“88 Lines About 44 Women” is the name of a hit single by the new wave band The Nails. Originally recorded for their EP Hotel for Women, the song was re-recorded and released to critical and commercial acclaim on the band’s 1984 album Mood Swing. Along with the track, “Let It All Hang Out”, “88 Lines About 44 Women” peaked at number forty-six on the US dance chart in March 1985.

Marc Campbell and David Kaufman of The Nails wrote “88 Lines About 44 Women” in a Manhattan loft. The rhythm track on the song was a preprogrammed track on Kaufman’s Casio keyboard. Campbell wrote the lyrics to the song and has noted that “[s]ome of the women [referenced in the song] are real, some are made up.” Campbell wrote the song in two hours on a manual typewriter and the band recorded it the next day. The Nails never produced a music video for “88 Lines About 44 Women.”

The Nails filed several lawsuits over use of “88 Lines About 44 Women”, including a successful lawsuit over use of the song to promote the television show Dexter, as well as use by the state of Massachusetts in an anti-drinking advertising campaign.
