By Request

If you know the Tom Tom Club, this is the song you know them by.

The Tom Tom Club is founded by the married couple Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz. The two were in Talking Heads, a super avant-garde Alternative rock group. Anyway, the two started the Tom Tom Club as a joke side project, and never expected to blow up so much. The two claim they didn't want to take any spotlight away from their true love, the Talking Heads.

Anyway, this song is some pretty isn't much electronic, but it is Nu-Funk, which is infamous with a drum beat and many sampled vocals. Although some parts may sound rockish, the effects on the guitar and voice are surprising those of a synthesizer. You will probably recognize this song, as its been used in samples for hip hop countless times. So here it is, by request, the cutest song ever.

Get funky and mellow out a little,
