Girls, Girls, Girls by Mötley Crüe
Album: Girls, Girls, GirlsReleased: 1987Charted:
This song is a tribute to strip clubs, seven of which are mentioned by name in the song:
The Dollhouse in Ft. Lauderdale
Tattletails in Atlanta
The Seventh Veil in Los Angeles
Crazy Horse in Paris
The Body Shop in Los Angeles
The Marble Arch, Vancouver
The Tropicana, Los Angeles
The listening party for the album was held at a strip club in Hollywood.
The video was shot at The Seventh Veil, which is mentioned in the song. Directed by Wayne Isham, the clip was very racy for its time, featuring strippers in action. Predictably, it did very well on MTV.
Some of the girls that have been married and divorced by members of Mötley Crüe include Pamela Anderson, Elaine Irwin, Heather Locklear, Brandy Brandt, Heidi Mark and Donna D'Errico.
The first line of this song, "Friday night and I need a fight" is almost identical to the first line in Sweet's "Sweet F.A." Crue Bassist Nikki Sixx is a big fan of the Sweet and likely took inspiration from them in these lyrics.
Lead singer Vince Neil has a tattoo that says "Girls, Girls, Girls." For a while, he owned a strip club in Japan that was also called "Girls, Girls, Girls."
The band was going to call the album "Entertainment Or Death." Their manager at the time, Doc Mcgee, had it tattooed to his arm, but a week later they changed the title to "Girls, Girls, Girls."
