Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense

Things I love about this:
- That little swaying motion Tina Weymouth does when she plays her bass
- What an enormous blast everyone on stage is having
- Bernie Worrell
- JAAAAMES BRRROOOOWWWN
- Alex Weir
- The kid with the unicorn
- "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)"
- ONIONS
- Ednah Holt
- Lynn Mabry
- The percussion section
- "FUN—nasty FUN!"
- The status of each performer on stage as an artistic equal—how the cultural give-and-take of the group's varied influences meshes together into something so beautiful and odd
- Everyone yelling the chorus to "Burning Down the House"
- Everyone running in place during "Life During Wartime"
- Jordan Cronenweth
- David Byrne, New Wave's answer to Buster Keaton
- The big suit
- At least 65,000 other things I'm forgetting because it's late and I'm tired goodnight
