Sam Recommends: “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” by Talking Heads

Have you ever been happy and sad at the same time, or loved someone so much it made you want to cry?

I remember the very first time I felt that way.

I was pretty young, no older than 6, and my mom was tucking me in. She expressed this exact sentiment, saying that she loved my sister and I so much that sometimes she cried at night just thinking about it, or worrying about us, or thinking about us growing up. I realized that’s how I felt about her, too.

That’s the feeling I’m reminded of when I listen to “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody).”

Here’s to life’s ambivalent moments, to love so deep that it leaves us feeling vulnerable to life’s whims, and to my momma ❤
