RIP Big Man - Marilyn Chambers (Addendum)


Marilyn Chambers - Benihana [ysi]

What is it about porn stars and Disco? Most famously there's tracks from Dennis Parker ("Like an Eagle") and Andrea True ("More, More, More") but even Marilyn Chambers had a go with "Benihana" in 1977. It looks like she made a play for the mainstream that year, also appearing in Cronenberg's vampire-armpit flick Rabid.

In truth "Benihana" is nowhere near as good as the aforementioned songs but it has a nice intro, is breezy and plays the post-Donna Summer, post-hardcore moan card to endearingly stupid effect near the end. Unh yeah, unh yeah.
