Long term readers may recall that, apart from They Might be Giants, my other main pop music interest has been David Byrne and Talking Heads.
Tonight, I was looking at a Youtube of Once in a Lifetime, as I was going to show it my son. But he was too busy hunting dinosaurs on the iPad, so he didn’t pay much attention. I’ll get him to watch it yet.
But the thing of interest is that this upload of the clip (done in Jan 2010) is still attracting recent comments. (I presume it must the version that everyone watches when they search for it.)
And generally speaking, nearly everyone commenting seems young, but very appreciative. I like this one:
my parents will do the arm thing and say "same as it ever was" all the time!! LOLOL
And this comment:
Such a cool video even till today
Best. Video. Ever
That’s nice. I feel the 1980's doesn't have much to be ashamed of after all.
