"Thank You For Sending Me An Angel" as written by and David Byrne....
Oh oh, baby you can walk, you can talk just like me
You can walk, you can talk just like me
You can look, tell me what you see
You can look, you won't see nothing like me
If you look around the world

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, baby you can walk, you can talk just like me
With a little practice, you can walk, you can talk just like me
If that's what you wanna do
Well, you can look, you'll walk in circles around me
But first I'll walk in circles 'round you, but first I'll walk around the world

I'm walking 'round the world, here we go
I, you can walk a little, I'll walk in circles 'round you
But first, show me what you can do

    General CommentI put this song in a mix of songs I made about babies, kids, etc., as we prepared for the birth of our daughter. I see this scene as a dad talking to his kid about life and the world. Except the dad is on speed, pretty amped up, and the baby is sitting there in the high chair just staring at him...

    General Commentyeah, this song is great.
    i mean, seeing this performed at the start of the Stop Making Sense movie totally revs up the action, like it just comes out of nowhere after those slow versions of Psycho Killer and Heaven. And the guitar parts are great, and Mr. Byrne is so... energized in his own quirky way... and he really is walking circles around the rest of us. Who wouldn't envy such a crazy man?
