|Ah, the second 'remix' CD single|
However, this is called 23rd Track, not 34th Track, so we settle with reality, not fiction.
I, yet again, fall back to the 90's - can't remember the year. Just remember the great tune....
What? You don't?
If that bass line doesn't end up sampled in the next 5 years, I'm a dutchman. Talk about instant classic. Cymbal heavy percussion, with some great Chili Pepper style guitar in the background, but it's the chorus that breaks it through into something worth owning. And like all great 'classic rock' tunes, it starts with the chorus. Don't believe me? I can't seem to find it, but there was a great interview with Dave Grohl talking to Kyle Gas of Tenacious D - and he just lists the 'classic rock' tunes that start with the chorus - hundreds of them. In short - If you want a hit - start with the chorus.
When it comes back in after her reverb heavy vocals on the verse, the music mellows out to a silence and her voice changes to a screaming shout to usher in the chorus again. Nice.
What about that video though? Only two people worth asking about 90's rock videos.... ROCK - indeed.
But what is the song all about?
Well - according to YouTube comments (and that is always a bad place to start...):
"In a nutshell, it's about a woman-a "sex addict"-who prowls the beach(and other places)looking for homeless guys to have sex with. The implication is that the woman is not-for unspecified reasons-able to find sufficient sex partners in "conventional" settings. She is looked upon with some measure(!) of disdain by her partners, yet they CONTINUE to return to her bed again and again("You always came back for MORE!")."
The single was of the era when it was still worth buying on CD-single - why? Tons of great remixes from such greats as Roni Size, Dust Brothers and Monkey Mafia. Every one of them a genuine piece of work rather than the lazy generated ones of more recent times.
Does it remind me of times, people and places? Yes, but only of regret, stupidity and self loathing. So sod that. Great tune, great bassline - just a shame they couldn't make a decent album or career out of it.
