THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Tom Tom Club – “Genius Of Love”

 

“Genius of Love” was Tom Tom Club’s second single from their eponymous debut album (1981)

“Genius of Love” became a commercial success that performed better than Talking Heads’ previous singles. Chris Frantz credited the song for convincing David Byrne to continue with Talking Heads. On its release in November 1981, “Genius of Love” became a huge hit in the clubs.

Tom Tom Club appeared in the 1984 Talking Heads concert movie Stop Making Sense performing “Genius of Love”, although this incarnation of the group did not include Tina Weymouth’s sisters Laura and Lani.
