Into you like a train: Detroit slick chicks pick their horniest tunes (Metro Times)
RACHEL NAGY (The Detroit Cobras): "Libidinous? Oh, hell, I was told this was going to be 'love songs'! You say someone picked Ted Nugent? Well, I can believe that. 'Stranglehold' is very sexy. And [Willie Dixon's] 'Spoonful' is a very sexy song. Oh, man, you got me over a barrel. You know, we Cobras don't deal with sex songs as much as we deal with the 'Gee Whiz' kind of stuff. And, of course, I'm not home right now so I can't flip through my records -- so I'm just trying to think. What songs do I listen to when I fuck? (laughs) Of course, for men, it's different. That's why Ted Nugent comes up. The guitar was basically invented for men to jack off on. Well, for me, James Brown's 'Please, Please, Please' is perfect for that kinda down-on-your-knees thing. And Etta James' 'Tough Lover' and 'You Know What I Mean.' Those are the ones I would go to. And here's a ... well, I don't know if it's shameful but it's kinda weird -- I like to listen to Squeeze when I fuck. I love Squeeze! That's my dirty sexy song secret! 'Goodbye, Girl' and all that stuff. My God, it's great. Do I ever listen to the Cobras when doing the deed? Oh, no, no, no! Other people do, though, and that's a huge compliment. But no, no, listening to my own stuff? That would really ruin it for me! (laughs) I don't like myself that much! My publicist told me this was about love. That's just like a man, y'know? They tell you and make you think it's all about love ... when it's really only all about sex."
