Why this feminist white girl adores 2 Live Crew

Uh, I was about to explain why I love 2 Live Crew but I've been hitting the red wine tonight and I'm a bit trashed so I'll see how far I get. First off, when I say that I love 2 Live Crew, what I mean is that I love the three songs of theirs that I listen to on my way to work:

Me so horny
Face down ass up
Hoochie mama

I didn't always love them. In fact, ten years ago when I was with Dave I told him that I did not want to hear Me So Horny every time I walked into his place. At that point I was uptight and couldn't get over the depiction of women. However, since that time I have come to love the songs. In fact recently I've had the oddest urge to go up to adults on the subway (male/female/seniors/whatev...) and state, "My favourite time is 69. Bitch you know it's hoochie time!"

Luckily I resist that urge.

It used to bother me that I loved 2 Live Crew. After all, the portrayal of women in the songs isn't exactly empowering.

Okay, will write more later when I'm not trashed...

Ah, yes, hip hop classics! Luv the sample from Full Metal Jacket--me luv you long time!

Banned in the USA, Pop that coochie, they don't make classics like those anymore ;)

Not 2 Live Crew, but Eazy E always makes me giggle like a child when I listen to him.

I went to Germany not long after As Nasty As They Want To Be came out.
Everyone on my tour bought a copy because it was banned in Canada.

Great memories...

But what are your thoughts on "Oy It's So Humid" by the 2 Live Jews?

Rox: Oooh, and I did drunken text too that night. In your honour.

Brice: That's awesome!!!!

Laverne: You can be my hoochie mama

Perplexio: Seriously? Oh, I'm definitely looking for that on Youtube.
