Flavorwire Premiere: Sizzy Rocket’s Second Single “Boy” Shows She’s Far More Than Her Sexuality

By

“I may be young, but I know what I want” is an apt opening line for “Boy,” the second single from rising pop musician Sizzy Rocket. Her first, “Bestie,” was part cheeky pop parody, part queer empowerment: atop a track that would fit in on Taylor Swift’s 1989, she lusts hard for her best girl friend like she’s another one of her girlfriends, rather than a prop for male desire. Rocket takes it down a sexual notch with the romance of her synth-driven power-ballad “Boy,” but she’s still direct. “Boy, you’re giving me life,” she asserts on the song, which Flavorwire is pleased to premiere below.

A Selection of the Flat-Out Dirtiest Songs in the History of Music

By

The good folk at Dangerous Minds are great at unearthing amazing YouTube rarities, and they outdid themselves last week with a 1971 performance by Ike and Tina Turner, which goes down in history as one of the most subtly filthy live performances we’ve ever seen — it’s basically one long allusion to oral sex, with Tina spending most of her time doing very, very suggestive things to the microphone, and while Ike’s ophidian glare still gives us the creeps, he does make some glorious slurping noises into his own mic. The crowd clearly knows exactly what’s going on, sniggering throughout, and the whole thing’s a testament to just how filthy music could be, even in an era that was still comparatively conservative. Anyway, the spectacle got us thinking about our favorite dirty songs, the best of which we have shared after the jump. Don’t play these while your boss is around. Obviously.
