Bingo! At first while watching the video I thought maybe it was a spoof of the real thing.

While thinking about Van Halen's cover of "You Really Got Me," I asked myself what female singers have made songs that are equivalently carnal, since it often seems as if most love/lust songs are by men. I came up with three so far: Shakira's "Shewolf" (which I hate) and the following two, which I like. So now I'm listening to these:

Blondie - In the Flesh
Sweet but sensual at the same time.

Divinyls - I touch myself
Very blatant. Perhaps a good female counterpart to Frankie Goes to Hollywood's infamous, "Relax (Don't do it)" which I remember seeing in concert in Germany.

So which is better, "I touch myself" or "Relax (Don't do it)?" My vote goes to the Divinyls because she is a little more holistic in her approach to desire.

Frankie Goes to Hollywood - Relax (Don't do it)
