Talking Heads - It Will Never Get any Better Than This

Here's an absolutely sublime clip from the greatest concert movie ever made. Stop Making Sense is so good that, when it was released in 1984, questions were asked in Parliament. Sir Trevor Hives MP tabled a motion that no other music should be made from that day forth and all musicians should be made to seek alternative employment. The motion was defeated initially by 246 votes to 251. Hives sought a compromise, that all New Wave and Post Punk bands were to immediately stop being any good, and the bill was eventually passed in its altered form.
