Still Life (Talking) is an album by the Pat Metheny Group, released in 1987 by Geffen Records. It features fusion and crossover jazz, combining Brazilian jazz-influenced harmonies with jazz, folk, and pop elements.

The album was recorded at Power Station, New York, New York from March to April 1987.

The song "Last Train Home" was used in a Christmas commercial by the Florida-based supermarket chain Publix, featuring relatives traveling to Florida by train for Christmas. The commercial aired every holiday season from 1987 to 1996. "Last Train Home" was also featured during The Weather Channel's "Local on the 8's" playlist in April 2000.

Music evokes emotions. And here? Going home. Everything is going to be all right. The day is done. The good fight is over. The light is on. There's warmth. Nostalgia.
