MGMT Cover Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place”


Back before MGMT ever had MGMT they were just some college hipsters at Wesleyan. This was before hipsters became a negative term, before “Kids” was a classic indie song, and before the “change” of Obama. While this cover is not nearly as good as the original, one can tell that these kids had potential. “This Must Be The Place,” is by far one of my favorite Talking Heads song. During a summer between my college years, I worked at an Irish pub with two Irish female immigrants, one of which was Emma. She was small, rambunctious and a hell of a mean drunk at times. Whenever she was acting shitty, playing “This Must Be The Place” was the best way to get her smile,and stop screaming at her husband over the phone.
