Bad Songs #6

A while back, I watched the John Waters movie, A Dirty Shame, and was struck by the soundtrack which contained extremely bawdy music from the 1950s and 60s.  I mean these songs weren't even subtle.  You hear stories about how "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by The Beatles was scandalous - and yet here's these songs from ten years earlier which would make Barry White blush.... okay, maybe not, but you get my point.

Anyway, I soon discovered there was quite a market for dirty music back in the day - it just wasn't played on the radio.  All of the ones I uncovered were pretty awful - obviously not meant to be appreciated for their musicianship as their ability to turn a risque phrase and lay it between the lines.

Faye Richmonde stands out for me because she seemed to be pretty prolific and especially dirty. Her 1957 album My Pussy Belongs to Daddy pretty much says it all. I had to censor the cover to keep things PG around here. You can find the uncensored pretty easily in a Google search.

For your listening displeasure, here's "Tony's Got Hot Nuts".

For those of you who like this sort of adult oriented kitsch, here's a link to the entire album zip file. Enjoy!


  1. Thanks for posting this classic record. I'm reminded of the bawdy songs of Elsa Lanchester (she of 'Bride of Frankenstein' fame):


  2. Wow--those are BARELY double entendres.....! Speaking of less than stellar albums: Do you recall posting the cover of an album called "Music for Big Dame Hunters," featuring a spectacular photo of Irish McCalla? Well, you can't get the album cover....but believe it or don't, Amazon will SELL YOU all the "songs" off that album. OY!
