Nasty Jam of the Day: "Lick It Before You Stick It" by Denise LaSalle

This bitch is in her 70s and still nasty as hell. Who says you can't still be a nasty whore when you get old? Such an inspiration and role model. touched

biggrin I love Denise. I remember when she caused a big stink back in the 80s with her song "Don't Mess With My Toot - Toot".

The "toot toot" was a colloquial term for heart. The perceived double entendre was not intended. wink

I was never sure what a "toot-toot" was but some radio stations were very reluctant to play the song. Weird thing here in Michigan was black radio stations wouldn't touch it but it got picked up by Pop stations. It ended up being a big hit for her. It was the first and only time she ever appeared on Solid Gold.

They got mad at the title perhaps. lol

There was a man that had a version of this song also. His version sounded very "New Orleanish" and I think his version may have gotten more national airplay than our local born and raised Denise LaSalle. His version was called "My Toot Toot" so I think that's why everyone keeps thinking Denise LaSalle's is the same title. But Denise's version is called "My Tu-Tu"....

She mentions his name in several of her songs as well as many of the other blues singers. She probably has met him and probably has been on the same concert ticket with him because there are blues festivals down here all the time that feature several acts on the same show. Hell, all the blues singers live right here in either Jackson or other parts of Mississippi. lol

Speaking of "My Tu-Tu" though, y'all should hear the record she made the very next year called "Look What Can Happen To You (If You Get Caught Messin' With My Tu-Tu)". She's rappin' in this song and talking about all the different singers trying to mess with her tu-tu. She mentions Kool and The Gang, The Fatboys, Bruce Springsteen, Doug E. Fresh, Johnny Taylor, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Latimore, BB King.....oh yeah, and she said "I even made purple rain down on Prince". lol

Hey Andy, you can claim Denise because I know she is originally from Mississippi, but she lives in MY old hometown now, the other Jackson, in Tennessee. I've run into her several times there and happened to see her bus a week or so ago when I was there so I guess she was home. She's very cool and just like everybody else when she's not defending her "tu-tu!" lol

It isn't. Louisiana native Sidney Semien wrote "Don't Mess With My Toot-Toot" and released it in 1984. Denise covered it the following year. The Toot-toot was regional slang for the heart.

Here's another version by Doug Kernshaw:

John Fogerty also did it.

eek How weird! I never heard anyone's version except Denise's and although from the South never heard of the heart referred to as the "toot-toot" either! You know we never thought of it as anything quite as nice as the heart! lol

Yeah "toot-toot" is taken differently with us. White folks here may think it's "the heart" but black folks think it's...something else. evillol In that case, we're both right. biggrin

I heard the other guy's version (which I didn't like) on white radio and I never heard Denise's version on anything but black radio. The other guy's version sounded to me like that New Orleans type music that you hear in the Popeye's chicken commercial. It didn't sound like it would fit in with anything at all on black radio during that time and I think maybe white radio picked it up because it sounded "artsy" or "cultural". barf

Besides "Trapped By a Thing Called Love", my favorite track from her.

And let it be known the woman writes all her own stuff. She also produced her own stuff at a time when women weren't doing that often. In fact she, Betty Wright, Syreeta Wright, Minnie Riperton and Angela Winbush were rare when it came to that because no other woman was doing that. So Ms. LaSalle was really independent.

I love the live version of "Trapped" from her "Still Trapped" album. In that version she tells of all of the songs that have the same music. Namely this one:
