Format: Album vinyle
Here we have one of the most overlooked albums in not only new wave but in the 80's in general; dubbed the ultimate one hit wonder Toni Basil is in the Smithsonian for crying out loud because "Mickey" was such a huge hit and then there was nothing else from this super duper choreographer gone new wave pop princess. Of all the songs on Word Of Mouth, "Mickey" is probably actually one of the more lackluster tunes, perhaps only because it's played to death even in 2007; I mean it is a great song and when you listen to the album in full you start tapping and chanting along with Toni and her girls but the other songs found on this album is what really makes it a premiere footnote in the new wave world of the early 80's. Incorporating members of Devo as band members, Toni used her high chirped hiccup vocals to good use on hilarious, endearing and best of all hugely fun songs. The album was released in two different versions, first as a 9 song album in the UK and then a few months later with a different track list and a few new songs it was released in the US. The UK version had a much more interesting track listing opening with "Nobody" was a single even hitting a notch in the UK, and it's one of my favorites on the album, "I don't want nobody/ I don't want no one", refraining from just the obvious of wanting to be alone, the verses of the song actually talk about body functions and you realize the whole double meaning found in the lyrics, "Hanging Around" was released only on the original UK version of the album but it's high energy fun, then onto my two favorites of Word Of Mouth - a rocking pop track called "Theif On The Loose" which changes melody a few times and is mostly just a cut up Benatarish sung doozy - "you better stop that man/cuz he's walking away with my heart in his hand.." and a new wave cover of Nick Gilder's "Time After Time" - "always changing your colored hair/I don't care if you come and go/ you're starring in my video/you're the great pretender/a hero of your gender/time after time you pretend but you don't listen/time after time you arrive another person"; then a psycho tranced version of Burt Bacharach's "Little Red Book", Devo's "Be Stiff" and the Devo written "Space Girls" both set to trancy robotic hip waves, and another Devo cover, this time of their song "Pity You" which for some reason is changed to the title "You Gotta Problem"; either way, this is a great cover and I'm sure she had the approval of the Mothersbaugh boys since they are right there on the record. When Word Of Mouth was released in the US about 6 months after the UK release, there were two songs added to the mix and the track listing was rearranged - gone was "Hanging Around" and "Mickey" became the first track; and they moved the great "Theif" and "Time" to the end of the album, but along with those changes came two newly recorded gems, a punky electronic pop version of "Rock On" which years later would give strange Michael Damien a hit; but with the robotic vocals by Toni and the boys of Devo on the music, this version is to me even better than the 70's original and just a mention of James Dean seems to put an iconic twist on any song - "hey kids rock and roll/rock on/ooh my soul/hey kids boogie too/didn't you?/hey shock/summertime blues/jump up and down in my blue suede shoes/hey kids rock and roll/rock on" and finally what would become Toni's second US single "Shoppin' From A To Z", a manic power pop new wave tune about well, grocery shopping. The album version is fun but it's really the single version that made the song what it is, as Toni declares, "good girls shop/bad girls shop/shoppin' from a to z", she goes through her list of items, "I went shoppin' with a list from a to z/a - apples, b - bananas" and then as the song progresses she has encounters with the samples lady, the check out girl and oh my she forgets her list, so in an audiable and chant worthy countdown you get to help out Toni by going through A to Z - incidentally there isn't anything on her list that starts with x (X - NOTHING!); in the single version the final countdown is done by several different back vocalists doing different styled voices on each it. It's really something to hear; and to see. In fact most of the album Word Of Mouth was done in video form. Toni was and is a choregrapher and the whole purpose in making her album was so she could have something to lip synch to when she did a videocassette. It's hard to find but Word Of Mouth, the video is out there and until then you can check out most of the videos incluuding the one for "Shoppin From A To Z" at You Tube.
