Walk it down. Talk it down.

Walk It Down – Talking Heads (1985) 96kHz/24bit FLAC 1080p Video

“Walk It Down” was released in June 1985 on Talking Heads’ sixth studio album, Little Creatures. I love every track from this album (it’s tied with Fear Of Music as my favorite by the band)….and I’ve been wanting to make some vids using the 96/24 DVD-A source tracks. I’d found this video short awhile back and after working it up to look better full screen HD, I’d been experimenting with it for a few tunes…..I liked it best with this track. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for watching!

I haven’t yet been able to source the clip I worked up as there was no title, and very little information in the short credits. After processing the whole video, I edited out a couple sections to use with this song and then edited a mix to fit this video. I’ll post title information on the video short film if I can find it. It was wonderful and I’d love to credit it to the original creator. If it’s familiar to anyone, please let me know! Thnx!

The album examines themes of Americana and incorporates elements of country music, with many of the songs featuring steel guitar. It was voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll and is the band’s biggest-selling studio album, with over two million copies sold in the US.

The cover art was created by outsider artist Howard Finster, and was selected as album cover of the year by Rolling Stone magazine.

In 2005, it was remastered and re-released by Warner Music Group on their Warner Bros./Sire Records/Rhino Records labels in DualDisc format, with three bonus tracks on the CD side (early versions of “Road To Nowhere” and “And She Was” and an extended mix of “Television Man”). The DVD-Audio side includes both stereo and 5.1 surround high resolution (96 kHz/24bit) mixes, as well as a Dolby Digital version and the videos of “And She Was” and “Road to Nowhere.” In Europe, it was released as a CD+DVDA two disc set rather than a single DualDisc. The reissue was produced by Andy Zax with Talking Heads.

[Lyrics]
I…I am just a number
I…hang on to what I got
You…say what you want to
I…I…I…I just try to stay alive
I…put myself together
People say, get away, somebody will turn you in
Life, life without surrender
Togetherness…ecstasy is what I need
I can laugh, but I should cry
When love and understanding are the ultimate crimes
Walk it down. Talk it down.
(oh, oh, oh) Sympathy. Luxury.
Somebody will take you there.
Walk it down. Talk it down.
(oh, oh, oh) Sympathy. Luxury.
Somebody will take you there.
She…says she remembers.
Time…long time ago.
We…belong together.
I…I…I…I turn up the radio
Lies, lies and propaganda
I…gonna tell you what I need
Life, life, without surrender
Togetherness…ecstasy is what I need
I got yours and you got mine
And I can swim, but I should fly
Walk it down. Talk it down.
(oh, oh, oh) Sympathy. Luxury.
Somebody will take you there.
Walk it down. Talk it down.
(oh, oh, oh) Sympathy. Luxury.
Somebody will take you there.
Ain’t no crime to believe
I took my money, I bet my life
What you see is what you get
But it sure ain’t what we need.
Walk it down. Talk it down.
(oh, oh, oh) Sympathy. Luxury.
Somebody will take you there.
Walk it down. Talk it down.
(oh, oh, oh) Sympathy. Luxury.
Somebody will take you there. 1080p video flac
