Well, it's Friday and you know what that means. Yes, my Oriental manservant Hop-Sing and I are off to a prayer retreat with Republican presidential cadidate Alan Keyes, a man who absolutely, positively is not
batshit insane, so our lives will probably not be in jeopardy. Nevertheless, posting by moi will be necessarily sporadic for a while while we find out for sure.
But in my absence, here's a fun project for you all to contemplate:
All-Time Pop/Rock Female Sex Object
You know -- the cutest, the hottest, the most historically significant, the one that you most wanted to boink. However you define it, either solo artist or in a band.
My carefully considered Top Ten:
10. The Duchess (Bo Diddley's gorgeous sister)
Note: She's the one with the guitar.
9. Joan Jett
I would so switch teams for that woman.
8. Kim Wilde
Those lips! Those eyes! Those cheekbones!!!
7. Patti Smith
Around the time this clip was made, Patti famously told a magazine that she'd actually jerked off to her album cover, just to see what it would be like for her fans. I find that...intriguing.
6. Marianne Faithfull
5. Grace Slick
4. Courtney Love
Hey, what can I tell you -- as NYMary put it, I like 'em disheveled.
3. Chrissie Hynde
Look in the dictionary under "fiercely erotic" and there's a picture of her.
...and my number one all-time rock female sex object is....
1. Ronnie Spector!!!
Ah, Ronnie. Has there ever been a sexier video for a crappy song by a doughy white guy who gets upstaged by his female guest star? Seriously -- that silhouetted wiggle, that cigarette being crushed by the high heel, that first moment when she sings "Be my little baby...." God, I love that woman.
Okay -- who are your faves?
