This Must be the Place (naive melody)

This song is by the Talking Heads – David Byrne, Chris Frantz, Jerry Harrison, and Tina Weymouth. It originally appeared as the closing tune on their “Speaking in Tongues” release.

I don’t often sing songs written by others, but every now and then I come across a song that fits me. Or I fit it. It’s a special pleasure to sing a song I didn’t write, the lyrics are always fresh and mysterious to me.
One of my all-time favorite songs to sing is Psycho Killer (also by the Talking Heads). With the Bobs, I must have sung it over a thousand times. “This Must be the Place” is an entirely different emotional direction from Psycho Killer, but it has the same depth – It’s constantly revealing new layers to me.
