Stripper Music

According to the news last night, pole dancing is the newest fitness fad for ladies. So be it, who am I to argue? Now just on the off chance that some wonderful lady wants to pole dance for me, here's a few songs I'd love to hear during the show:

Feel Like Making Love - Bad Company
South City Midnight Lady - Doobie Brothers
Dreadlock Holiday - 10cc

C'mon folks, let's hear from the peanut gallery. Guys, what would you want to hear? Ladies, what songs would inspire you to give your best performance?

(6/8/2005) Update: Besides the great suggestions still trickling in in the comments, I've collected a lot of them into one long list of "Favorite Stripper Music". Enjoy, feel free to add to the list via the comments, and most of all, thanks!

(8/22/2005) Update: Up until now, when someone asked about where to find pole dancing lessons, all I could do was offer generic advice about where to look in their local areas, and to wish them luck.

Until now.

This first link, A Pole Lot of Fun, looks to be a 'party' style setup, similar to the way Tupperware used to work.

We bring the pole, you bring the friends and together we create a magical night of fun, laughter, and support.

Follow that link above and see if there's someone local to you.

This link, PoleStars, is based in the UK and Australia. It looks like this is more of the traditional class instruction on the art of pole dancing and strip tease.

Both sites offer equipment and clothing too. If you try either of these, or something else you've found in your area, drop by and leave a comment to let everyone know how it went.

Category: Square Pegs

Sharp Dressed Man -ZZTop
Come Together -The Beatles
Feel Like a Woman -Shania Twain (Really, seen it done)

Now, when Mamamontezz comes with me, her favorite stripper songs are Welcome to Jungle (who knows who did that one), Cut the Cake -Average White Band, and Love to Love You Baby -Donna Summer (that can be an almost religious experience with the right girl).

Yep, it's great having a wife/blog-mama who will go out to the tittie bar once in a while.

"Crazy On You" by Heart.

Posted by: Tuning Spork at April 3, 2004 05:05 PM

Can a female interject...? ;-)

Actually, the songs that make me want to grind my hips are: "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails (gotta love it when the main chorus includes the line "I Wanna F**k You Like An Animal"), and Indus", by Dead Can Dance. Indus is a very asp-slithering-among-the-alabaster-halls sort of song...

My Mom used to be a titty dancer waaaaay back when and her favorite song to shake it to was "Frankenstein". (Was that the Allman Brothers...? I forget.) As in, the whole friggin' song. She'd make up to $1000 a night because no-one could believe anyone had the stamina to pole-dance for that long...


Posted by: Denita TwoDragons at April 4, 2004 12:52 PM

"Frankenstein" was by the Edgar Winter Group. Album was "They Only Come Out At Night". Great disc, the entire thing, Ronny Montrose played lead I believe.

Posted by: Ted at April 4, 2004 02:15 PM

Historically speaking, I'm a big, big fan of poledances to "Rocket Queen" by Guns & Roses, though now that I'm older and more easily bored I wouldn't object to an amusing juxtaposition of politics and sex with something like "Oh Bondage, Up Yours!" by X-Ray Spex or "The Roars Of The Masses Could Be Farts" by the Minutemen. For that matter, why don't more people try to poledance to hardcore? That'd be fun!

Posted by: Johno at April 5, 2004 10:53 AM

I'm with Denita on "Closer"...LOVE that one.

Posted by: Jennifer at April 5, 2004 11:48 AM

"Polka Your Brains Out" by Weird Al

The William Tell Overture

Amazing Grace (with real pipes)

"Don't Worry, Be Happy"

Posted by: Phelps at April 5, 2004 07:04 PM

Maybe I'm a leftback 80's geek, but I love "Sex Shooter" by Apollonia 6 and "Nasty Girl" by Vanity 6

Posted by: Mare at April 21, 2004 12:25 PM

the song "Peach" by the Neptunes, awesome jam

Posted by: no name at May 22, 2004 11:35 AM

How bout having a whole teacher striptease thing. Wear a little teacher outfit and dance to "Smoking in the Boys Room" by Motely Crue and "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen. Now that is what I would do!

Posted by: LouLa at June 28, 2004 12:52 PM

I would have to say "Cream" by Prince... or "I Touch Myself" by the Divinyls

Posted by: Ashley at June 28, 2004 12:57 PM

what kind of love are you on - aerosmith

Posted by: bob at October 14, 2004 01:05 AM

"Cherry Pie" by Warrant is an awesome stripper song!

