Amor físic: sex pop songs

Antonio Cánova Eros y Psique


Cançons al voltant del sexe, cançons sensuals, cançons calentes, cançons que per una o altra via transmeten la poètica, la diversió, la naturalitat, el plaer, la necessitat del sexe en les relacions humanes. Cançons sofisticades o descarades, o les dues coses, cançons que desafien la convencionalitat i el que és políticament correcte amb dosis d'intel·ligència, sensibilitat, bon gust o simple picardia aparentment ingenua, deixant de banda la grolleria i la vulgaritat.

Aquí s'en presenten algunes, totes bastant evidents i clàssiques, però segur que en coneixes alguna més; si ens la dius als comentaris la publicarem a continuació d'aquestes.

Fellas, I'm ready to get up and do my thing (yeah go ahead!)
I wanta get into it, man, you know (go ahead!)
Like a, like a sex machine, man, (yeah go ahead!)
Movin' and doin' it, you know
Can I count it off? (Go ahead)

One, two, three, four!

Get up, (get on up)
Get up, (get on up)
Stay on the scene, (get on up), like a sex machine, (get on up)
!!!

James Brown



Comencem per una de les primeres mostres de pop sexual elegant i suggerent. Els gemecs de Jane Birkin són història.

Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin Je t'aime (1969)

- Je t’aime je t’aime
Oh oui je t’aime
- Moi non plus
- Oh mon amour
- L’amour physique est sans issue
Je vais je vais et je viens
Entre tes reins
Je vais et je viens
Je me retiens
- Non ! maintenant viens...



Al nostre país, Franco estava a punt de palmar i aquesta cançó el va enterrar definitivament. Donna Summer aconseguia posar calent a tothom, semblava que estiguéssis fent l'amor amb ella. Magnífica, magnífica, gràcies per sempre Donna!

Donna Summer Love to Love You Baby (1975)

I love to love you baby...

When you're laying so close to me
there's no place I'd rather you be
than with me here

I love to love you baby...

Do it to me again and again
you put me in such an awful spin
in a spin

I love to love you baby...



El gran Marvin en un dels seus darrers grans moments. Patint una fase depressiva i entenent el sexe com la millor teràpia. Genial, com gairebé sempre.

Marvin Gaye Sexual Healing (1982)



And my emotional stability is leaving me
There is something I can do
I can get on the telephone and call you up baby, and
Honey I know you'll be there to heal me
The love you give to me will free me
If you don't know the things you're feeling
Oh I can tell you, darling, that it's Sexual Healing

Get up, Get up, Get up, Get up - let's make love tonight
Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, Wake up - 'cos you do it right



Aquell estiu Diana competia amb Marvin amb aquest altre hit. Soc dona i m'agraden els tios cachas, passa alguna cosa? La llibertat sexual pujava un grau més ...

Diana Ross Muscles (1982)

>


They say they have to see
His real personality
But that's alright for them
Still it ain't enough for me

I need what the eyes can see, ah
(His anatomy)
If that's alright for them
Still it ain't enough for me

I don't care if he's young or old
Just make him beautiful
I just want some strong man to hold on to

I want muscles
All, all over his body
(Make him strong enough from his head down to his toes)
I want muscles
All over his body
(Make him strong enough from his head down to his toes)



La salsa és un ritme sensual en si mateix i aquesta lletra va fer furor per divertida i descarada sense caure (pels pèls) en el mal gust.

Lalo Rodríguez Devórame otra vez (1987)

Hasta en sueños he creído tenerte devorándome
Y he mojado mis sábanas blancas recordándote
En mi cama nadie es como tu - no he podido encontrar
la mujer que dibuje mi cuerpo en cada rincón
sin que sobre un pedazo de piel - ay vén

Devórame otra vez, vén devórame otra vez, vén castígame
con tus deseos más - que el vigor lo guarde para ti
Ay vén devórame otra vez, devórame otra vez - que la boca
me sabe a tu cuerpo, desesperan mis ganas por ti...



Aquesta em sembla una de les millors cançons d'aquest subgènere pop. Un tema tòrrid amb una lletra explícita i directa, gairebé política, reivindicant el sexe... monògam!

