freaks were once something odd or unusual, like someone with six toes on one foot.
in time honoured ‘bad meaning good’ tradition, a freak has subverted its unpolitically correct beginnings to describe someone totally up for it. so, a slapper in other words.
that’s progress, then.
aaron hall – get a little freaky
all of new jack bad boy aaron’s output had something a bit seedy about it.
bar-kays – freaky behaviour
controversy-era prince-lite. so if the man himself can’t satisfy you with his vast back catalogue, look no further.
doug e.fresh – freaks
its a long way from ‘the show’ to this, and i can barely hear doug in here, but…whatever.
egyptian lover – freakaholic
god i love this. i wish i hadn’t discovered it 20 years too late.
jodeci – freak’n’you
as if the original wasn’t filthy enough, this is the ginuwine blended bootleg. jodeci really don’t need any help in the sleaze department.
leon haywood – freaky
soul creeper from 80s soul boy leon.
o’bryan – i’m freaky
more prince-lite, well he was the first to make freaks socially acceptable.
r.kelly – freak dat body
clearly all of r.pissy’s songs are about freaks in one form or another. this was the b side to the much tamer ‘she’s got that vibe’.
rick james – superfreak
ok so you’ll never hear this without thinking of mc hammer, but its still quality.
royalle delite – i’ll be a freak for you
what happened to this group? if anyone out there knows, drop me a line. i wish i could find more from them.
sexual harrassment – i need a freak
minimal funk a la vanity 6, but male. love it.
sweet stuff – freaky
clearly the origins of freaks in soul go way back to the late 60s. bet this wouldn’t have got played on totp.
