The Overload Lyrics - Talking Heads

Review The Song (3)

A Terrible Signal
Too Weak To Even Recognize
A Gentle Collapsing
The Removal Of The Insides

I'm Touched By Your Pleas
I Value These Moments
We're Older Than We Realize
...In Someone's Eyes

A Frequent Returning
And Leaving Unnoticed
A Condition Of Mercy
A Change In The Weather

A View To Remember
The Center Is Missing
They Question How The Future Lies
...In Someone's Eyes
The Gentle Collapsing
Of Every Surface
We Travel On The Quiet Road
...The Overload

Overload | Reviewer: Mark | 3/24/10

I put this album on my iPod a few months ago, but didn't get a chance to listen to it fully. When Overload came on, I was tired and listless, and my first initial reaction, was like whoa is this Joy Division? Did iTunes fuck up the album art and titles again? I like the song, sounds like Closer, but it's always hard loving something JD-esque when it's not the real deal.

A riposte to Joy Division | Reviewer: MC Culloch | 4/16/09

The song was written by David Byrne after reading about Joy Division, a kind of a homage without actually hearing the Manchester band. When Byrne did hear Joy Division's music he was disappointed, stating it was too traditionally rocky.

Hints of Goth and Post Punk | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/15/09

A surprising departure from most of Talking Heads work... Very post-punk/goth as opposed to the art school sound that they original cultivated, and the world influenced direction that they eventually pursued.
