Full Version: Strip Club Music

So I'm planning a run with a meet in a strip club (stop picturing that troll striptease!). I will have background music playing to get the players into the 'mood'.
I need some music recommendations. Stuff that you'd expect strippers to be pole dancing to.

A few suggestions I have already are:
Love in an elevator - Aerosmith
Pour some sugar on me - Def Leopard
Low & Right Round - Flo Ryda

Any others ?
Umidori
Le Disko - Shiny Toy Guns

~Umidori
Whipstitch
Legs- ZZ Top is another strip club cliche.

Ahem.

Not that I would know.
Blade
Kidney Thieves: most of their songs should fit in a cyberpunk strip club.
Aerospider
Alice Cooper in interview was asked about the type of fans and groupies he attracted. He remarked that on the big tours later on in his career, the fans at the very front of the crowd were becoming more and more female and more and more attractive. He thought that his advancing years must be seriously working for him but it turned out that during downtime, while he was out relaxing on the nearest golf course, the rest of the band were kicking back rock-'n'-roll style in the flashiest strip clubs they could find, tipping the dancers with concert tickets. Maybe the girls were just trying to impress, but every single one had claimed their favourite song to dance to was Poison. I think that's a brilliant choice, though a slightly even-better choice would be Bed of Nails from the same album (Trash).

Otherwise, how about:

Addicted to Love Robert Palmer
Rag Doll Aerosmith
Pretty When you Cry VAST

"You can leave your hat on" from Whatshisface

Whatever that song was they used in the Japanese strip joint in the first Blade.

You can have school girl elf strippers! And if need be, they can be ninjas!

(Dear lord, did I really just write that?)

thanks to the cover of a norwegian comic book collection, i cant hear that song without thinking about a german midget doing a striptease on a table, with a top hat covering his privates.

Strippers dance to anything and it usually depends on the crowd. In urban clubs, the dancers do their thing to hip-hop or Top 40 pop music. In rural parts, it's classic rock and country-rock. In Europe, techno or house music.

In Diablo Cody's Candy Girl, she remarked the only way to work to Outkast's "Hey Ya" was to smoke an 8-ball of crack.

Sadly, as a former travelling business man, I have some research on this from many cities and a few countries-- no asian ones though. Strip club music is loosely geared toward the area it's in and the patron's it collects. The only thing they normally have in common is a good bass line to keep time to (no when to slid down the pole, and when to do a stunt) and a fast beat to grind to.

During the late 90's I couldn't go to a club anywhere and not hear Alice N Chain's "Man in the box". Now it is much more Lady Ga-ga and hip hop. During it's time as a top song, Paralyzer (by Finger Eleven) was also a hit for a while-- it's the strippers request, so whatever she likes to dance to (Toxic, and it's punk cover by Static Lullaby are good). Whatever the song, it will be 3 to 4 minutes (b/c they time lap dances in American clubs this way), never over. If you want to have a "dance special", the songs will be cut to 2 minutes a piece.


For your meet-- strippers will flock to the group of guys: a group, means a group of money. You'll want to point out to any street wise characters that if they aren't coming over, they must all know (via the floor manager/bouncer/door man, or the Johnson is a regular) to stay away.

A lap dance is so much better if the stripper is crying - Bloodhound Gang? Okay, maybe not seriously.
Prime Mover
Two great oldies.
1. Cherry Lane-Keel
2. Cherry Pie-Warrent

Still hearing Def Leppard's "Pour Some Suger On Me" in 2072 would both be funny and sadly ironic in a strip club hehe.

i do wonder what megacorp will hold the copyright on that in SR. Heck, that made me wonder if corp court have managed to make copyright and such to be infinite. That is, if something is under patent, it stays so for eternity, and same with copyright and trademarks. Should make for a "interesting" world, and may explain why open source projects have been driven under ground...

Is it a bit glam in here or is it just me?

I'm rather fond of KMFDM (esp the song Professional Killer) and Nine Inch Nails. You can even get tons of free NIN music (inc instrumentals which are great for RP background music) at remix.nin.com.
Mongoose
I always wanted to see a goth girl do a striptease done to Rob Zombie's "Living Dead Girl". Its got a very "bump'n'grind" beat, intentionally.

Now, forget that troll stripper. Think GHOUL stripper... maybe an infected elf, with some apperance boosting (or at least exotic) surge benefits, for cutie/scary contrast.
ker'ion
Being an ex-bouncer, I thought I would chime in really quick...

