Cyndi Lauper precursored this hidden agenda back in 1984. How many people can say their fave released a top 5 hit about touching yourself? “She Bop” was one of the four breakout hits from her superstar making album She's So Unusual.
The song features iconic lines “I see them every night in tight blue jeans / In the pages of a Blue Boy magazine”. Blue Boy was a gay pornograhic in case your knowledge only extends to Playboy. The song even addresses technique “Do I want to go out with a lion's roar? / Or go south and get me some more”
“She Bop” had the disctinction of being marked as one of the “Filthy 15” songs. The songs used to pioneer the creation of the parental advisory sticker. Prince, Madonna, and AC/DC all had the honor of being put down as the worst of the nation.
Although, I never will quite understand the railing against masturbation. Shouldn't you be happy? Your daughter's home alone using her shower head instead of having Axl Rose teach her the proper use of contraception. Either way “She Bop” was a defining hit and the anthem for everyone trying to get it done for themselves.
