[[GenreBusting The new wave musical style of Talking Heads combined elements of punk rock, avant-garde, pop, funk, afrobeat and art rock.]] Frontman and songwriter David Byrne contributed whimsical, esoteric lyrics to the band's songs, and emphasized their showmanship through various multimedia projects and performances. The band worked with famous RecordProducer Music/BrianEno on all their albums between 197880, whose influence steered them towards their SignatureStyle dominated by incredibly dense, hypnotic funk grooves over which Byrne would improvise his vocals. They parted ways with Eno after their masterpiece ''Remain in Light'' and continued with a LighterAndSofter sound for the rest of their career, to increasing dissatisfaction from fans and critics. In 1986, they made a movie called ''Film/TrueStories,'' starring FaceOfTheBand David Byrne as the narrator. (Ironically, the film itself falls under the ''trope'' TalkingHeads.)
