Click below for a Tom Tom Club sample:

Genius of Love

 
Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz put together this band to explore the dance and funk rhythms they couldn't with Talking Heads.  By now everyone knows "Genius of Love."  Slightly fewer people know "Wordy Rappinghood."  They came back with a cover of "You Sexy Thing" in the late 90s.

Tom Tom Club's Deepest Grooves

Tom Tom Club (Sire, 1981)
With homages to Bohannon and members of T-Connection playing on the record, "Genius of Love" is a lowdown classic on par with Taana Gardner's "Heartbeat."

Close to the Bone (Sire, 1983)

The Good, The Bad and the Funky (Rykodisc, 2000)
