Listen to Talking Heads ‘This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)’ from Grey’s Anatomy

Talking Heads ‘This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)‘ a lovely addition to Grey’s Anatomy surgery scene

I don’t think there has been a Grey’s Anatomy episode over the last 10 years that has not had at least one superb song featured in it.

The Music Supervisor for this week’s episode of the medical drama, however, outdid him/herself. That is because he/she managed to feature not only iconic music from both Diana Ross, and The Commitments and a cool new cover song from Sleeping At Last, but also the Talking Heads classic ‘This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)‘.

This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)‘ was originally released by new wave band Talking Heads on their fifth studio album Speaking in Tongues way back in 1983. It resurfaced on the 2005 remastered version of the now-iconic album with a remastered version of its own.

It is a song that the band’s lead singer David Byrne has said several times he believes is the first love song he ever wrote.

This week, the track was played on Grey’s Anatomy┬áduring that incredibly stressful scene when Koracick and Amelia start Catherine’s surgery — Season 15, Episode 11, “Winner Takes It All“.

You can hear the 2005 Remastered Version of Talking Heads ‘This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody” in the video below. The entire remastered version of their album Speaking In Tongues is in the Spotify widget below that.
