... which was probably the songwriter's dream come true. You see, "Do You Wanna Touch Me" wasn't originally by Jett -- it was by Gary Glitter. You might know him as one of the leading figures of the glam era. Or as the writer of that hockey chant song.
Or from his many, many statutory rape cases.
The man is currently in jail for abusing three kids during the time he wrote "Do You Wanna Touch Me," and that wasn't even a first for Glitter. He was jailed in Vietnam as well, for molesting two more girls under 13 -- which should surprise nobody who's actually paid attention to the song. It opens with:
We've been here too long
Tryin' to get along
Pretending that you're oh so shy
I'm a natural man
Doin' all I can
My temperature is runnin' high
My, my, my, whiskey and rye
Don't it make you feel so fine?
Every growing boy
Needs a little joy
Even with her murder-eyes, she's still the least-threatening choice to sing those words.
Yes, in the great tradition of "Baby It's Cold Outside," "Do You Wanna Touch Me" is a ballad about liquoring up girls and having your way with them. HP pulled the song from their ads when they found out Glitter could have gotten $140,000 in royalties, and as for Glee? They apparently agreed it was inappropriate for a show about teenagers, because they eventually replaced it in the U.K. ... with "Afternoon Delight."
