I’m putting together a CD or two for the strippers to get down to at a party. I have the usuals…Natural One, Closer, Girls, Girls, Girls…gimme some more.
Hot for Teacher
Perfect Gentleman by Wyclef Jean
Stroke It by Clarence Carter
Actually, don’t strippers usually bring their own music? It would seem they’ll dance best to music they know and like. Did you ask them?
All-time #1 stripper song: Jamie’s Cryin’.
Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
Divinyls-I Touch Myself
Well, the first bachelor party, they did. The second, they didn’t. I just want to be prepared. And no, I don’t remember what songs they played…other things going on…
Loreena McKennitt has a lot of good stripper songs. Kind of Middle Eastern. “Marco Polo” is a good one.
Madonna: Candy Perfume Girl
Tommy James & The Shondells - Crimson and Clover
DJ Krush and Deborah Anderson - Skin Against Skin (this is on the La Femme Nikita soundtrack)
That’s all I can think of right now.
Bloodhound Gang-A lap dance is so much better when the stripper is crying
Don’t forget the David Rose classic The Stripper.
“Sex and Candy” - Marcy Playground.
You Can Leave Your Hat On. The Joe Cocker version is best.
“Kiss” - by Prince
Godsmack - Voodoo.
I don’t care too much for the song, but it works perfectly for stripping, I’m told.
For some reason, Here Comes the Rain Again by the Eurythmics always seemed like a good stripper song to me. Very sultry, smoky, with a seductive beat.
Now that’s just sick!!!
Black Velveteen - Lenny Kravitz
When Worlds Collide - Powerman 5000
Ozzy Ozbourne - No More Tears
If some 70’s funk isn’t out of the question, “Fire,” “Skin Tight,” and/or “Love Rollercoaster,” all by the The Ohio Players. (Come to think of it, I wouldn’t be surprised if their big album was inspired at least in part by going to strippers.)
The Happy Mondays made big, stupid, beat-happy party music: “Step On,” “Kinky Afro,” “Mad Cyril,” “Hallelujah (club mix),” etc…
The best single stand-alone track I can think of would have to be “Unfinished Sympathy” by Massive Attack. I can’t imagine this going wrong with either the dancer(s) or audience.
Great for a tease by title only: “Totally Nude” by Talking Heads. Not a bad song, but not great stripper fare, either.
Jane Russell singing “Ain’t There Anyone Here for Love?” from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
Hee. Lord… hee. You do know that song is about killing a stripper/escort, don’t you?
Or did I get whooshed? Wouldn’t be the first time, I’m afraid.
Trust Eve to try and class up the joint.
Woman, we want strippers and poles and Motley Crue and beer. You keep that classy stuff to yourself before people start gettin’ ideas.
