In 2012, DJ Danny Tenaglia faced an uncertain future in music after writing a Facebook post that he was "resigning": "I HAVE SEEN THE MOUNTAINTOP as a DJ and I just need to STOP and smell the roses of my life." More than a year later, Tenaglia's DJ career is still thriving, and he has released a new compilation, DJ Mix for Electric Zoo.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
