SUNDAY CLASSIC GTC: Lock Up Your Men VIDEO: HOLIDAY SIDEWINDER Leo [Thom Kerr, director]
Holiday Sidewinder Leo is available at Apple Music.
by Walter Price
Back in 1981, you could hear gasps as folks first laid ears on the sexually blatant line, “There’s nothing left to talk about unless it’s horizontally”, from Olivia Newton-John’s smash hit “Let’s Get Physical”. Although she wasn’t the first to celebrate sexual-empowerment on the airwaves. Yet, Newton-John is arguably the most influential. Opening the door for artists like Cyndi Lauper, Peaches, Lady Gaga, Halsey, and many more.
And now, in a retro disco ode to ‘there ain’t no slut-shaming ’round here‘, Holiday Sidewinder has dropped  the fresh single, “Leo”. Sexy is Sidewinder’s forte, and here she shines just as bright as she has on her recently released singles, “Tra$h Can Luv” and “Casino“. This time around, she’s taking the bed back, “I don’t remember his face, but I remember when I came.” Absolutely, good on ya.
The Thom Kerr directed video finds our heroine using the tables-turned nude male form as both art and physical eye candy. You’ll also find what I assume are odes to Newton-John, Madonna, and Lucille Ball, as well. Feast your eyes and ears on it below.
Lock up your husbands and so…Holiday Sidewinder is coming round…
