Drumming my fingers near the keyboard it occurred to me that following Joe Strummer's Cholo Vest yesterday we could have a week of posts of songs with items of clothing in the title. For no particular reason. Feel free to make suggestions. I did think of The Charlatans song White Shirt but George posted that recently at Jim McLean's Rabbit (I think) and he doesn't like it when people do posts of songs he has posted recently.
Everyone needs some Beyonce in their life- her stuff is frequently both poppy and hard edged, innovative with mass appeal. And she's fierce. Fiercely fierce. This 2006 song, Freakum Dress, is catchy as flu and is about having that one killer dress ('every woman got one', short and backless is an option but I'm sure there are others) and what that does to the wearer and the viewer.
