I heard it yesterday for the first time. Christ! I nearly pissed myself. Those lyrics are so bad. 'Man on mir' seems like long ago

Heard it a few times this week in the car and though the exact same thing myself. Another rip-off is Take That's new song, I reckon Gary Barlow has been listening to Paul Simon too much.

They seem to be making pretty big strides across the pond. No harm in taking influence from The Talking Heads in my eyes!
