BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
“Sugar Walls” is the second single from Sheena Easton’s 1984 album A Private Heaven that spent 9 weeks on the pop chart.
A top ten hit in the United States on both the pop (#9) and R&B (#3) charts, the song was composed by Prince, utilizing the pseudonym “Alexander Nevermind”. The song failed to chart well in her native UK.
The song title is presumed to refer to the “walls” of the vagina, which was perhaps sufficiently subtle by itself, but the general content was considered suggestive enough to qualify the song for the “Filthy Fifteen.” Although Easton’s video clip for “Sugar Walls” did not in itself feature any controversial content, some music-video broadcasters refused the video airplay because of the sexual imagery of the song’s lyrics. Televangelist Jimmy Swaggart constantly criticized the song on his television program when it was first released.
