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.

Razor & Tie's The Best of Toni Basil: Mickey & Other Love Songs is a fine 12-track collection that compiles nearly all of her best material.
