Wa wa wa wa wa...Wha?

Over on Clif's blog, he mentioned April Stevens and her song "Teach Me, Tiger," which he likened to auditory pornography. I have learned that, when the song came out in 1959, it caused an uproar for its sexual suggestiveness.

Of course, I had to see what all the fuss was about. I give you ... "Teach Me, Tiger":

Now, compared to "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot or "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails or any number of WAY MORE SUGGESTIVE SONGS of the past ten or twenty years, this isn't really all that scandalous. But I can imagine that back in the day, "Teach Me, Tiger" was quite the controversy.

Thanks for finding April's hot wax. (That's what we old time deejays called it) I spent far too much time looking for it on a You tube and never did locate it.
