Not Your Usual Melanie

Wow! Never expected to find this available (I thought it was out of print). I loved Melanie's stuff from the 1970s, which was very acoustic driven and folksy. She did a complete 180 for this album - using electronic instruments and drum machines. Her voice sounds great, but it's quite an adjustment for fans of her older material. She gets points for trying something different though!

Strange Melanie album

I remember when this album came out in 1982. This is Melanie hyped up on disco or whatever. In those days it was cool to be involved in sexual experimentation and vulgar music. Melanie writes about (her?) sexual life before AIDS. "Whose been sleeping in my bed" was a minor hit in gay discos. She sings the words "God damn" in this song almost as much as Stepenwolfs' "The pusher man". I love the song "Abuse". It sounds like a theme song for an old James bond movie. I can almost see Melanie having sex in some sado bordelo. Melanie in leather spanking her lover. WHAT A PICTURE!!! I wonder if she was wearing rollerskates? LOL
