David Byrne & Brian Eno: Life Is Long

David Byrne is one of those seminal musicians that too often gets forgotten amid the chaos of modern music. Always looking for good music, sometimes I get too caught up in the search for the new. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the artists of yesterday continue to produce incredible music that deserves our attention. Life Is Long is a good enough reminder as any. Written by the former Talking Head and long time friend, Brian Eno, Life Is Long’s charm lies in its simplicity. It doesn’t need flare, or hooks, or fireworks to impress you. Beautifully melodic and seemingly effortless, Life Is Long cuts through all the overproduction with lyrics and arrangement that speak to the wisdom and talent of its writers. Here’s to looking to the past. Links below.
