I was sleeping today, exhausted by too many nights up for too long, needless to say, longer than really needed. In between thoughts, dreams, nightmares and punches from my overloaded liver, an old song started rambling on my head…

…the original is dated back to 1982, from the States, explicit lyrics, and those "big sounds" which make it so 80s and mystify the underlying R&B mood.

AAMOF the version echoing in my mind is much newer, acoustic, suffered, and really really great.

Lyrics are in a basic and direct English, so un-poetic and somehow sexist, but explicit enough to merit a temporary ban from radio and TVs at that time.

Actually I don't feel like it, and currently not looking for it: it was just a mid-afternoon dream. Dry and distorted by a long playlist in the background.




Marvin Gaye - Sexual Healing (1982)
(Marvin Gaye/David Ritz/Odell Brown)

Ooh, now let's get down tonight
Baby I'm hot just like an oven
I need some lovin'
And baby, I can't hold it much longer
It's getting stronger and stronger

And when I get that feeling
I want Sexual Healing
Sexual Healing, oh baby
Makes me feel so fine
Helps to relieve my mind
Sexual Healing baby, is good for me
Sexual Healing is something that's good for me

Whenever blue tear drops are falling
And my emotional stability is leaving me
There is something I can do
I can get on the telephone and call you up baby, and
Honey I know you'll be there to relieve me
The love you give to me will free me
If you don't know the things you're dealing
I can tell you, darling, that it's Sexual Healing
Get up, Get up, Get up, Get up, let's make love tonight
Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, 'cos you do it right
Baby I got sick this morning
A sea was storming inside of me
Baby I think I'm capsizing
The waves are rising and rising

And when I get that feeling
I want Sexual Healing
Sexual Healing is good for me
Makes me feel so fine, it's such a rush
Helps to relieve the mind, and it's good for us
Sexual Healing, baby, is good for me
Sexual Healing is something that's good for me
And it's good for me and it's good to me
My baby ohhh

Come take control, just grab a hold
Of my body and mind soon we'll be making it
Honey, oh we're feeling fine
You're my medicine open up and let me in
Darling, you're so great
I can't wait for you to operate
I can't wait for you to operate
When I get this feeling, I need Sexual Healing [Ad lib ..> ..>
