SHOW ME YOUR, AHEM, TALENT

At last--karaoke singers can bare their souls without the pesky restrictions of clothing.

BERLIN, Conn. Feb 9, 2005 — After a yearlong fight with the town, a bar is going ahead with a plan to have patrons belt out ballads in the buff. On Saturday night, the Berlin Station Cafe is scheduled to hold its controversial "Naked Karaoke" event.

Which begs the question...which songs are the best ones to be rendered au naturel?

My list:

1) See Me, Hear Me, Touch Me, Feel Me--because it's always helpful for nude singers to issue instructions to their audiences.
2) Paradise by the Dashboard Light--because a classic duet about teenage sex (which contains baseball commentary) becomes so much more seminal when the singers are nekkid.
3) The Stroke--because Billy Squier's ode is that much more poignant when accompanied by a visual.
4) Do You Love Me?--oops, no need to ask: I can see for myself.
5) Dress You Up (in My Love)--this Madonnesther song has love-as-clothing imagery, as well as multiple warblings of "from your head down to your toes" that potentially leads to suggestive choreography.
6) Rumpshaker/Baby Got Back/Bootylicious/The Humpty Dance--no explanations necessary.

More songs to be added to the list as I consider this today, and as my readers write in with their own...

Forgive me for getting crude (though you started!), but:

I Touch Myself - The Divinyls
Turning Japanese - The Vapors (and if you don't know why, I can explain it)

Peace.

P.S. When you making the drive up to CT?

Some oldies to do in the buff:

"The Twist" - Chubby Checker
"My Ding-A-Ling" - Chuck Berry

This reminds me of a Jack Handy thought -
"I'd like to see a nude opera, because when they hit those high notes, I bet you can really see it in those genitals."

I'm imagining some very sexy nekkid man singing "You make me feel...like a natural woman..."
