So I was listening to "I Wanna Sex You Up" on my iPod the other day while walking to the bank (yeah, I have Color Me Badd's C.M.B album. SHUT UP IT IS AWESOME. I love Color Me Badd, I just can't decide who was my favorite: the one who looked like Tilda Swinton with a Jheri Curl or the one who looked like Nancy McKeon with a mustache.)
Anyway, it took me back to sixth grade, when I once slow-danced to the song with a boy—at least six inches shorter than I—who was wearing overalls and had a flat-top. I was getting lost in my adolescent reverie when I started really listening to the lyrics, specifically:
Girl you make me feel real good,
We can do it till we both wake up
You know the sex is good when you fall asleep doing it. And I thought Hammer pants were supposed to increase virility. Damn.
