This time around it is the sex sells edition. Yes, I am a healthy male that thinks the woman’s body is a beautiful work of art. So with that in mind you will not be seeing the album cover for Hand in Glove by the Smiths. When I thought up this post it was based on a couple album covers and the idea grew from there. Then I thought I would wax eloquent on each album cover but once I started to put those words down I realized what’s up with this pervert?
Instead I think I will just post the album cover and let you add your own thoughts and memories. After all some of these albums came out when we were young and discovering what we thought was sexy or not. I think as an American I was raised like so many of us as being sexually conservative and not encouraged to think sexually, as this was bad. I eventually figured it out.
The Slits “Cut”
I’ve never understood why men can go shirtless but women can not. This may be the easiest way to see an unjust male-run world. If anyone should have a shirt on, it is men. It’s dirty right? I mean dirt and water is mud and that is what the Slits are covered in on their debut album. These were very interesting women in the time of male dominated punk rock. Viv Albertine is especially fascinating and has written a memoir which is worth your time. The music still sounds great.
Come back and see what is next on the list.
