David Byrne - 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.

What happens when one of the biggest musical icons of the 80s, the Talking Heads' David Byrne, covers a mega-hit from another 80s icon who played in a completely different genre? You get this fantastic tribute to Whitney Houston's classic 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody.'


I can't say it's better than the original. That's one of the best pop songs ever recorded (and, this probably goes without saying, monumentally better than modern pop music.) But it is a unique and catchy spin on a classic that can really stand on its own.

This comes off the Live at Union Chapel DVD, in case anyone's curious.