George Michael I Want Your Sex (1987)


I want your sex
I want your love
I want your.....sex

It's natural
It's chemical (let's do it)
It's logical
Habitual (can we do it?)
It's sensual
But most of all.....
Sex is something that we should do
Sex is something for me and you

Sex is natural - sex is good
Not everybody does it
But everybody should
Sex is natural - sex is fun
Sex is best when it's....one on one
one on one

I'm not your father
I'm not your brother
Talk to your sister
I am a love

C-c-c-c-come on

What's your defintion of dirty baby
What do you consider pornography
Don't you know I love it till it hurts me baby
Don't you think it's time you had sex with me

What's your defintion of dirty baby
What do you call pornography
Don't you know I love it till it hurts me baby
Don't you think it's time you had sex with me

Sex with me
Sex with me
Have sex with me

C-c-c-c-come on



El missatge sexual és tan evident com críptic en aquesta preciosa cançó inspirada en el Rayuela de Julio Cortázar.

Juan Luis Guerra y 4.40 Burbujas de amor (1990)



Quisiera ser un pez
Para tocar mi nariz en tu pecera
Y hacer burbujas de amor por dondequiera
Pasar la noche en vela
Mojado en ti

Un pez
para bordar de corales tu cintura
Y hacer siluetas de amor bajo la luna
saciar esta locura
mojado en ti

Una noche
Para hundirnos hasta el fin
Cara a cara
Beso a beso
Y vivir
Por siempre
Mojado en ti



I que pinta aquí l'Alizée? ... doncs que em sembla una de les actuacions més sexys que he vist a la tele. La cançó, que no pot ser més tonta, és un simple pretext per arribar al darrer minut d'aquesta interpretació. L'expressió d'ingenuitat i malícia en la carona d'Alizée mentre fa el ball del peix és un tot un compendi de la millor tradició del pop sensual femení ... en francès.

Alizée J'en ai marre (2003)

J'ai la peau douce
Dans mon bain de mousse
Pas de secousses sismiques
Je me prelasse
Et me delasse
C'est mon etat aquatique
Y'a comme un hic!

Badá badá bam bam

Badá badá bam bam ...


No hem trobat el vídeo de la cançó que ens proposa Marta, però sí que hi ha un altra del mateix àlbum, Sensus, basada en un sonet de... William Shakespeare!

Cristina Branco Se a alma te reprova (2003)


Faz só meu nome teu amor e amor;
E amas-me então pois eu te chamo Ardor
Se a alma te reprova eu venha perto,
Jura à cega, que o teu ardor eu fosse;
Ardor tem, como saber, sítio certo,
E assim me enchas, amor, medida doce.

Ardor enche de ardor e amor teu cofre,
Ai, ladeia-o de ardor! E ardor do apronto
E bem prova que em vazadouro sofre
Se o número é grande, eu só não conto.


... i mesos després, la Beatxu ens proposa aquesta altra òptica sexual (podeu seguir la lletra al seu comentari d'aquest post) a càrrec de la formidable banda de prog metal, Tool

Tool Prison Sex (1993)

Aquest post que apunta cap a sèrie! I cap a una expo real a alguna biblio! Great!

Marta ha dit...

No és pop, vale, però també es pot posar a la llista. De fet, tot l'àlbum "Sensus" de Cristina Branco. Escolteu aquesta:

Segredo

Não contes do meuvestido
que tiro pela cabeça

nem que corro oscortinados
para uma sombra mais espessa

Deixa que feche oanel
em redor do teu pescoço
com as minhas longaspernas
e a sombra do meu poço

Não contes do meunovelo
nem da roca de fiar

nem o que façocom eles
a fim de te ouvir gritar

Aquesta cançó no entra dins el pop però trobo que aporta una altra visió del sexe...llegiu, escolteu i opineu!

It took so long to remember just what happened.
I was so young and vestal then,
You know it hurt me,
But I'm breathing so I guess I'm still alive
Even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
Got my hands bound,
My head down, my eyes closed,
Half closed, wide open

Do unto others what has been done to me,
Do unto others what has been done to you.

I'm treading water,
I need to sleep a while.
My lamb and martyr, you look so precious.
Won't you, won't you come on a bit closer,
Close enough for I can smell you.
I need you to feel this,
I can't stand to burn too long.
Release in this sodomy.
For one sweet moment I am whole.

Do unto me now what has been done to me,
Do unto you what has been done.

You're breathing so I guess you're still alive
Even if signs seem to tell me otherwise.
Won't you, won't you come on a bit closer,
Close enough for I could smell you.
I need you to feel this.
I need this to make me whole.
Released in this sodomy.
I am your witness that blood and flesh can be trusted
I am your witness that blood and flesh can be trusted
Only this one holy medium brings me peace of mind.

Got your hands bound
And your head down,
And your eyes closed.
You look so precious now.

I have found some kind of temporary sanity in this
Shit, blood, and cum on my hands.

I've come round full circle

My lamb and martyr, this will be over soon.
You look so precious.
You look so precious.
You look so precious.
You look so precious.
You look so precious now.
You look so precious...
