    I also like that it taps into a sentimental fantasy that many of us share (perhaps it has some greater significance for peopleofcolour) re: Egypt. Balmy winds, palm trees, starry skies, exoticism, serenity.

    I mean to say, when I was a wee bairn learning about Egyptians at primary school, it exerted a powerful hold on my imagination.

    I think that's why I compared it to Boney M!

    surely the actual intercourse was 5 songs max? like blowjobs and licking don't count because craner's list is optimised for the heteronormative condition. unless yyaldrin has superhuman prowess and went for 8 hours.

    Anas bin Malik said, “The Prophet (ﷺ) used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number.” I asked Anas, “Had the Prophet the strength for it?” Anas replied, “We used to say that the Prophet (ﷺ) was given the strength of thirty (men).”

    What were the 3 entries?

    You know what I never liked this Springsteen song but it shuck in under the wire of my stoned zombie state just now as I was walking along in a brief glow of sunlight and I almost started clicking my fingers.

    Latest update: on the Tube, Maximum Style almost made me cry TWICE - the spectral beauty of the rufige strings in the central section - then the brilliance of the intro as a standalone, THEN the brilliance of the Jamaican entrance and then PARTICULARLY the brilliance of bringing in that "baby!" With the "yeah yeah"s.

    Magnificent selection of choons. Choons that have been thoroughly listened to, tested for weaknesses, found wanting.

    This is the only one on both our lists.

    Feeling all the motown choices. I think if I were to be able to easily do another genre based top 100 it would be detroit techno.

    Pretty good list except you forgot Kiss which crushes almost everything on on that list (and about everything else on Earth). No one else who ever lived could have make a one chord vanp so vividly + ambiguously sensual. Its peak Prince as receptive (i.e. gazed upon) object of desire, liminal erotic figure. Also that half-top belly shirt he wears in the video tho
