Song of the Week: "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)"

I heard this in a movie this week, and I hadn't heard it in a really, really long time. It brings back, not necessarily memories, but the feeling of a time and place for me. David Byrne's songs about alienation, wandering, and longing always hit me where I live. And, to my surprise, I've only ever had the Talking Heads up here once. I'll just remedy that now...

"...alienation, wandering, and longing...", maybe; but there's a welcoming element to this track : "..it's ok, I know nothing's wrong..."
I take that line at face value in this song.

I was in the car with a friend of mine on the way to Cooperstown and this song had come on. he didn't remember it, and he fell in love with it all over. I love this song.
