“Woman Like A Man”
Damien Rice
2001

“♫ You wanna get boned/ you
wanna get stoned/ you wanna
get a room like no-one
else
[…] ♫”

You may have heard but a lit-erotica book is making our great puritanical country- very curious. Climbing the bestseller charts, this “shades of gray” book is taking over imaginations of hearts longing for excitement of the dominated variety.

“♫ You wanna be rich/ you
wanna be kitch/ you wanna
be the master of your
self
[…] ♫”

Most of the readers buying this lit-erotica book seem to be of the married kind, looking to spice up their bedroom lives. Listening to “Woman Like A Man”—I’m reminded that maybe a nation of unsatisfied want-to-be-dominated damsels distressed are needing a theme song for their extra curricular imaginations—

“♫ You wanna get boned/ you
wanna get stoned/ you wanna
get a room like no-one
else
[…] ♫”

What better song to be the 50 Shades theme than the vulgar promiscuities of Damien Rice’s “Woman Like A Man?”

“♫ You wanna get burned/ you
wanna get turned/ you wanna
get fucked inside
out
♫”

First released as a B-side in 2001, Damien Rice told Paste Magazine the story behind “Woman Like A Man when he said—“It’s a song about getting so close—so close to somebody that the intensity of the love that you feel for that person has this amazing potential to make you feel amazing hatred for them when something goes wrong, because you have that capacity. You feel like you know them so well, you feel like they know you so well. So they can really get into you and disturb you.”

Rice’s description could be a scene or plot point in any number of erotica themed novels that you can find in your local, neighborhood bookstores. But for now, it’s time to let Damien Rice in; Yes, this is the same Irish bloke who sings those sweet and tender soundtrack ballads that make most women swoon.

“♫ You wanna be ruled/ you
wanna be fooled/ you wanna
be a woman like a
man
♫”

“Woman Like A Man” is the darker side of Damien Rice. And some time’s, getting a little nasty can be a good thing. Just ask Mr. Rice. Go ahead a press play—I dare you! You know, you want a taste?
