Themes of traveling, of old towns and dying towns, of towns not like yours and just like yours; of roads and escape, of running and driving and just getting away; of drinking, of fighting, of loving; of trains and cars and flying and floating; of old songs, of punk rock, of rock and roll.
All of that and more is what permeates within the confines of Songs You Used To Sing To Me, which features David Byrne and Caetano Veloso dueting on Talking Heads tracks; songs from The Hunger Games; old songs, covers, and new songs from Springsteen, Birdy, Delta Spirit, Heartless Bastards, fun. and Lynda Kay.
Foxy Shazam opens with:
I want my friends to think I’m awesome.
I want this world to think I care
I don’t care at all.
and Bruce ends with:
Carries saints and sinners
Carries losers and winners
Carries whores and gamblers
Carries lost souls
