“Genius of Love” – Tom Tom Club

A loving tribute to funk, recorded by a couple of Talking Heads on vacation (Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz), Adrian Belew, and others. The song became a classic, being sampled endlessly in the early days of hip-hop. However, as great and as groundbreaking as the song was/is, the animated video is even better. Almost 35 years later, it still seems revolutionary.
