David Byrne FeelingsHere’s a clip of David Byrne’s “Dance on Vaseline”, taken from his 1997 album Feelings.

By the end of Talking Heads, Byrne took an interest in Brazilian music, which he promoted on his Luaka Bop label, along with making several solo records which featured Brazilian sounds. On this cut, you can tell that he’s throwing in some of his earlier influences as well, and it becomes something entirely new beyond an established artist who’s trying his hand at world music. This is danceable, sexy, pop music with a little bit of menace lurking underneath.

Take a look at the clip and tell me what you think of it.
