Far less magical but disturbingly more horrific is The Talking Heads‘ Psycho Killer. The theories behind this song’s meaning range from a first person account of a schizophrenic outsider to a soliloquy sprouting from Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz, all sung with a suspiciously convincing vocal articulation. But even if David Byrne is secretly a deranged bilingual psycho killer, the song has left a lasting bone chill since its mega-hit reception in 1977. Unfortunately, the song predates the dawn of MTV but, lucky for us, OurStage artist Clint Crisher has taken this mattersinto his own hands.
Crisher merged the Talking Heads’ classic with a synthesized dance beat then made a music video. The video displays an escaped convict (prison suit and all) wandering around various parts of Hollywood with blurred vision and a raw voice, all adding to the effect of an uncomfortably estranged outsider.
