Is There a Shomer Negia Theme Song?

Earlier this week, I read a post on a blog called Passionate Life about the show “Pushing Daisies”. You can read the post here:

I was thinking about whether there are any popular songs that address being shomer negia. Most songs I know of talk about someone wanting to have sex, let’s think about the songs I listened to as a kid: “Little Red Corvette”, “Let’s Get Physical” (when I was a kid, I thought this song was about exercising at the gym), “Sugarwalls”, “Strut”; when I got older, songs such as “I Want Your Sex”, “Touch Me”, “Naughty Girls Need Love Too”, and “Let’s Talk About Sex” were popular. Imagine a 12-year old singing “I Want Your Sex”, and let’s not forget songs like “Do Me” by Bell Biv Devoe, “Let’s Talk About Sex” (one of the more thoughtful, responsible songs about sex that talks about the consequences of unprotected sex but does so in a witty 3-4 minute rap), R Kelly singing that there’s nothing wrong with a little bump and grind, a little rap about knockin da boots, boom boom boom let’s go back to my room, and Boys to Men singing about how they’ll make love to you all through the night.

Then, you have the Beatles singing about how they want to hold your hand, very risky stuff for the 60s but laughable in retrospect. However, I did think of two songs that could qualify as shomer negia theme songs; the first one was by an artist who grew up in a family that was known to be a little eccentric to say the least, you might think of her siblings as one of the first boy bands, she starred on a few popular TV shows in the 70s and 80s and by the time this particular song came out, she wanted to be in control. This was before she started wearing skimpy outfits and showing off her belly button ad nauseum.

This second song was a one hit wonder that came out in the late 80s, very danceable fun song and the video is a scream.
