Youth, in Repose

Two songs that I am certain define the mating rituals of the over-educated and under-utilized twentysomethings and early thirtysomethings of my generation are the Talking Heads This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) and Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere. So infatuated I am by these songs, I never pass up a chance to write about them. (This post features MGMT and Vampire Weekend.)

So on that note, here's an extended mix from the 1986 12" that includes a (get this!) Jellybean Dub. Jellybean appears to have been one of those go-to remixers in the 80's, like Shep Pettibone. As the early days of digital studio excess are in full effect here, it takes a couple of minutes to figure out that this is not an instrumental version of the theme from a teen comedy set in southern California. No cinematic introduction and a lot of digital cowbell.
