Reading _Hot Stuff_ again

Watching the YouTube video for Sylvester's 1978 "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" is a dozen different kinds of awesome.

ETA: "Grace Jones turned decisively mannish as she instructed her lover in the not-so-fine points of anal sex to "pull up to my bumper baby / in your long back limousine.""

Here's what wikipedia has to say on the subject:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pull_Up_to_the_Bumper

which points in turn to:

http://news.qthemusic.com/2008/12/grace_jones_laughs_off_bumper.html

"And, perhaps predictably, the star was asked about the meaning behind her top 20 hit which includes the line “grease it/spray it/let me lubricate it” which is widely thought to be all about anal sex.

But Jones, aged 60, laughed off the idea. “I don’t think it’s necessarily about that. I think it means whatever you want it to. Because I kind of like the doggy position myself, but that doesn’t mean it’s going up me arse.”"

I don't hear anything in the lyrics to distinguish between doggy p-v, anal, or even http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intercrural_sex, but I can be kinda blind to some metaphors.

ETAYA: Wow. I don't think I have ever heard "Come Again" by the Au Pairs. It's kind of hard to listen to without tensing up. And not in a good way. It is indeed clever, but I'm not sure that's why I listen to music. Yeesh.
