The keyboards on "Once In A lifetime" are played by Jerry, not Eno. Who told you otherwise?

From one of the ones there at the time!

Remain in Light is incredible.

Did anyone film any of the recording sessions at that time - or for any albums for that matter?

I think it would be really interesting watching how one of those tracks went from start to completion.

I also saw how parts of True Stories was recorded in Texas, which I find cool since I've resided there most of my life.

The first album I bought by them was The Name of This Band is Talking Heads.

It is their best, I think.

Second best? Tough on e- but I am going to say Fear of Music

As a debut album 77 is ground breaking, but my personal favourites gotta be stop making sense. Its bigger than a house.

I'm going to buck the trend here and say their best album is - no wait, trying not to get "best" mixed up with "favorite" - think there's a slight difference between the two. Think their best might just be "Fear of Music", but my favorite is a toss-up between "77 and "More Songs...". Those albums sounded so incredibly new, fresh and original at the time that it's hard to explain unless you were a 16 year old suburban kid at the time growing a little tired of bands like "Foghat" and "Kansas" (which are both bands that I like...nothing wrong with them at all!).

That's a tough one, almost like a parent having to choose their favorite child which is not fair. lol I would have to pick Little Creatures with More Songs About Buildings And Food a close second.
