I'm Just About To Blow My Top

There's an interesting article by Jon Savage at the Guardian's music blog about pop music in the atomic age, and musicians responses to imminent nuclear destruction from the early 50s through to now. In the article he mentions this fantastic record by rockabilly's first lady Wanda Jackson. Savage writes she 'yokes the explosive power of 1000 suns to her orgasm'. Which isn't a sentence I'd have thought of, or one I can top.
