Longest running comment thread on Rocket Jones

Back in April I put up a little quickie post about stripper music and the comments keep trickling in. Never one to leave off beating a dead horse, here's what we've got so far:

Feel Like Making Love - Bad Company
South City Midnight Lady - Doobie Brothers
Dreadlock Holiday - 10cc
Sharp Dressed Man -ZZTop
Come Together -The Beatles
Feel Like a Woman -Shania Twain
Welcome to Jungle - Guns N' Roses
Cut the Cake - Average White Band
Love to Love You Baby -Donna Summer
Crazy On You - Heart
Closer - Nine Inch Nails (this one was mentioned several times)
Indus - Dead Can Dance
Frankenstein - Edgar Winter Group
Rocket Queen - Guns N' Roses
Oh Bondage, Up Yours! - X-Ray Spex
The Roars Of The Masses Could Be Farts - the Minutemen.

These next few are jokes. I hope. I don't know if my universe is big enough to contain a place where these might be used:
Polka Your Brains Out - Weird Al
The William Tell Overture
Amazing Grace (with real pipes)
Don't Worry, Be Happy - Bobby Ferrin

Back to seriousness:
Sex Shooter - Apollonia 6
Nasty Girl - Vanity 6
Peach - the Neptunes
Smoking in the Boys Room - Motley Crue (I didn't know they did a cover of this, I remember the original by Brownsville Station)
Hot for Teacher - Van Halen
Cream - Prince
I Touch Myself - the Divinyls
What Kind of Love Are You On - Aerosmith
Cherry Pie - Warrant
Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard
Lick- from the movie XXX soundtrack
Sex On Wheels (remix) - Thrill Kill Cult
Erotic City - Prince
Toxic - Britney Spears
I'm Gonna Crawl - Led Zepplin (except for the intro)
Porcelain - Moby
Y'all Wanna A Single - Korn
"i like dancing to mairlyn manson songs the best"
Possum Kingdom - The Toadies
Engel - Rammstein
Stripped - Rammstein
Fire - Ohio Players (this suggestion gets a hearty "Hell Yeah" from me!)
You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC
Emotions in Motion - Billy Squier
Dr Feelgood - Motley Crue
Slow Ride - Foghat
The Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin
Britney Spears - Breathe On Me
Personal Jesus - Depeche Mode
Come Together - Aerosmith (cover)
Darling Nikki - Prince
Lap Dance - Nerd

I've stripped out most of the commentary (no pun intended), which alone is worth a quick read. We've heard from guys and ladies, both spectators and dancers, and this is nice mix of music, suitable for all occasions. Assuming of course, that having a pole dancing lovely as the entertainment is suitable for the occasion. As far as I'm concerned, they always are.

So I'll ask again, what music have you seen that really worked? What music would you like to see used?

Even better, script a five song "set" and post it in the comments.

Hmmm. Might be nice to see some gal bring the Beach Boys' Surf's Up to life.

Yes. That would be nice!

I cannot believe any stripper song list would not include Joe Cocker's "you can leave your hat on".

Good choice hrod!

I have many self-made (self-help?) CDs that I like to call the "F-me" series -- f-me now, hard, slow, etc.

But I can talk stripper music, having been in quite a number of titty bars (girls appreciate hot girls too!). To this day, when I hear the following songs on the radio, I am transported back to Club Edison in Pittsburgh:

1. Cinnamon Girl -- Type O Negative
2. Alive -- Godsmack
3. From Your Mouth -- God Lives Underwater
4. Control -- Puddle of Mudd
5. Sex Type Thing -- Stone Temple Pilots

Damn. I need to go change my undies. ;)

I agree with hrod. I can't believe anyone could listen to You Can Leave Your Hat On and not want to take their clothes off!

And now a list from someone who was in the business :)
Here were the ones that worked best for me:
Cherry Pie- Warrant
Addicted to Love- Robert Palmer (good for pole work)
Born to Raise Hell- Motorhead
Are You Ready For the Sex Girls- Gleaming Spires
and of course
You Can Leave Your Hat On- Tom Jones

Start with tradition
David Rose - The Stripper

TonLoc - Wild Thing
Aerosmith - Sweet Emotion
Kiss - Take it off

And to finish it off with style
Alannah Myles - Black Velvet

From a girl these songs make me feel like dancing sexy;

Cherry Pie - Warrant
Milkshake - Kelis
Breathe On Me - Britney Spears
Stronger - Britney Spears
I Wanna Be Bad - Willa Ford
Ashlee Simpson - LaLa
Closer - NIN (agreed)
Ruberneckin' - Elvis the Paul Oakenfold remix

There's so many more but those are my favorites I guess. Thanks for the list, though. Some of these were duggested already anyways, though.

Oh and I forgot "Sexual" by Amber and "Behind Every Good Woman" by Tracy Bonham

I can't believe no one has even mentioned ZZ Top. Sure they're old farts now, but this whole scene was their image as a band. "La Grange" is probably their best stripper song.

Posted by: GT at September 13, 2005 11:14 PM

Great. After I've already posted I see ZZ Top at the beginning of the thread...I'm an idiot

Posted by: GT at September 13, 2005 11:17 PM

This one wasn't mentioned but deserves to be: For me this song is best for a hot lap dance.

"She Rides" - Danzig
