A Land of Both Shado and Substance

Sophie B. Hawkins gives you her sex. Either way. Damn!

Basic Instinct and "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" share a thread in that sex itself is almost not titillating enough any more, which seems kind of odd at a time when sexual freedom is at its most restrained.

The Irony: Sophie B. Hawkins is not responsible for any of the irresponsibility in Basic Instinct, but both she and it are barometers of the new sexual freedom flying in the face of caution. Or maybe they're just trying to provide us with a vicarious thrill. In any case, the ultimate irony here is that Sophie B. Hawkins had a song about a bisexual love affair in the Top 5. She gets the last laugh, and probably gives a gauze diaper about what anybody thinks.

SOPHIE B. HAWKINS performs, with the Bellefires, after 8:00 p.m. Sunday at the Button South, 100 Ansin Blvd, Hallandale, 454-0001. Tickets cost $7 and $9.
