Top ten striptease songs

leave a comment »

Some while ago, when the opportunity arose to put them to good use, I realised I had rather few striptease songs sorted out. The very next day (my memories are rather foggy given circumstances, but it most likely was the next day, so we’ll work with that assumption) I set on a quest for the web’s favorite striptease songs. The results, however, were somewhat disappointing; mostly redundant and not as insightful as I had hoped. But plowing through them I also found some good (enough) ones, and managed to collect sufficient songs to tire out even some of the most dedicated strippers out there (not that that would be the purpose of the whole thing).

Stumbling over the sorted-out-music folder and running into them again, I decided to share them with the world, if only to spare other don quixotesque music fans out there from the pain of having to go thorough endless pages of search results only to find (mostly) the folowing songs listed over and over.

Top ten strip songs

Note: the order is mostly a matter of personal taste & current state of mind. The purpose is to provide you with a list of good striptease songs, rather than to make statements about the songs’ quality when compared to one another, as I find judging taste to be pointless.

#10. Kylie Minogue – Chocolate [watch]
Not much surprise in Kylie showing up in this list, now is there?

#9. Tina Turner – Private Dancer [watch]
Striptease 101.

#8. Pussycat Dolls & Busta Rhymes – Don’t Cha [watch]
Excellent rythm; rap & hip hop fans will appreciate it.

#7. Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar on Me [watch]

#6. Right Said Fred – I’m Too Sexy [watch]
Funny rather than sexy, but still a good song to drop clothes to.

#5. Joe Cocker – You Can Leave Your Hat On [watch]
Synonymous with “striptease song”; would be higher in the top if it weren’t so damn everywhere.

#4. Alannah Myles – Black Velvet [watch]
Another classic, slower & more sensual than most in this top.

#3. Prince – Cream [watch]
I’m not that much into Prince, but this song is by far among the best strip songs I’ve heard so far.

#2. Patricia Kaas – Mademoiselle chante le blues [watch]
French strip song. ’nuff said.

#1. En Vogue – Beat of Love [listen]
The bass drum rythm on this song is simply amazing, earning it a #1.

Bonus song

Instrumental music is excellent for striptease, and one of the best ones at that is the theme song from A Shot in the Dark (1964; the second Pink Panther movie, featuring Peter Sellers – a “dark” comedy which you may also enjoy) by Henry Mancini. If you need further proof, check out Ursula Martinez’ Hanky Panky (strip) show. The sax, as on Mademoiselle chante le blues, is excellent. On the instrumental topic, half funny-half sexy is also The Stripper from Joe Loss.

Runners up

As with most tops, some runners up got left out. In alphabetical order:

  • Ella Fitzgerald – I Just Wanna Make Love to You
  • Firefox – Sex Shooter
  • Ginuwine – Pony
  • Lovage – Sex (I’m A)
  • Paula Cole – Feelin’ Love
  • Queen – Fat Bottomed Girls
  • Sam Brown – Stop
  • Santana & Rob Thomas – Smooth
  • Shaggy – Hey Sexy Lady
  • The Sugababes – Push the Button
  • Tom Jones – Sex Bomb
  • Tom Jones – You Don’t Have to Be Rich
  • Touch & Go – Tango in Harlem
  • Zuchero – Baila Sexy Thing

You can sample most of them on imeem.com [later edit: imeem is now defunct; changed links to point to Google video searches], on youtube or simply googling/yahoo(ing?) for them.
