The Indie Strip Club: 10 Songs Fit for the Fittest

    I don't frequent the nudie bars as much as I'd like to. I have, however, spent some time imagining the ideal place for a person like myself to get a buzz on and enjoy some exotic dancing. A bar where I can get a cheap can of beer, or a nice handcrafted cocktail depending on my mood. A strip club where my buddies and I could end a night, and at the same time a place where I could meet a girl I'd actually want to see again. Most importantly, a lounge that plays some decent music. The radio hard rock and club-banging hip-hop of the average gentleman's club gets tired. I recently discovered that I'm not alone in my thinking. Take a look at this quick list of tracks one might hear at such a hangout. The indie strip club.

    1. The Velvet Underground - "Venus in Furs"



    At the indie strip club, there's inevitably going to be some darker, more sinister sexy songs. I always considered The Velvet Underground's "Venus in Furs" to be the epitome of that style.

    2. The Liminanas - "Longanisse"



    A nice follow-up track to "Venus in Furs." The Gainsbourg-esque throwback French psych-pop sounds of The Liminanas can easily be the soundtrack to a bob-haired dancer wearing only a live snake. (note: the word "Longanisse" refers to a type of spicy sausage)

    3. New Order - "Blue Monday"



    Upping the energy up just a bit, "Blue Monday" would surely be the nerdy spectacled dancer's anthem.

    4. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Man"



    Just bring out the sweatiest, most badass chick in the house for this one. Naturally, she looks exactly like Karen-O.

    5. Death Grips - "The Cage"



    Cage dancers. Would an indie strip club have those? It better.

    6. The Weeknd - "Initiation"



    The night is winding down. Bad decisions have been made. Just ride it out.

    7. Grimes - "Nightmusic"



    Grimes' music makes a lot of sense when you put it into an indie strip club setting. I bet she would agree.

    8. Phantogram - "When I'm Small"



    Probably Phantogram's most recognizable song, "When I'm Small," would be a hit at the indie strip club. Incredibly danceable for those who dance, and undeniably head-nodding for those who...watch.

    9. Chromatics - "Lady"



    In the same vein as Phantogram's track, the high point of sexiness on Chromatics' latest record would be an intense moment of all-eyes-on-stage at the indie strip club.

    10. The Cure - "Fascination Street"



    Think of the head-swaying bass line and foot-stomping snare as more hip-swinging and hair-throwing. Pair with the quintessential, usually reserved goth girl. "Fascination Street" wouldn't be a bad name for the club, either.
