Friday fanfare: “Slippery People”

The existence of The Last Waltz precludes Stop Making Sense from being the greatest concert movie ever made, but Jonathan Demme’s movie of a Talking Heads concert from 1984 is pretty damn awesome, and this is one of my favorite songs from it, the stellar live version of “Slippery People,” which is a decent little new-wave-y/reggae-ish song on Speaking in Tongues, but live in the movie is a much more intense, rockin’ number with guitars and bongos emphasized over synthesizers.
