I had the pleasure of running across Vanity 6's album. It's very entertaining. I'm only 17 years old, soon to be 18, so I know I'm a little young to remember this song. But my older sister is a huge Prince fan so I learned about them through her. The single "Nasty Girl" has always intrigued me, even at a young age and I've always wanted to hear their whole album.
It's funny, because I've been looking for the album a very long time. But it's long since out of print, which is unfortunate. Because a lot of these cookie-cutter artists could definitely pull a page and take a lesson from Vanity 6. Their intoxicatingly pop-trash hooks are an instant hit and their pornographic, bad-girl lyrics are a killer; very scandalous and controversial for the early 80's. But Prince is always good for giving his listeners a good scare or two.
"Nasty Girl," the obvious hit is probably at the top of the list for this album, but there are other stand-out tracks like "If A Girl Answers (Don't Hang up)" which is less of vocals and more of an extended interlude, where Vanity and Brenda back-talk to a boyfriend's other woman (vocals done by Prince -- so you know it's hilarious). Other great tracks include the bass-filled "Make-Up" and "Drive Me Wild." The typical 80's-esque tracks are nice too, cute hooks and more smut-laced lyrics, like "Wet Dream," and "He's So Dull."
I was also lucky to come across an unreleased track by Vanity 6 called "Vibrator." Yup, you guessed it. It's a track about the pleasures of a vibrator over an "obselete" male with no stamina. Complete with vibrating sounds and a studio-moaned orgasm! Fabulous.
