Hot Jam: "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" (Video)
Remember little Sophie B. Hawkins? God, she was hot, with her lippy lips and her flowing hair and her facey face (WTF is a facey face? We have no idea, but she had one.) Anyway, even when we were in the fifth grade, we remember thinking she was a saucy minx. Her sultry voice and naughty lyrics inspired in us a kind of proto-Sapphism that would later bear fruit in the form of an “experimental” period, as is required for young women who go to college and/or move to Brooklyn in their early twenties (ding! ding!) Oh, Sophie B., long may your banner wave. You also had that song about Hansel and Gretel making out with each other or whatever, which we liked a lot less than this non-incestuous sex jam, but maybe Hansel and Gretel weren’t brother and sister in your version of the story? Anyway, we love you, Sappho B. Hawkins.
