“You’ve got a face with a view.”

It is a rare song that can be covered highly successfully in dramatically different ways.  “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” by Talking Heads is such a tune.  The original is great.  Also great is the mellow, acoustic version by Shawn Colvin with her haunting vocals.  Thirdly and equally great is the hip, dynamic version by Miles Fisher, which is even better when seen with his video parody of the film American Psycho.

So here you have them….
