Songs »You Showed Me

the turtles you showed meMark Volman and Howard Kaylan, the skinny/chubby duo I'd most like to hang out with (sorry Penn and Teller, but one of you is too f-ing loud), seem like joyful goofs–I mean, they named their band the Turtles after all. But you wouldn't know it from You Showed Me, the sultry, slow hit from 1968.

A hot and heavy ode to education in the bedroom, even Salt 'N Pepa found it sexy enough to inspire a song on their 1990 Black's Magic, an album I played on my 6th grade Discman fairly constantly; and De La Soul sampled it for a song called Transmitting from Mars.

It was originally written by Gene Clark and Roger McGuinn of The Byrds and later released on their compilation PreFlyte, but their take was a bit less interesting.
