    I recently heard a song on a TV show -- with the lyrics "When the Walls Come Crumbling" (or something close to those) -- that sounded very much like it was done by the Talking Heads.

    But when I've searched for a Talking Heads song with that title, I've come up with a blank.

    Does anyone have any idea of who does this song... and what the title is?

    Maybe John Cougar Melloncamp?

    I was gonna post this also, but they don't sound much like the Talking Heads.
    Love me some TSC, though!

    That does sound very Talking Heads-ish.

    My immediate thought but not really Talking Headish

    So the OP has not returned to comment. Ok. Worthless thread. Gone Again.

    The trick I learned is to expect nothing, and then you get surprised sometimes.

    This is as close to the Heads as anything mentioned. In fact the only one even sort of close.

    I bet it's The Call. But all we can do now is speculate...:shrug:

    Yep, it was The Call.

    Thanks, folks. :wave:

    Sadly, I don't have any of the discs where I see it's listed. :cry:




    A bit o'patience, lad.

    Love this song. Was my first thought when I saw the thread title...followed by Melloncamp. But the Style Council song is great too. Man, who knew there were so many great songs about bad construction. :shh:

    I’ll play. How about the chorus of Tweeter and the Monkeyman from the Traveling Wilburys:

    “And the walls came down, all the way to hell...”
