Radio VI, side B, track 8: “Gimme All Your Lovin'” by ZZ Top

Oh, ZZ Top, I’m sorry, guys, but there’s just always something about your songs that feel wrong and dirty, and not in the good way.  Don’t get me wrong, ZZ Top, I love your songs.  I love your bluesy rock stylings.  And maybe it’s just because I know how. . .how should I say it. . .unkempt you look.  There were certainly other bands and singers and performers who sang about dirty things, but with them, it was more dirty in a figurative way.  With you guys, anything I ever picture seems really unhygienic, and yeah, it’s judgmental of me, but I just can’t get excited about a lady who gets excited at the thought of you.  You’re the only band I listen to that makes me think that the girl you’re singing to should get tested.  Sorry, ZZ Top.  Love your music, though.

“Gimme All Your Lovin'”

I got to have a shot
‘Cause what you got is oh so sweet
You gotta make it hot
Like a boomerang, I need a repeat

Gimme all your lovin’
All your hugs and kisses, too
Gimme all your lovin’
Don’t let up until we’re through

You gotta whip it up
And hit me like a ton’a lead
If I blow my top
Will you let it go to your head?

Gimme all your lovin’
All your hugs and kisses, too
Gimme all your lovin’
Don’t let up until we’re through

<awesome guitar solo>

You gotta move it up
And use it like a school boy would
You gotta pack it up
Work it like a new boy should

Gimme all your lovin’
All your hugs and kisses, too
Gimme all your lovin’
Don’t let up until we’re through

<awesome guitar solo>
