"Road To Nowhere" - Talking Heads (1985)


"The first single from 1985's Little Creatures, 'Road To Nowhere' is gimmicky almost to the point of novelty. Starting with an earnest gospel-like a cappella introduction -- more in the austere four-square Methodist style of church singing than the flashier choirs -- the song slides into a thumping, accordion-led shuffle influenced by but not particularly beholden to traditional zydeco."
