‘Sexy Girls Sing Sexy Songs’ screams the cover of this CD, and look hard at the track list and you’ll note it contains just what it boasts on the tin. But for those expecting an hour plus of bump ‘n’ grind from the kind of ladies that your mother warned you about, disappointment may be imminent.
This compilation includes 25 tracks from classy dames who like to leave a little to the imagination, as they tease their men with innuendo, subtle put downs and occasional ridicule – but will never come across explicitly or “talk dirty”.
And therein lies the charm and attraction in these songs and the way they are performed. As Marilyn, Brigitte and Rita are more often than not associated with their sex appeal and could sing virtually anything and make it sound sexy (lest we forget Ms. Monroe’s near orgasmic version of ‘Happy Birthday’ when sung to her old flame John F. Kennedy) other, less well known names are equally as “naughty” when they want to be.
So please say it one time for the girls who know how to get their man, keep their man and drive their man wild as they dance in the old fashioned way.
