Ever have one of those albums you buy for one song, but then you end up enjoying so many of the others? I've found that to be the case with Digital Underground's Sex Packets album (came for "The Humpty Dance", stayed for the rest). Lots of great stuff in there, but today I'd like to talk about the title track: "Sex Packets." The boys over at Digital Underground apparently came up with a great fake product: sex packets. They're biochemically compacted sexual affection. Sex in a pill. And then they wrote multiple songs about this fake product. And then they put those songs in an album. And then I bought that album.
So today I've had the instrumental portions of the song looping over and over in my head. It's times like this that I really wish I knew more of the lyrics, so I could just get past the instrumentals. Looks like it's time to listen to it more...
