I sometimes pretend the last concert I went to was by Talk Talk. I may have seen Bob Dylan more recently, but the former makes a better story.
Anyway, here’s a video of Talk Talk playing “It’s My Life.” An article online says. “The video shows Mark Hollis at the London Zoo in Regent’s Park, but he’s not singing – his mouth is digitally obscured as he stands among the exhibits. The rest of the footage came from the BBC nature series Life on Earth.” The song doesn’t seem connected to the video, but it makes me happy to see zebras and flamingos.
Here’s to the wild animals!

I love Talk Talk 🙂 I was thinking about this video the other day, what connection the animals have to the song – I linked it to the almost animal-like screechy synths which appear on a few songs on the album. What do you think? 🙂
I love your take on it, because I had none! I enjoy rock videos because they’re mystifying.
