I touch myself

Another of my ‘tracks I like but you might not know’

It is entitled ‘I touch myself’ and is by Australian band Divinyls (fantastic name) and was recorded in 1990. I believe they were big in their home country, but to be honest I know little more about them than what can be found on Wikipedia.

However, this song, which is their biggest hit, I adore. From the opening guitar it is one of the sexiest pieces of rock music I have ever heard. I have listened to it many times over the years and it never loses its power to make me smile.

The lyric is not the greatest poetry, but it says what they wanted it to say.

I touch myself

I love myself, I want you to love me
When I feel down, I want you above me
I search myself, I want you to find me
I forget myself, I want you to remind me

I don’t want anybody else
When I think about you, I touch myself
Ooh, I don’t want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

You’re the one who makes me come runnin’
You’re the sun who makes me shine
When you’re around, I’m always laughin’
I want to make you mine

I close my eyes and see you before me
Think I would die if you were to ignore me
A fool could see just how much I adore you
I’d get down on my knees, I’d do anything for you

I don’t want anybody else
When I think about you, I touch myself
Ooh, I don’t want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

I love myself, I want you to love me
When I feel down, I want you above me
I search myself, I want you to find me
I forget myself, I want you to remind me

I don’t want anybody else
When I think about you, I touch myself
Ooh, I don’t want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

I want you
I don’t want anybody else
When I think about you, I touch myself
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ah ah ah ah oh ah

etc etc

    This has always been a great song. A song that I believe everyone in the World can relate too. At least I sure hope so.

    I still blush when I hear this, even after so many years and my advanced age, but I do like it 🙂

    I’ve always liked it as well. Also have a new favorite, but probably more well known. https://youtu.be/_dK2tDK9grQ

    The song did well in the USA, the lead singer has since passed in NYC 2013. But the song lives on and her voice makes me happy. Fun, then sensual, memories, Thank you.
