Something about this song makes people psycho...

Just came across this great cover of the classic Talking Heads song today.  This Aussie can really sing!

I was going to say it was my "favorite cover of Psycho Killer ever," but then I remembered the fabulous Bobs version, with the manic Gunnar Madsen taking the lead:

Of course, nothing can compare to the original, done in all earnestness here on the great English show The Old Grey Whistle Test back in the early days...

Anyway, thanks to Kate Miller-Heidke for keeping the Psycho Heads flame burning into the 2000's.

If you're interested in picking up the album (Little Eve), she also does a very nice cover of Joni Mitchell's "River" (here's Joni's original).  Kate's got great taste.  FYI, both covers are available on the bonus disc version only.
