The most popular Talking Heads album Speaking In Tongues features the singles "Burning Down The House", "Girlfriend Is Better" and "This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody)".
Non-Western sounds and funky rhythms had infected Talking Heads' music prior to this 1983 pop breakthrough, but Speaking in Tongues is where the beat truly gels. Speaking in Tongues is singularly immediate and direct. In each song, one concept, one saucy bass-and-piano walking line, one ricocheting keyboard line, one heavily shouted pyromaniac refrain, repeats into an insistent foundation, so emphatic it begins to burrow into a trancelike state befitting the album name. Choruses are evolutions of verses, of ideas that have repeated enough to feel lived-in. Tina Weymouth's funk bass, the unsung star of the album, is never far from the foreground.
