Here Lies Love

Here David Byrne turns an unwieldy premise — a musical dramatization of former Philippines first lady Imelda Marcos' early life — into dizzy fun by setting 22 songs to Fatboy Slim's lush and bustling dance beats. (Marcos was a clubgoer who had a disco ball in her New York town house.) Guests include Tori Amos, Cyndi Lauper and Santigold on the wah-powered funk single "Please Don't." The songs depict Marcos' outsize anxieties, desires and ambitions. Dig into that heady stuff if you like — or just surrender to the inexorable beats.
