Dal primo album dei Talking Heads. La new wave cominciava allora allora a filtrare lentamente dal CBGB verso il grande pubblico. Qualche anno dopo la pubblicazione ”Talking Heads: 77” fu il primo disco che mi rivelò come il rock non si fosse estinto nel 1971, contestualmente alla scomparsa delle ultime tracce di psichedelia dal progressive e al fiorire del jazz rock, ma si fosse rintanato nei sotterranei statunitensi sopravvivendo e rinvigorendosi per riemergere più bello e più superbo che pria.

I'm writing 'bout the book I read
I have to sing about the book I read
I'm embarrassed to admit it
Hit the soft spot in my heart
When I found out you wrote the
Book I read so

Take my shoulders as they touch your arms and I
Feel unconscious but I feel alright the
Book I read was in your eyes, ooh

Ohh, I'm living in the future
I feel wonderful
I'm tippin' over backwards
I'm so ambitious
I'm looking back I'm
Running a race and you're the book I read so

Feel my fingers as they touch your arms
I'm spinning around but I feel alright
The book I read was in your eyes, ooh

Na na na
Na na na
Na na na

Ohh
Oh I'm, I'm living in the future
I feel wonderful
I'm tippin' over backwards
I'm so ambitious
I'm looking back I'm
Running a race and you're the book I read so

Feel my fingers as they touch your arms I'm
Spinning around and I feel alright
The book I read was in your eyes ooh

Na na na
Na na na
Na na na
