Flashback: “Nasty Girl” by Vanity 6

Sad to report that on Monday night, Denise Matthews, better known in the 80’s as pop singer Vanity and part of the pop/funk group Vanity 6, passed away at the age of 57.

“Nasty Girl” was her (and her group’s) biggest hit in 1982, serving as part of the soundtrack of the first Beverly Hills Cop movie, the Phoebe Cates movie Private School, and on Spike Lee’s Girl 6. Two decades and change later, Inaya Day would remake the song and score a hit with it in the Australian and UK markets in 2004.

Neat little tune that had some explicit lyrics on it which kept it from charting in the 80’s, but was perfect for the movies it appeared on.
