Talk Talk Lyrics


Since 1982, Talk Talk have established themselves as one of
the select few bands of the past decade who have succeeded
in selling records on their own artistic terms. Indeed,
since their "Natural History" collection caught the
industry unawares by quietly selling more than one million
copies worldwide in 1990, their new album "Laughing Stock"
became one of the most keenly anticipated British releases
in years.

Yet even as More...

Review about Talk Talk songs
UK video | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song It's My Life performed by Talk Talk

Never noticed one meaning of the video before (the lines over his smile are bars, his sad expression during the zoo scenes). Thirty years later I figure things out.

Communication Breakdown | Reviewer: Music Fan
    ------ About the song Living in Another World performed by Talk Talk

A beautifully written song about misperception. Two individuals involved in a relationship that have different feelings on how the relationship is going. You can liken it to one person is happy and the other is experiencing angst within the relationship. You see one thing and I see another. Totally sad.

    ------ About the song It's My Life performed by Talk Talk

Brilliant song from a brilliant and much under rated band. This song - It's my Life - was NOT written by Billy Joel, but by the band's singer, Mark Hollis and Tim Friese-Greene, another band member.
Hope that settles it!

    ------ About the song It's My Life performed by Talk Talk

Yea no doubt shouldn't do covers they're better at original stuff. This is my 2nd favorite mark Hollis song (I didn't know until recently billy Joel wrote it but that doesn't surprise me). It's really a poem in form and function..

Such a shame ( you have to hear it with the original video to get the intended effect) is my favorite. Hollis has always had a firm grasp on expressing his human condition. His body language is beautiful. Imagine rain man is a rock star...that's how I'd describe it.

Hypocrisy in religion | Reviewer: ilovethismusic
    ------ About the song Happiness Is Easy performed by Talk Talk

Here's what Mark Hollis said in an interview, "So Happiness Is Easy is about wars in the name of God. Religion and war, two very different things that have nothing in common. That’s the first one. The second I Don’t Believe In You, has as its subject the propaganda films in which the government promised in 1945 that now everything would be as fantastic. Look at what is reality." In another article, Mark said, "I believe in a human form of Christianity, in religion, any religion, which is based on the freedom to make choices for themselves, on respect for each other." The song I Believe In You is about heroin addiction.

    ------ About the song Happiness Is Easy performed by Talk Talk

"Religion supresses bit Christianity sets you free." No harshness intended, but you really didn't nunderstand those lyrics. Try changing the Christian references to another religion of your choice and watch how different you will think and lose your "spiritual understanding" of these lyrics. Then read up about Mark Hollis, and listen to Talk Talk's "I don't believe in you" followed by "I believe in you". Maybe you'll get a deeper understanding as to what was really meant.

    ------ About the song Happiness Is Easy performed by Talk Talk

Hmmm, it's interesting that someone actually understands the difference between religion(made made rule) and Christianity(Heavenly guidelines). Religion suppress but Christianity set you free.

    ------ About the song I Believe in You performed by Talk Talk

Talk talk is a great band. a bit borderline with new wave in its early years but grew up to be a pretty decent jazz alternative or whatever (i hate labels). this song is a 4 out of 5 for me. though it relates to something I never did (heroin) the melody is really soothing and added to a collection of sililar melodic styles that I listen to when I can't sleep. they're in the top 20 for me

Profound | Reviewer: Joel
    ------ About the song Life's What You Make It performed by Talk Talk

Such a simple, yet amazingly unshakable message. Life is totally what you make it. And Mark Hollis was correct; You can't escape it.

The album "The Colour of Spring" ponders life in general and this track is the summation. Beautiful arrangements, haunting bass, lyrics and the vocal to go with it. Try and track down any live versions you can, they seem to hit home even more.

the dice man | Reviewer: v
    ------ About the song Such a Shame performed by Talk Talk

Inspired by the book the Dice Man, where the man throws a dice, and each face of the dice decides the way he should live his life. I think here the song uses the books story to illustrate someone who is trying to break away from a relationship, throwing a dice to decide how to go on and to try to change his life and feelings..
