18/12/2020: “Wear Your Love Like Heaven” by Definition of Sound

I’m not sure I’d characterise this music as hip hop, as such. It’s more like breakbeat with a bit of rapping. It’s all gloriously early 90s, though!

There’s a hint of Fatboy Slim to the easygoing, energetic sound. It’s that same method of creating a brilliant pastiche from disconnected elements of a variety of songs.

The song does sample Donovan’s eclectic 1967 original for the chorus, and although I respect Donovan immensely as a songwriter, I think his vocals on that track work better here, with all the extra weirdness stripped out!

“Wear Your Love Like Heaven” was released in 1991.
