

Just watch this

This is, to me, one of the greatest pieces of rock concert footage I've ever found on YouTube.

I don't even like rock concert footage much ... I'm not massively bothered about live music. I tend to like composed and recorded and mixed, with studio effects etc.

Nevertheless, this completely blows my mind. How fun and powerful and exciting the performance is here. I want to hear and see this, more than I want to hear the same track on the album. Which is very rare for me.

Ultimately what makes Talking Heads a great band is what makes any band great. A completely unique, individual voice and identity, that says something different, with enjoyable music (good tunes, great beat, innovative sound)
