Talking Heads – Wild Wild Life

The video for “Wild Wild Life” was released in 1986, it was the lead single from The Talking Heads’ album True Stories. It would go on to win”Best Group Video” at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1987. The video itself was taken from the 1986 David Byrne film, True Stories, with some additional content added. In my opinion, John Goodman, prior to his fame in Roseanne, steals the show in both the movie and the music video.
