So-Called Independent Florida Senate Loser Charlie Crist Apologizes for Use of 1985 Talking Heads Song “Road to Nowhere” in a 2010 Campaign
Road to Nowhere … more like Charlie Crist’s political career to nowhere.
Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist has settled his lawsuit with David Byrne, the lead singer of the Talking Heads for Crist’s unauthorized use of the song “Road to Nowhere”. The song was used during Crist’s campaign without permission. As part of the settlement, Davis Byrne forced Charlie Crist to record embarrassing apology for stealing Talking Heads song, watch the VIDEO here.
A much more fitting Crist theme song: Karma Chameleon by Culture Club
Desert loving in your eyes all the way
If I listen to your lies would you say
I’m a man without conviction
I’m a man who doesn’t know
How to sell a contradiction
You come and go, you come and go
Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has settled a lawsuit filed by Talking Heads singer David Byrne after Crist used one of the group’s songs without permission in a campaign ad last year, both parties confirmed Monday.
Terms of the settlement were not released, but it included a recorded apology by Crist that was posted on YouTube Monday afternoon. Byrne had sued Crist for $1 million for using the song “Road to Nowhere” in a YouTube video attacking Marco Rubio, one of the governor’s opponents in the U.S. Senate race.
Crist said Monday that he was pleased with the terms of the settlement and that Byrne “couldn’t have been a better guy” when they met last week to mediate the case.
Charlie Crist, the once Republican turned Independent, but really wannabe pseudo Democrat lost to Republican Marco Rubio badly in the 2010 Florida US Senate race. A fitting end to a disastrous Senate campaign.
