Former Talking Heads drummer Chris Frantz celebrates his 68th birthday today. He talks about the Talking Head song: “And She Was” from Little Creatures in 1985 written by david Byrne. it’s about a woman with the power to levitate.
”It’s a story about a woman who has the power to levitate above the ground and to check out all her neighbors from a kind of bird’s eye view. And the guy who’s writing the song is in love with her and he kinda wishes she would just be more normal and, like, come on back down to the ground [Laughs], but she doesn’t. She goes floating over the backyard and past the buildings and the schools and stuff and is absolutely superior to him in every way.”
