Let’s Talk About Sex Baby – Three amazing songs about sex you might not have heard.

Jean-Pierre Mirouze – Sexopolis

 

Let’s kick things with a rare French treat. Jean-Pierre’s ‘Sexopolis’ is four minutes and forty two seconds of pure unadulterated summer lovin’. Written by the independent filmmaker who was a veteran of many Gainsbourg sessions, ‘Sexopolis’ was recorded in 1968 but still sounds as seductive as ever with its sun kissed organs and dramatic strings. Rare groove never sounded so good.

Hot 8 Brass Band – Sexual Healing

 

Ok, so this one’s not so much sexy as it is clumsy, sounding a bit like the soundtrack to a teenage boy fumbling around with bra straps. Still, it’s an extremely clever and hugely entertaining cover of the Marvin Gaye classic originally recorded in 1982 to feature on the seminal album ‘Midnight Love’. One for the eternal fluorescent adolescents we suppose.

Betty Davis – Anti Love Song

 

Warning: this Betty Davis track may induce extreme sexual frustration. To our knowledge, never has a woman sounded so genuinely pent up with sexual desire on record. It’s no surprise that Miles Davis second wife managed to seduce so-so guitarist Jimi Hendrix, and with lyrics like this, we reckon she could probably  seduce just about any red blooded man on the planet. We salute you Betty.
