Talking Heads - Speaking In Tongues

The Heads released Speaking in Tongues, their first album of new material in three years, in 1983 which would be their highest-charting album ever (Number 15, 1983) and yielded their biggest hit single, 'Burning Down the House' (No. 9, 1983), which was also featured in an eye-catching video that MTV had in heavy rotation. They toured with an expanded band including Alex Weir, a guitarist with the Brothers Johnson. The tour was documented in the acclaimed movie 'Stop Making Sense,' directed by Jonathan Demme. The soundtrack (No. 41, 1984) spent nearly two years on the pop albums chart
