I never thought about this before, but what if "Chelsea" is a woman and not a location?

In fact, what if Chelsea is a porn star?

maybe 'green shirt' and 'Big Boys'....


mainly the first Big Boys lines:

'I am starting to function
In the usual way
Everything is so provocative
Very very, temporary'

I can related every Armed Forces song with sex.

Interesting story... after my session of sex on the steps of an elemenatary school at 3:00am, I walked home listening to the album.

It has never been the same since.

Pov is right..Chelsea is about sex...."I don't wanna check your pulse".......sounds like having sex with someone who's jaded......

..........now don't say I have sex on the brain...because I don't!

I can't speak to Elvis albums, but as for songs in general Her Majesty (:26) by the Beatles always reminds me of sex, cuz it's over real quick.

I imagine Inagoddadivida or Billy The Mountain might work for Cope.

LOL@Inagoddadivida

well I always prefered Dazed and Confuzed from the Song Remains The Same..........good somewhat homo-erotic sex music with at masculine power behind it :lol:

I can't say that I'm having any sex these days............my girlfriend has not been home in 3 weeks ---------------so Her Majesty solo is probably more my style right now....quick and dirty :lol:

One of my best friends claims his (early) debut was the most efficient in world history. He said its soundtrack would be "The Ballad Of Jimi Hendrix" by S.O.D., which clocks in at three seconds: six quick beats and the words "He's dead." When asked how it was he replied "Tragicomical, like the song."
