Song of the Day: Talking Heads “Girlfriend is Better (Jkriv Better RMX)”
On a Talking Heads kick lately…For some reason I overlooked “Girlfriend is Better” off of their 1983 “Speaking in Tongues” LP until recently. What a dance floor jam! NYC’s JKriv lets the original song do most of the talking (as he should) — he just adds a subtle thump and rearranges it slightly to make it a bit more DJ and dance floor friendly…SO DAMN GOOD.
Established in Providence, RI in 1975, the Talking Heads rose to fame in the late 70s and early 80s in NYC. The band drew on a wide array of influences from rock, funk, R&B, and world rhythms.
