Arguably the best single of 1989, Neneh Cherry's "Buffalo Stance" is layered like lasagna. The British-bred daughter of legendary jazz performer Don Cherry is a former punk rocker and she's definitely has that genre's sneer. The airy synth lines that introduce "Buffalo's" chorus point to mid-'80s synth pop, while the cuts and breaks are products of American hip-hop. Lean even closer and you can hear a sense of spiky entitlement as she introduces the track's individual instruments and proceeds to do her best Run impression, all of which makes this a groundbreaking single from a classic album.
