Rare Talking Heads Song Resurfaces Online


A late Christmas present came for fans of the Talking Heads this weekend!

One of the band’s rare instrumental tracks, simply entitled “Theme,” resurfaced online nearly four decades after it was first released when it was posted on the fan site, Talking-Heads.net.

According to Rolling Stone, the 5-minute song was originally captured during one of the band’s shows at CBGB in 1976 while they were opening for Television.

Frontman David Byrne can be heard at the beginning of the song with the intro, “This is an instrumental,” to which a voice from the crowd responds “No title?”

“We call it ‘Theme,’” Byrne answers, “but then we just keep it to ourselves.”
