Did I get your attention?? I just went to a Happy Birthday celebration of a dear friend of mine who turned the big 60 and he is a Scorpio....the Sex sign...lol. It made me think about sex in songs of which there are a ton and I'd love to know which songs you think about. I ended up thinking of Studio 54, the famous club of the 1970s where the staff had to, literally, hose down the sofas from all the sex on them from the night before. Big celebrity names went there and Disco was the rage. So, here we go....
1. YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR HAT ON SUNG BY TOM JONES- 1997
This is a song from 1972, written by Randy Newman, who wanted to create a song that just seemed outlandish. It was made famous by Joe Cocker, (what an apt last name) but I went with Tom Jones who recorded this version for the film, “ The Full Monty”. I thought it was a good version since so many women threw their underwear at him when Tom Tom sang.
2. YOU SEXY THING BY HOT CHOCOLATE-1975
I remember this song back in the day and thought it funny and now, I I still find it funny but a good song to dance to. It was written by the lead singer, Errol Brown and bassist, Tony Wilson and became a great song to strip to not that I ever did. This was also in the very funny movie, “ The Full Monty.”
3. LOVE, LOVE TO LOVE YOU BABY SUNG BY DONNA SUMMER-1975
This was written by Italian, Georgio Moroder and created a big sensation because it sounds like Donna is having a very good time with herself. I decided on the shortened version but the 17 minute version became very famous.
I could have gone in so many different directions but the 70s Disco Era called to me.
Which songs do you think of when you think of Sex?
