Sinead O'Connor with MC Lyte - I Want Your Hands on Me

I guess I was 16 or so when this came out. It still looks radical to me to see a bald female pop star with no appreciable makeup and breasts hidden under an oversized motorcycle jacket. I remember buying the same jacket in London and hiding it from my parents which seems funny now because when they finally saw it they loved it....this makes me a bit sad to think there aren't many women in the top 40 these days who look like anything outside the gender binary. Plus this introduced me to MC Lyte who I loved also.
