The Vault: Miquel Brown’s Appetite Makes Nelly Furtado’s Promiscuity Look Prim

Jun 21st, 2007 // 8 Comments

Above, the clip for Canadian singer Miquel Brown’s Hi-NRG song “So Many Men, So Little Time,” which was released in 1983; it may be NSFW if your workplace isn’t too keen on having you look at crotch shots of guys working out (clothed crotch shots, but still). Possibly pertinent fact: One of your Idolators first heard this song in her dancing class. When she was eight. (It was somewhat helpful as far as teaching multiplication tables, come to think of it.)

    Okay that motorcycle moment.

    Oddly, it’s the headband/epaulettes I can’t get out of my head.

    if this video made me feel funny in my special area does that mean that i like working out

    This was a mid-’80s Z100 New York staple, and for my money the gay subtext on this was always much stronger than it was on “It’s Raining Men.”

    Mind you, this is with 20/20 hindsight. I knew nothing about gay subtexts as a preteen; hell, at that point I probably hadn’t figured out the Village People yet, either.

    women really can’t resist sexy bikers with moustaches that dress in all leather, can they?

    That song is the hotness. Since Idolator seems to be on this Hi Nrg kick, please some post videos for Lime/Gary Low/Evelyn Thomas…

    “It’s raining Men” has a gay subtext? Don’t think so.

    If there’s a more blatant, raunchy song about heterosexual female in mainstream pop music, I haven’t heard it yet.

    “I’m gonna go out and let myself get/absolutely soaking wet”

    I rest my case.

    (And let me tell you, nothing evokes the old “ick” factor more than seeing 60-year-old aunts and mother-in-laws bump and grind to that lyric when this song gets played at EVERY LAST WEDDING, you know what I mean?)

    The Village People are tough, though, because they’re a lot closer to the Banana Splits than to, say, the B-52s.

    wow, does that song bring back memories! And the best part? The banner ad above it on YouTube is for Sam Brownback…..

    Happy Pride everybody!
