Le site Tom Tom Club. Graphisme James Rizzi pour le site et le clip de Genius of Love. Genius of Love, chanson culte in Tom Tom Club l’album. 1981
«What you gonna do when you get out of jail?/ I’m gonna have some fun / What do you consider fun? / Fun, natural fun
I’m in heaven / With my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend / There’s no beginning and there is no end / Time isn’t present in that dimention / He’ll take my arm / When we’re walkin’, rolling and rocking / It’s one time I’m glad I’m not a man / Feels like I’m dreaming, but I’m not sleeping
I’m in heaven / With the maven of funk mutation / Clinton’s musicians such as Bootsy Collins / Raise expectations to a new intention / No one can sing / Quite like Smokey, Smokey Robinson / Wailin’ and shakin’ to Bob Marley / Reggae’s expanding with Sly and Robbie
[All the weekend / Boyfriend was missing / I surely miss him / The way he’d hold me in his warm arms / We went insane when we took cocaine.]
Stepping in a rhythm to a Kurtis Blow / Who needs to think when your feet just go / With a hiditihi and a hipitiho / Who needs to think when your feet just go …Bohannon Bohannon Bohannon Bohannon / Who needs to think when your feet just go …Bohannon Bohannon Bohannon Bohannon / James Brown, James Brown / James Brown, James Brown
If you see him / Please remind him, unhappy boyfriend / Well he’s the genius of love / He’s got a greater depth of feeling / Well he’s the genius of love / He’s so deep.»
