In Sound We Thrust

17 songs to make bedsprings sing

14. Betty Davis, "Game Is My Middle Name" (Betty Davis). Something for the alpha females, this jam — powered by Sly & the Family Stone's rhythm section — stalks with predatory stealth. Any man worth his coins will submit to Miles Davis' ex's demands. You will get yr freak on.

15. Bobby Byrd, "Hot Pants (I'm Comin')" (Snatch soundtrack). Byrd makes his boss James Brown sound like a shrinking violet here. This is all rock-hard urgency and potency, like a 19-year-old dude and a 35-year-old cougar bumping uglies eight miles high in a 767 bathroom.

16. LCD Soundsystem, "Yeah (Crass Version)" (LCD Soundsystem). The power of positive thinking leads to hours of restorative bonking. Epic disco punk with massive amounts of cowbell plonking and Roland 303 squelching. Yeah, indeed.

There's something vaginal about this photo, but we can't figure it out.

17. The Contortions, "Contort Yourself" (Buy). Need something S&M-ish? The tightly torqued, no-wave funk of "Contort Yourself" should tie you into provocative knots. "It's better than pleasure/It hurts more than pain/I've got what it takes/To drive you insane," James Chance barks. Ouch... mmmm.