Closer by Nine Inch Nails will most likely NOT be on the list of music, as most strippers consider it to be a little too crass.
Unless you're in a sleaze-hole of a strip club.

Wouldn't matter. You really think Aztechnology is gonna respect Shiawase's patents or copyrights? Extra-territorial corps would just say "foreign laws" (patens and copyrights) don't apply on their soil, and sell any knock-offs they wanted "on their soil". If people carry those knock-offs into other countries, well, they aren't responsible for out-bound customs checks, are they?
Probably there would be some level of official lip service given to corporate accords on respect for IP, but un-officially it would only mean that you can't get caught "exporting" obvious copies (things like pirate movies). Plus you'd no doubt get corps trying to protect thier IP through marketing ("real Renraku") and proprietary formats.

Could be worse, you could have specified their sexual orientation too.

The song in the Yakuza club is "Chin Chin" by Bang Wu Cherry and DJ Dune

The blood bath at the beginning is another excellent track.

Just for shits and giggles follow the link it goes to amazon and is a listing of cd's one of which i have called Strip Jointz vol.2

Strip Music

Tis only the one page but it has a few cd's on it with different music choices.

I'm not sure they even play this at strip clubs, but is always the first song that pops in my head when somebody mentions strippers.

Most awesome thing I've ever seen a stripper dance to was Dress Rehearsal for Reproduction by God Lives Underwater. Mind. Blown.

Seen it.

The other two songs in her set were My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult's "Sex on Wheels" and Genitorturers "House of Shame"

LINKS MAY BE NSFW! Mainly the Genitorturers one, it may damage some peoples delicate sensibilities. I don't think the TKK one will damage anything other than your eyes.

As someone said, almost any music by Depeche Mode and I'll add two songs: The Borderline and Idol Talk de Macross Plus.

Most amazing strip tease I ever saw was one done to Phantom of the Opera. Yes, I am totally serious and it was awesome, she had a phantom of the opera mask and ... well, it was cool, alright? biggrin.gif

It's like I'm already living in a dystopian future.

Thanks for your Ideas Guys !
I'm working through the list, listening to the songs and picking out what I like.

Keep it Up ! grinbig.gif

fully possible to save the flv after a stream using the right software or techniques.

after that i suspect it would not be hard to disassemble the flv and extract the audio track, but i am unsure about its bitrate and such.
Zolhex
Ok so more than I would know how to do and am willing to say more than most people useing the service would know how to do.
hobgoblin
true, tho i suspect many a media ceo would love to sue if you where as much as humming one of "their" tunes.

I find that almost any song from CombiChrist fits well into many dystopian futuristic settings. Whether it be bars, night clubs, or strip clubs. A simple search should remedy any curiosity regarding this band and its style.

This is the only exception to what I am about to post:

What stripper in her right mind is going to do a pole dance to 70 year old music? How many exotic dancers do you guys think are going to be taking their clothes off to Glenn Miller tonight?

Depends entirely on which Glenn Miller tune. And it isn't up to the dancer... it's the bar that will choose music that will get guys buying booze (or rather veto music that doesn't).
StarDrifter
Exactly. The golden oldies aren't likely to draw in the kind of crowd that a strip club will play. Particularly not the kind of strip club that people attend to plan criminal activities.

With that in mind, I would say to seek out music with two themes: Generic, and free from lyrics.

Don't go for name brand music that the whole group has not only heard but probably gotten sick of hearing.

You don't need lyrics. You're the one talking.

Someone mentioned Nine Inch Nails and - as much as I hate to suggest there is anything of value about that group - they did release a free set of music a couple of years back. It may still even be free now.

Surf around places like acidplanet, mp3.com, or through the creative commons for the kind of music you're looking for. Yes, you'll probably dig up garbage. Turn your radio on to the top 40 station for fifteen minutes and you'll hear just as much garbage. Now imagine further decades of this musical de-evolution. This way you get free music that won't leave your players wondering why the stripper is dancing to the same song that great-grandma rocked out to at her prom.

In the U.S., it's almost always the dancer on the main stage that get's to pick. There's exceptions, like Tampa's Mons Venus that has such a party scene environment that there really is no main dancer-- in which case it's the DJ.
Acidsaliva
Although yes, StarDrifter my runners are going to a seedy dive of a strip bar, it still is very possible to do a great strip tease to golden oldies.

My case in point is Dita von Teese - who is one of my favourite artists.
