Take Me to the River
CD Source: Once in a Lifetime (76-92)(3)(+DVD of videos)
Time: 5:00
Sequenced by: More Songs About Buildings And Food album
Honored by:
 
This song is now well known in both Al Green`s original classic soul version and Talking Heads` savvy, soul-pop fusion cover. Despite obvious differences in rhythm, orchestration, and vocal style, the groove just won`t quit. The Heads` version became a top 40 single in winter 1979, thankfully bringing both the original song and the covering group to the attention of much wider audiences than before.
