410: Horny Toad

Delirious single (1983) / The Hits/The B Sides (1993)
Cut in the same mould as Delirious and Jack U Off, this lascivious rockabilly anthem is 120 seconds of jovial, jitterbug synths capped off with some downright nasty lyrics. A UV blacklight revealing the semen stains on early rock’n’roll dancing metaphors. The title is a play on ‘horned toad’ and immediately gives you a feeling of revulsion, much more than a Horny Pony would. It’s definitely not a song to run and tell your mother about but for two minutes you can channel Bill Haley’s inner Pan and pretend you’re a lusty amphibian. Try doing that with Rock Around the Clock!

    That’s the kind of joyful nastyness I like in my Prince songs!
