Jesse Marco's 30 Favorite Albums

Talking Heads, Remain in Light (1980)

Label: Sire

Jesse Marco: "Definitely quintessential DJ-related sort of disco, punk-rock kind of sounds. 'Once in a Lifetime,' that's the big record. Actually, I heard Mark Ronson play that record once when I was watching him DJ, and I think that I just sort of immediately thought, 'This sounds amazing.'

It's sort of like the precursor to what we know now as disco, classic, or half-The Doors. Like a mish-mash. It had a little David Bowie in it, it was dance-rock you could say. A classic record. That was more of one of the ones that I bought the singles to the record, like vinyls, but the album I bought on iTunes. Had to admit that one! [Laughs.]"
