Talking Heads’ Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?

What a cool song by the Talking Heads, from their debut album (1977, I believe). In the early days, this band played at the now famous CBGB, like other bands such as the Ramones, the Misfits, Blondie, etc. Talking Heads is mostly known for its more polished sound of the 80’s though (ex. Burning down the house), but I like this song much better.

Do you remember that Psycho Killer was featured in the Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror XIX, when Homer is hired to kill celebrities? People behind The Simpsons really have a knack for finding the perfect song each time.
