Number 892 - Berlin

Number 892


Sex (Im a...)


Genre:New Wave
What a lot of hoo ha back in '82 about this song! Banned on most radio stations for its "sexual theme". Imagine the horror they would face today by their standards. Incredible really, how today's music is pretty close enough to pornography, especially in the "Rap" genre.

"Their first significant hit was the controversial synth-driven "Sex (I'm A...)" (1982), which was banned by some radio stations due to its graphic lyrics, but it was "Take My Breath Away" (from the movie Top Gun) that became their best-selling single in 1986. They had two other hits: "The Metro", which was later covered by System of a Down, Alkaline Trio, and Sleepthief; and "No More Words", who's subsequent video saw Terri Nunn and bandmates re-enact a Bonnie and Clyde style car chase and shoot-out."
