David Byrne’s Here Lies Love

Pursuitist Luxury Best Luxury Blog

David Byrne, former frontman for Talking Heads, has been busy lately. He’s written a book, Bicycle Diaries, and designed whimsical bike racks in New York City. Now, he’s recorded a pop song cycle, Here Lies Love, about Imelda Marcos, infamous wife of the Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Byrne says he’s long been interested in the theatrical trappings of powerful leaders. “When I heard some years ago that Imelda Marcos really loved going to discos and that she had a mirror ball in her New York townhouse,” he says, “I thought, ‘Well, here’s a powerful person who lives in that kind of a bubble, but also brings her own soundtrack to it.’ ” – from NPR
