Little Creatures is the sixth studio album by American new wave band Talking Heads, released in June 1985. The album examines themes of Americana and incorporates elements of country music, with many of the songs featuring steel guitar. It was voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll and is the band's biggest-selling studio album, with over two million copies sold in the US. The cover art was created by outsider artist Howard Finster, and was selected as album cover of the year by Rolling Stone magazine.

Because Talking Heads have spoiled us with the richness of their music for nine years, we have come to expect a bold advance with each new album. So what is it here? Gregorian disco? Or perhaps electro-shakuhachi, or Indo-punk? Actually, Little Creatures is a retreat from the avant-garde, a retreat that begins immediately in the cover art. On past albums the band wore its art-school training on its sleeve, devising experimental graphics for its LP Jackets

The first Talking Heads album,, Talking Heads: 77, received acclaim and produced their first charted single, "Psycho Killer"  . Three more albums followed: 1985's Little Creatures (which featured the hit singles "And She Was" and "Road to Nowhere"), 1986's True Stories (Talking Heads covering all the soundtrack songs of Byrne's musical comedy film, in which the band also appeared), and 1988's Naked.

Little Creatures" by Talking Heads was by the far their breeziest album. This album was released in 1985 when pop music was at its most popular. And so "Little Creatures" is a fun, perky, loopy pop album - Talking Heads style of course. David Byrne's lyrics are still mind-bending as ever. His vocals are unique as always, and even when he sounds really sarcastic, he has this uncanny ability to come off really sincere. The first single that was released from "Little Creatures" was "And She Was" which is the very first Talking Heads song I remember hearing on the radio when I was a kid. Of course at the time, I just thought "And She Was" was a love song, but when I grew up - I discovered that the song is about a girl tripping on a mind-altering substance: "And she was looking at herself, and things were looking like a movie.
