That gorilla fur coat and her gorilla fur vest was everything!

She wore that like she killed and skinned and sew the coat herself; she owned that !

I really at times wish she had stayed around to do the Glamorous Life-she seemed to embody all of that at athe time.

cool

I think it really sucks how Universal has failed to cooperate with any of the reissue labels to get her solo albums issued on CD. I do know that they were approached about it.

Do you think it's possible that Denise put pressure on them to *not* reissue those recordings? hmmm it seems that she wanted to distance herself from her "Vanity" days and she was probably embarrassed/ashamed of stuff like "Pretty Mess",lol.I don't know how much control she had over those albums,though

WILD ANIMAL (title track)

This songs 'bout a little gorilla
He got long shiny black hair
all over his body
King Kong never ever left me alone
My King Kong never ever looks at any other woman
Up in the beat arouund the bend
Here comes little king kong again
Over the vine, above the tree
Here comes little King Kong looking for me
and that is why he and I hung around
that is why he is my wild animal

King Kong never ever tucks me away
My King Kong never ever... any other ladies
Up in the beat around my bend
Here come King Kong again... over my vine
and that is why he and I carry on
Ooh ooh that is why he is my wild animal
I love to play in his hair
Shiny black big brown green eyes
That's all it takes for me to fantasize
That's all it takes for me to climb my King Kong
King Kong, ooo, ooo, ooo, my little

I always like to listen to the title track of an album to see if it leads the vibe of the album

What do you all think of Wild Animal(title track)

I love the music. It is tribal organically with that 80s electronic sound underneath.
Vanity's breathy vocals serve the lyrics perfectly.

And is this not about Prince?...

she did a movie in 1979 or 1980 where she is on an island with a big,brown gorilla smile I forgot the name of it,but it seems to have inspired the "Wild Animal" song?

"Tanya's Island." Although, I totally think Wild Animal is about Prince. Remember the scene in Purple Rain where Appolonia called Prince King Kong? Vanity said it first in the original script. This is only my opinion, but I'm thinking it was perhaps an inside joke between the two. She references the term "little" way too much in the song.

This song is about a little gorilla.

He's got long shiny black hair All over his body
