Human Sexual Response will reunite on Saturday Nov. 10 at the House of Blues.
Before the term "rock 'n' roll" was applied to a certain type of music, it was a slang expression for a certain popular bedroom activity. Throughout the years - from Elvis Presley to Elvis Costello - the two meanings have frequently intertwined. Traditionally, though, the sexual sentiments expressed through pop music are on the physical, surface level.
Human Sexual Response is not above or beyond that level of expression. But "What Does Sex Mean to Me?" - perhaps their quintessential song - takes it beyond pure emotion by posing a series of intriguing observations and questions that are left unanswered. In about five minutes singer Larry Bangor explores sex in relation to himself, his parents, couples he doesn't know, pop culture, procreation, and more.
