Take Me to the River

Talking Heads in 1978 did an appropriately stiff white-funk version of the Al Green classic "Take Me to the River", which arguably became even more well-known than the original, by virtue of its wide acceptance as a new-wave standard by hipsters and chart watchers alike. Check out this terrific extended live rendition of this monumental plastic-soul number, performed during Talking Heads' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2002.
