Talking Heads Take Me To The River one of the few white bands whose soul cover better than original

and I don't even like their usual upper-middle class hipster vibe.
I respect their music, I guess, and don't "hate" them like I would something like Creed or Limp Bizkit...but just found it weird when they're considered a dance funk band at times when they sound so jittery and mathy and not at all rubbery and free-flowing like most good funk...well, I guess instrumentally they are...it's Byrne's smarmy vocalizing that ruins it.
Crimson 3 80s albums better at it.
Take Me To The River is an exception though and should be more of a classic-rock staple than it is...I've heard it before at least on local station.
