Any list of the best concert movies of all time would include the Talking Heads‘ still astounding “Stop Making Sense” (check out our entry for the movie in our feature The 10 Best Concert Movies Ever). Those of you who have seen it already know that 30 years have not dimmed such a wildly inventive and flat out fun experience. And for those of you who dig Talking Heads but somehow never managed to see it? Now is the time!
Earlier this month, the Jonathan Demme directed movie enjoyed its 30th anniversary with a re-release on Blu-ray and is now available digitally for this first time (get your order in at iTunes right now). “Stop Making Sense” captures the Talking Heads at the peak of the band’s powers, kicking off with David Byrne alone onstage singing “Psycho Killer.” Song by song, the stage fills up with Byrne’s fellow musicians, until the fabled culmination finds Byrne donning a giant white suit. And so, we’ve got a special treat for readers — a copy of “Stop Making Sense” on Blu-ray signed by the band.
