Stop Making Sense Trailer (1984)

"Why stop making sense? Why a movie? Why a big suit? Where do the odd movements come from? What will the band do next?" 16 November 1984 Factual, Music 88 mins

David Byrne walks onto the stage and does a solo "Psycho Killer." Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join him for two more songs. The crew is busy, still setting up. Then, three more musicians and two back-up singers join the band. Everybody sings, plays, harmonizes, dances, and runs. In this concert film, the Talking Heads hardly talk, don't stop, and always make sense.
