Chris Frantz and Tina Weyworth of Talking Heads stole the show from David Byrne with this tasty little side project in 1981. It started out as a bit of fun for the married couple and evolved into a smash hit that outshined anything by Talking Heads, until Speaking in Tongues hit the scene in 1983. And that’s just what this album is, a whole Jello factory full of fun–it’ll make you wiggle and jiggle more than a Bill Cosby tickle ghost. This is a must have for anyone that loves carefree 80s synthpop, post-disco, or whatever you want to call it.  It really deserves a category to itself.  Maybe squigglegiggle. That sounds pleasurable.

Video for the single version of Genius of Love. The tempo is a tiny bit faster than the LP version.
