"Wild Wild Life" was a single from the Talking Heads album True Stories. It was released in 1986.

It was also covered by Wailing Souls for the 1993 movie Cool Runnings.

Its music video won "Best Group Video" at the MTV Video Music Awards 1987, beating "With or Without You" by U2 and "Don't Dream It's Over" by Crowded House, among others. The music video was taken from the film True Stories, with some additional content added.

John Goodman, in an early role, appeared in both the film and MTV versions of the video. The B-side of this single features him singing the song from the film People Like Us.

The Talking Heads version was featured in trailers for the 2006 animated film Over the Hedge, and also in the beginning of another animated film, Open Season, and is included on the soundtrack CD.

Looks like myspace videos have stopped working again, even on their own site. I contacted their support and reported the problem.

The lastest reply from myspace is in
Unfortunately, our tech team is only focusing on songs/videos uploaded within the last 3 years. There is no time frame of when media uploaded over 3 years ago will be fixed. We updated our player to HTML5. The videos (the few I checked on your website) are FLV files. Unfortunately, we do not offer a way to play or download these videos. I am including your email as feedback for a requested option.
I'll wait until August and then they will be deleted if not fixed by then.
