Musical Musings

Hey all,

As you may have noticed that I haven't posted much lately.

I am still a bit - stuck.

I could blame it on a bunch of things: meds, it's hot out, I'm peri-menopausal, not enough sleep; all of the above. It really doesn't mater why, but the simple fact is my brain is just - stuck.

Every time I sit down to write something here on this blog, I can't think of a damned thing to write about. There are a few Meme's out there I could steal, but I don't feel like it.

I'm just kind of cranky and whiney. (whiny? sp?) whatever

So...let's SEX it up a bit shall we? Maybe that will get me motivated!

Some months ago, I did a comparison between one song performed by different artists. The original post is here if you are so inclined.

This week I want to follow along those same lines and ask you which one of these versions of this same song do you think is sexier.

The song: Bang! Bang! (no double entendre there!)

Written by Sonny Bono for his lovely wife Cher!

It became her biggest hit during the 60's! She later re-recorded a more rock version starring Richie Sambora on the guitar and it definitely took it up a few notches!

I found this clip on YouTube and I guess it's one of her many farewell performances she may have done at one of the Casino's somewhere in Vegas. Who the heck knows. But there is smoke and dancers and crazy lights and of course her spider webbed outfit that leaves very little to the imagination.

Pretty hot eh?

Next up we have no other than Nancy Sinatra again!

She recorded this song in the 60's as well, but she slowed the tempo and delivered it with a more dramatic flair. There she is in her little pink fringey dress and her pink go-go boots seductively singing this song while posing ever so casually on the floor.

What was that ending all about?

OK, I have to admit - when you look at the videos Cher wins in the sexy department and Nancy looks kind of lame, but I definitely think Nancy sings it sexier!

Just my opinion!

Plus I love Nancy's version better because I'm a bit Kill Bill fan!

Anyhoo - have a fabulous weekend all. We're off to a wedding tomorrow with tropical storm Hana threatening to dampen the happy couple's big day.

The last time I attended a wedding where a hurricane/tropical storm was spinning off the coast was my own and well, that ended in disaster so I hope it's not a bad omen for these two because they really are a lovely young couple!

Peace all!

Hell no, Shazza! Cher is about as sexy as a bad stomach bug. Nancy looks so damned sultry. Oooooooooooooo … And I love the cute roll at the end.
Sigh …
Have a great weekend and a totally awesome wedding!

Honestly Shazza, I don't think I know exactly what sexy is. Neither of these women really "do it" for me.
I find women that don't really try as much to be sexier. Cher has had way too much tucked and lifted and, at least in the video, Sinatra can't even get up without "rolling off stage" because she was "posed" in a dress that prevented her from spreading her legs enough to stand without giving the world what Cher seems to readily give.
I say put on a damn pair of pants!

I know, I'm an old fart:D

Easy call here - anything Cher does is uninspiring. I guess butt cheeks can resurrect your career in your 50s. Note to self: Not too late to pick up a second-hand stairmaster.
I have one word to describe Nancy's performance - Shatneresque.

Nancy is definitely the sexier of the two. Cher, who might leave little to the imagination as far as her wardrobe, is very contrived, unnatural and boring. The male dancers, however, are hot. Now I know why all my gay male friend love Cher concerts!

LOL! The rolling off the stage, wins Nancy the contest, hands down! ;)

I'm with Vic. Guess that makes me an old fart, too! : )
