"I had the pleasure of running across Vanity 6's album. It's very entertaining. I'm only 17 years old, soon to be 18, so I know I'm a little young to remember this song. But my older sister is a huge Prince fan so I learned about them through her. The single "Nasty Girl" has always intrigued me, even at a young age and I've always wanted to hear their whole album.It's funny, because I've been looking for the album a very long time. But it's long since out of print, which is unfortunate. Because a lot of these cookie-cutter artists could definitely pull a page and take a lesson from Vanity 6. Their intoxicatingly pop-trash hooks are an instant hit and their pornographic, bad-girl lyrics are a killer; very scandalous and controversial for the early 80's. But Prince is always good for giving his listeners a good scare or two."Nasty Girl," the obvious hit is probably at the top of the list for this album, but there are other stand-out tracks like "If A Girl Answers (Don't Hang up)" which is less of vocals and more of an extended interlude, where Vanity and Brenda back-talk to a boyfriend's other woman (vocals done by Prince -- so you know it's hilarious). Other great tracks include the bass-filled "Make-Up" and "Drive Me Wild." The typical 80's-esque tracks are nice too, cute hooks and more smut-laced lyrics, like "Wet Dream," and "He's So Dull."I was also lucky to come across an unreleased track by Vanity 6 called "Vibrator." Yup, you guessed it. It's a track about the pleasures of a vibrator over an "obselete" male with no stamina. Complete with vibrating sounds and a studio-moaned orgasm! Fabulous."
Very Fun at The Time and Now As Well

"These ladies were just having fun back then. Yeah the lyrics are a bit over the top but the music is pretty cool. I still hear Nasty Girl on the radio these days. Vanity, Susan, and Brenda were talented enough to still get attention after 25 years so lets lay off on some of the nasty criticism. Just have fun with it. Don't forget if a girl answers don't hang up!!"

"Oh my god. This album -- unbelievably hilarious. My friends and I used to listen to this in 9th grade, reciting in staccato bravado "If A Girl Answers, Don't Hang Up" -- and I just downloaded this song, honestly haven't heard it in probably 20 years, and it is even BETTER and more HYSTERICAL than it was in 9th grade...And -- I can't believe I never noticed this, but I think it is Prince acting as the other woman when the girls call "Jimmy's" house to get a ride to the party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF?????? and THAT makes it SCREAMINGLY funny. 20 years later, close to my 40s, and I still get a kick out of this. That is why they call them "classics" - timeless in their appeal. Can anyone confirm if it is Prince?"
