Paul McCartney - Coming up
Paul McCartney is amazing. The guy who wrote Hey Jude also wrote Coming Up, which is like a perfect Talking Heads song. He even made a really good ambient album, The Fireman - Rushes, with Youth from Killing Joke/early Orb.
The video of the Twin Freaks remix of Coming Up features John Lennon complimenting the song. According to the song's wikipedia entry, Coming Up was an inspiration in Lennon's return to music with Double Fantasy.
Coming Up had a nice sleeve, too.
