I find myself sometimes, searching the YouTube for interviews with people. I’ve been watching some interviews with David Byrne. Here are words from it.
David Byrne on Letterman
(2 min 54) on the Talking Heads album Speaking in Tongues album
Letterman : “you wrote the lyrics; you originally just started out with sounds and then substituted words”
Byrne : “yeah, I originally sang nonsense and made words to fit that, that worked out alright
some people are really good at writing little stories, I don’t find that as easy.”
