one of my favorite talking heads songs
im immediately taken away to a beautiful island
staring at the ocean with a margarita in hand
how can you not be happy?
meet me in costa rica.

~*~ listen to these covers:
arcade fire ~ this must be the place
counting crows ~ this must be the place

the less we say about it the better
make it up as we go along
feet on the ground
head in the sky
its ok
i know nothing’s wrong
.. nothing ..

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    This Heads tune is IMHO their best and for a little while I was ending everyone of my mixed CDs with it.

    Shawn Colvin does a GREAT slow acoustic cover of this one, too. Esp. sweet w/ the female vocal.

    Ain’t nothing like the original, tho. Thanks for sharing.
