Saturday morning. Blizzard outside. Kids out of school. Not that I have any, but I’m thinking of the greater society. Under these circumstances, let’s pull out an old song, a controversial one that made the “Filthy Fifteen” list of songs receiving parents’ disapproval.
This one was about masturbation. Any adult knew it as soon as they understood the lyrics. But its upbeat tempo made it a terrific dance tune. Commercial radio loved it; the young folks loved it.
The video has that goofy early MTV vibe going – perfect for a Saturday. You may not know all the words but you can recognize enough to sing along and mumble the rest. Direct from 1984 via the Intertubes and You Tube, Cyndi Lauper with ‘She Bop’.
