Tom Tom Club: Genius of Love

I’ve been hooked on listening to Tom Tom Club lately, after the news of their new album coming out this month.

A splinter group of The Talking Heads, the band was formed by bassist Tina Weymouth and drummer Chris Frantz in 1981.

“Genius of Love” is not only a huge hit for them, but its hypnotic groove has also been sampled and used as the foundation for countless hip hop songs. This performance is taken from the Talking Heads DVD Stop Making Sense.
