When you’re writing a book, you need a lot of words. Pretty much, right? But songs don’t need a lot of words – and sometimes, it doesn’t take a lot of words to say how a book makes someone feel. Here, in The Book I Read by The Talking Heads, there aren’t a lot of lyrics – but any author can appreciate the ones that are there: “I’m writing ’bout the book I read / I have to sing about the Book I read / I’m embarrassed to admit it hit the soft spot in my heart / When I found out you wrote the / Book I read” Have a listen … and smile.
