Tom Tom Club – Genius of love

These guys are an offshoot of Talking Heads, a pretty good place of origin. I this this is great, with an original and clever sound.

If the mark of a great song is how much it is sampled, this must be pretty special. A veritable who’s who of hip hop including Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Tupac Shakur and Public Enemy used this in various tracks. Not to mention this (WOW – blast from the past!!) or this (HA!). The last two are rarefied air indeed.