Posted by: Kyle at October 20, 2004 10:22 PM

Gotta love, pour some sugar on me by Def Leppard & Lick- from the movie XXX soundtrack- Great Stuff

Posted by: Michi at December 2, 2004 05:57 PM

you gotta love "sex on wheels (remix) by thrill kill cult!!!

Posted by: lindz at December 3, 2004 07:28 PM

Erotic City = Prince. . a classic strippers song.

Posted by: Badass at December 4, 2004 12:10 AM

"Toxic" by Britney Spears. That's a great song for pole dancing. ;)

Posted by: Alielle at December 8, 2004 10:54 PM

I'm gonna craw by led zepplin is good (except for the intro). Porcelain by moby is good (depending on the club).
If you've got the pole dancing skills "yall wanna a single" by korn is good- but you have to be pole dancing to pull it off! Also i like dancing to mairlyn manson songs the best (and yes, i AM a dancer) :)

Posted by: Berlin at December 11, 2004 03:15 AM

"Possum Kingdom" by The Toadies. Good stuff!

Posted by: T2B at December 22, 2004 05:00 PM

"Engel" and "Stripped" by Rammstein

Posted by: typer100 at December 23, 2004 09:46 PM

thanks to all of you that posted-- ive never stripped before, and i was looking for some ideas for a birthday present. so, thanks! ...and im sure my boyfriend thanks you too ;)

Posted by: dothedew at December 25, 2004 12:00 PM

Hey Dothedew, where are you? I"m a former dancer and now I teach exotic and pole dancing in Quincy, MA, just for regular women who want to see what it's like to dance like a real stripper...and good songs everyone too! Gave me some good ideas for my classes!

Posted by: Wendy at December 31, 2004 04:18 PM

I would dance to Fire by Ohio Players! My boyfriend loves it!!!!

Posted by: Nikki at January 10, 2005 10:58 AM

I dance for my boyfriend on occassions and he loves it when I dance to Fire by Ohio Players! It sends him out of this world!

Posted by: Nikki at January 10, 2005 12:06 PM

This is from an observer point of view, but the all-time greatest stripper song is "You Shook Me All Night Long" by AC/DC. Nothing even comes close to its historical, visual, and economic impact. When strippers enter Stripper School, they play that song the very first day, and if you don't cut it, then they expel you on the spot. Hands down, it is simply the very best stripper song of all time, anywhere. I would even venture to say that under the right circumstances it would cause slightly intoxicated non-strippers to actually start stripping.

Second up might be a tie between "Emotions in Motion" by Billy Squier or "Dr Feelgood" by Motley Crue. Toss in a little Bad Company, "Slow Ride" by Foghat, and a few Prince-related sex disco/R&B hip-shakers, and you should have one hell of a mix tape.

Honorable mention: I was in Myrtle Beach years ago, and a blond danced to "The Battle of Evermore" by Led Zeppelin and blew my mind.

Posted by: Jim Schortz at January 12, 2005 11:25 AM

britney spears- breathe on me, and depeche mode- personal jesus. my specialties ;)

Posted by: T at January 13, 2005 05:35 PM

Gotta say these two are the ultimate:
Personal Jesus-Depeche Mode
They make me do things with parts of my body I didn't think i could do..

Posted by: Tricia at January 14, 2005 01:04 AM

hell yeah! all of these are great hits! i personally enjoy dancing to the aerosmith cover of "come together"

Posted by: roxy at January 27, 2005 06:48 AM

I have signed up for poledancing and striptease in New York. I am interested to find out what music they will use.

Posted by: Pisces at February 1, 2005 11:26 PM

Darling Nikki- Prince and LAP dance by NERD

Posted by: mikey at February 8, 2005 02:41 PM

When I was thirteen (!) I saw a stripper for the first time. I was with my Dad as he went into a Main Street bar in rural South Dakota, looking for one of my brothers. I don't think he realized I could see anything. (We were barely in the door, and didn't stay for more than twenty seconds.)

In that eternity of twenty seconds, I saw a blonde girl with sparkly green pants, dancing topless to Sugarloaf's Green Eyed Lady. I was completely embarrassed, and also completely hypnotized. Green Eyed Lady continues to bring back vivid memories, even thirty years later. I hear it, and I'm transported back to the dark smoky Peacock Bar in South Dakota, and I'm thirteen, and I'm hypnotized.

Posted by: Keith at February 23, 2005 07:32 PM

I used to be a stripper as well- tons of fun. My fav songs were

Metallica- Enter Sandman (that one is awesome-upbeat great if you are a good dancer)
Metallica- No Leaf Clover
Metallica- Sad but true
KORN- ADIDAS =) good one

As you can tell I like the upbeat rock stuff- it gets um going and gives you something good to dance to.

