Now I can’t take any of the credit for this insane list, it was once published in an old mag I was looking at which I did some blog posts about last month. Follow this link here to find more about it, if you do just look for the front cover with the totally naked male singer on the cover!

Unfortunately that there are no dates next to the singers and song titles because I would have like to know more but when ever to look back past the the 60’s/50’s things seem to be pretty vague because no wrote anything down where we are too much the other way around now.

Anyway hope someone else’s out there enjoy all or some of those crazy songs too? Gotta ask, do you know any even more dirty pre-60’s tracks?

It’s Bessie Smith!

BTW I’ve got a little mad with even more of my yearly playlists updates! With now 40 songs in all the 70’s: 1979, 1978, 1977, 1976, 1975, 1974, 1973, 1972, 1971, 1970 plus the mid to late 60’s with 30 tracks: 1969, 1968, 1967, 1966 and 1965.

Cheers 🙂


  1. Fun post, William 🙂
    Bull Moose Jackson was widely known, in his day, for such bawdy songs, as they called them. Here’s another example, and it looks as if it can be found, along with many others, on a 2 CD compile, pictured while the song plays…
