I've been a Laurie Anderson fan since Mr. Heartbreak, and on that album she collaborated with Peter Gabriel to create Excellent Birds. She also performed that song during her concert-movie Home of the Brave (I'd recommend watching the whole thing if you have the time), and Peter Gabriel released a version of it called This Is The Picture for cassette and CD issues of So. I also found another version on youtube that must be some kind of reissue. It's interesting to compare all the different manifestations of a single song, what do you think of this song and these differing versions?
PS if there's ever any chance to get Laurie Anderson involved with PWYM, please do. I think she's one of the greatest musicians of our time.
