I Wanna Sex Wake You Up

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.

  1. I never understood that lyric either. I'm pretty sure if he or I fell asleep during sex, it would be the first and last time he ever sexxed me up...

  2. Psh....that...totally happens...like all the time.

    Also, obviously suits that are all...plum?...are the epitome of virility. Hammer pants only ratchet things up when on MC Hammer.

  3. what's a blogger, 20 years from now, going to say about their favorite song?

    i was listening to "Blah Blah Blah" the other day...when I started really listening to the lyrics, specifically: "Come put a little love in my glove box. I wanna dance with no pants on, holla"

    at least C.M.B, and other music like theirs, was a little innocent and cutesy about 'it'.

    i know i deviated from the overall sentiment of your post, but i just had to *ahem* vent.

  4. Haha - I don't think I ever actually listened to the lyrics. I kind of miss slow dancing. It's not the same anymore. Remember you couldn't even look at each other or talk to each other? I might bust out my junior high graduation dance video tonight. Thanks for this.

  5. Question....did the boy with the overalls have at least one strap down or were both buckled?

  6. How is it that I don't remember the guy wearing the black hat? Ahh, he must've been faded out by the sheer awesomeness of the Geddy Lee look alike and the guy w/ the porno stache.

  9. Oh. My. God. I used to always feel so dirty listening to that song, but I loved it!! God those guys are ugly.

  10. I always thought that Nancy McKeon looked like Nancy McKeon with a moustache.

  11. Oh I remember that song....but never really listened to the lyrics....I love that!!!

  12. oh yes... sex that makes you fall asleep is top notch lol!
    maybe it's like chinese food that is so good you're hungry in an hour?
    I tried.... lol

  13. Maybe they're describing zombie sex????

  14. I always thought it said, "We can do it 'til we won't wake up", which is equally disturbing, but makes a little more sense I suppose.

  15. Then there is always my "personal favorite" part of the song...."Making love until we drown."
    Yet, I never remembered them singing about being in a pool. Thanks for the flashback, it was fun!

  16. Idk... I think I'd be rather concerned if someone fell asleep while I was having sex with them. I'd probably call 911. D=

  17. ah memory lane and slow-dancing to Brian Adams songs with boys with rat tails.

    i wanna go back to the 4th grade now, and drag out my dusty mixed tapes.

  18. When I was 10, this band was my favorite. I actually had posters of them on my wall, ripped from those Teen mags, of course. I had the same tough problem between the two guys, but I eventually settled on the guy with the mustache because of his Spanish part in "I Adore Me Amour", which was my favorite song on the tape. I can still hear him saying something like (and I don't claim to know Spanish) "Te quero mucho baby, te quero mucho" and my young heart melted. Now, you have inspired me to admit this, one of my darkest secrets. Thank you Una. You are my hero. :)

  19. I never caught that either. I don't think I've ever sexed anyone up while asleep. Maybe he is a narcaleptic.

    How funny that schools used to play a song like that for adolecents to slow dance to. Great abstinence education huh?

  20. I always thought that lyric was stupid too! I remember pointing out its lack of logic to my school friends but they didn't see a problem with it.

    Perhaps they assumed CMB were referring to dream sex, in which case you actually do "do it till you wake up." Have you considered this possibility?

    I still have this album on cassette. I can't bring myself to throw it out... I don't even have a cassette player any more!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Maybe it's just not clearly phrased. Maybe they mean to reference that wonderful kind of wake up sex where your partner just starts waking you up with kisses and fingertips...

    That's what I'd like to think, anyway, cause that's totally how I want to wake up tomorrow.

  23. All the Color Me Bad guys went to high school 2 blocks from where I work and like half the people I work w/ went to high school w/ them (6 degrees of separation, I guess) Anyway, they are bankrupt and homeless now. It's quite tragic. But yeah, that is still totally my jam (wait, did I say jam?)

  24. I saw Nancy at the bank once, during the height of their fame. I was at the drive thru window and he walked past my car, very exciting! I played it cool. I also saw CMB open for Paula Abdul at Jones Beach Theater. I have to say, it has a place on my list of "most embarrassing concerts I've gone to on a date." 2nd only to Michael Bolton!

    Also ROTFLMFAO @ Trooper Thorn!! Dude, that shit was flippin' hilarious!!!!!!

    @ Angie Dawn, I think the more pertinent question is: how on Earth WOULDN'T you slow dance to that song?!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Overalls and a flat top! Why can't we go back to those days! lol
