Despite the heady creativity of their first four long players, it was their fifth (1983’s Speaking In Tongues), and more specifically its single ‘Burning Down The House’, that became Talking Heads’ commercial breakthrough. The closing track ‘This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)’ was the gem of the album. Listening to it now, the song sounds very Tom Tom Club. At the time, it was the closest thing to a love song in David Byrne’s catalogue.