Posted by: cali at March 4, 2005 02:36 PM

I am a stripper and a lot of you have some good songs listed on here, I have already used britney spears breathe on me... But some other good songs to use that I get really into is christina aguilera's - Get mine get yours, Britney Spears - Toch of my hand, Montell Jordan's Lets Ride and a very sexual song by Janet jackson - would you mind. Also some great stripper music is over seas that most america hasnt heard, European rave music... Muah...

Posted by: Crissy at March 16, 2005 02:37 PM

I saw a stripper dance with "Tell Him", the version of Celine Dion and Barbara Streisand and it was awesome.

Posted by: joey at March 20, 2005 05:12 AM

Gotta love Kid Rock - I'll f**ck you blind Bitch.
Really pumps the crowd up.

Posted by: Jojo at March 31, 2005 08:56 PM

Posted by: paul at April 12, 2005 07:50 PM

Paula Cole's "Feelin' Love", Kenny Wayne Sheppherd's "Blue On Black" and also agree that "Closer" by NIN

Posted by: David at April 17, 2005 04:01 PM

Hey Peeps,
Yeah I'm a Strip Club DJ Too, Thanks for all the great songs. I can say definitively that Breathe on Me is a song I can play for just about ANYONE, even the hardcore Hip Hop and Rap girls (90% of the girls these days) Allow me to make a few more suggestions:

Music Instructor - Technical Lover (if you can find it, another universally accepted SEXY song, especially with a good light show)

Nine Inch Nails - Sin (and just about any other song on Pretty Hate Machine, Sanctified etc...)

Sneaker Pimps - Bloodsport
Sublime - Caress Me Down

Led Zeppelin - Dazed and Confused
Scorpions - The Zoo
(it's the base lines that really make the last 2 work)

Satisfaction/In Da Club -Benny Bennass vs. 50 Cent (one of the few "vs" remixes I have ever heard that actually works)

Who Da Funk - Shiny Disco Balls (techno, but sexy techno)

Rob Zombie - Pussy Liquor (Upbeat and hardcore sexy in your face)

Lil Kim - I don't want dick tonight (a favorite of the girls)

Phil Collins - In the air tonight (ben liebrand mix) sexier than the original

Lil John and the Eastside Boys - Ooh na na nah
(the most blatant sex song ever)

504 Boyz - I Can Tell You Wanna f... - (maybe there is a tie here)

White Zombie - Grease Paint and Monkey Brains (for the S&M girls it has that kinda sound)

Brooks and Dunn - Rock My World Little Country Girl (Put a cowgirl outfit on for this one)

Neneh Cherry - Move With Me (Sultry and sexy)

Primal Scream - Some Velvet Morning

Well that ought to get you started... enjoy!!!

Posted by: Jonez at April 22, 2005 07:25 PM

Hi, This question is totally out in the left field, but i live around the Framingham area and would like to know if anyone knows if there is a pole dancing class around that area that i can join.

Many Thanks!!

Posted by: Terri at May 3, 2005 10:38 PM

In my club there isn't an hour that goes by without "Closer" NIN. But I love Seether's "Fine Again" and "Driven Under" That's sexy. Guys tend to like the Metallica sets, and "Getaway Car" by Audioslave. (off the new cd) AEROSMITH rocks!

Posted by: Ariel at May 7, 2005 12:00 AM

Well I was a bar tender at a strip club and some of my all time fav. sets included songs like: blood leading by concret blond, mouth by bush, change(house of flies) bye deftones, most of type o negatives music is good to dance to, i touch myself...the jack off jill version. nymphtmine by cradle of filth, coin operated boy by the deresden dolls for the right type of girl, and there are so many more that i could list but those are some of my favs.

Posted by: eclipse at May 13, 2005 03:32 PM

Depends on the guys in the club. But a favorite classic is a necessary must, so try Rod Stewart Tonight's The Night and don't forget the pretty French gown. Or Hall and Oates Man Eater is good to.

Posted by: janet at May 22, 2005 10:46 AM

I heard this great song in a strip club and have not been able to track it down! It is a techno/dance track...it seems like the name is "Triple x". I can only remember part of the lyrics, which I think goes, "... it's triple-x ... it's triple x" Can someone help me find the name of the band and the real name of this song? I love it! Thanks ;)

Posted by: Luvsiren at May 30, 2005 01:13 AM
