Genius of Love by Tom Tom Club
"Genius of Love" by Tom Tom Club, was released in 1981 and became a huge #1 Dance/Club smash, even peaking at #2 on the US Rap/Hip-Hop Charts. The song would be Tom Tom Club's only US Billboard hit, peaking at #31- although it would go on to become one of the most sampled tracks of the 80s. This song instantly reminds me of summer whenever I hear it. It's pure, joyous 80s dance pop, and this is a perfect tune to blast on a warm summer evening with the top down.
