Such a catchy song. Even though it gets used in just about every movie, TV show, trailer, and commercial, it never gets old.

Many artists who have a track on the level of something like Psycho Killer struggle to create another quite of the same caliber. Not Talking Heads. I've put a lot of thought into this and Once In A Lifetime might have a legitimate case for best song of all time. Utterly Brilliant.
