Husband-and-wife New Wave band, the Tom Tom Club, has a distinct sound unlike any other, perfectly proven through the eighties ever-sampled favorite “Genius of Love.”
Tom Tom Club released “Genius of Love” in 1981, and the disco classic has been a favorite ever since. It topped the Billboard Top 80 and continues to remain a timeless song that always sounds fresh.
Post-disco in the eighties doesn’t get better than this hit from the Tom Tom Club. It was their second single but greatest hit with a bassline that has you hooked on its funky sound from the start.
Clubs loved it, and fans from all genres just couldn’t get enough of the soulful hit. Husband and wife Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, who you may remember from Talking Heads, had forever proven their talent as a duo.
