CONFESSIONS MODEL SPOTLIGHT: Apollo Call

This next model spotlight is one of the most recognizable male model in Second Life especially with the Japanese community. You have seen him grace magazine covers like Maniera and his face have appeared all over high quality fashion stores like Gabriel, Champagne! Sparkling Fashions and W&Y to name a few. He is represented by many top modeling agencies and recently named one of the finalist for Mister Virtual World. This talented multi-lingual model along with his Sora Tatham, have helped bridge the gap between the Japanese fashion community with the rest of the fashion world.

Please Welcome Apollo Call.


Q: Please tell us about yourself how you ventured into the modeling industry.

AC: I was having fun to create a cool avatar from the beginning of my SL. I joined Starfleet when I was 2 month old here. I just needed the uniform there and didn’t need many civilian’s clothes. About a year ago, a friend of mine told me about BOSL Magazine’s Mr. Virtual World contest. I am getting curious about the SL fashion Industry. I just took the first head shot of mine by myself and sent the application form. I didn’t even know how to walk on runway and pose. When I went to the live audition, I realized most of the contestants were models. They really looked and moved so cool. I saw Phillip and Salvo there and I looked like their kid. I knew I didn’t even have a slight chance to stand next to them. It was a truly exciting experience though. I was glad to have the opportunity to walk on the huge runway. Since then I started to observe SL fashion shows and sent applications to many agencies.

Q: Please tell us about some of your accomplishments within the modeling industry and describe what would be one of the most defining moments of your modeling career.

AC: Maniera Magazine:July 2009 Cover and Interview & February 2010 Valentine article, Model of the week in SuperElite blog, Mr. Moolto Finalist, Mr. SE Winter 1st Runner up, Mr. Costa Rica Finalist. Print and Cover model for Champagne!, Gabriel, W&Y.

Present Agencies : Agata, BeStyle, Costa Rica Production, EIMA, Evane, iC Motion, IMAGE, JSE, Maniera, Modavia, ModelX, Opium, The SuperElite, 5th Avenue

I am basically very shy, so I haven’t applied so many contests or awards to get focused.
But after I met Topaz Joubert,  Maniera’s CEO, the door to my modeling career had been opened. I met her through Sami Kutanaga, the manager of Maniera, who was once my student at Starfleet Academy. (I am not sure she is happy to hear I revealed her past occupation as a Starfleet officer though.) I had trouble making my shape look better and didn’t know which parts I should change. Topaz took me to the places for skins, eyes, and hair patiently. She also suggested me how to make my own style. She showed me the rope and I am now here because of her great lessons.

Q: You have certainly established yourself well within the modelling industry. Please tell us what you believe are the essential elements to being a successful model.  Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

AC: I am still learning and trying to improve myself. I was self-taught at the beginning but I went to 2 academy classes later.( SuperElite Advanced Class and male model class under Mimmi Boa and Salvo Waydelich at Mimmi Boa Modeling School) It might be a quick way to learn about modeling. And also it is important observe models on runway, look them closer with your camera, observe how they create the face features, how to make well-balanced shapes, movements of the body, how to connect pose to pose, how to coordinate the whole outfits… sort of stuff. You shouldn’t copy their style. You have to make your own unique style. But learn how they create their style.

Q: What do you like and dislike about modeling?

AC: I am trying to be a super realistic model, not like close to reality. Beyond reality, looks very real, but can never be create in RL. The process is hard but it’s fun to play around with it.

What I dislike is a drama, as many people might say.  Sadly there are many dramas and political issues in this dream world too. There are many so called confused divas or pre-Madonna. I am trying not to get involved with this ugly side. The modeling is serious issue sometimes but we have to have fun. SL is for us to relax and have fun. We shouldn’t get stressed out in here. If you take it too serious, a drama will be born. We have to have responsibility to act in SL, modeling, building, selling, making love or whatever. We should respect the other avatars. But I don’t want to live in SL like in RL. This should be our fantasy world.

Q: Please tell us what motivates you to be a model. Who inspires you the most and what is your inspiration?

AC: As I said before, Mr. VW was the trigger. And Ms. Topaz is one of my mentors. As a fellow model, Phillip Dollinger is the one who I always look up to. My style is completely different from his. Perhaps, he is French and I am trying to create the image of all American boys with a touch of my oriental roots. But I am impressed every time when I see him on runway or even in casual outfits. His styling is always perfectly done from head to toe.

Q:    What are your plans and goals for the future in modeling?

AC: I am living in SL for 2 years now. (I feel so old like a senior citizen here.) The first year, I was in Starfleet dedicated myself building holograms and star systems in the Astrometrics Deck. The second year, I was busy modeling trying to accomplished something. So, I am looking for more creative and productive work in here. But not sure what I want to do exactly… perhaps explore the strange new SL worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where I have never gone before.

Q: Is there anything else that you would like to add?


AC:
Thank you for choosing me in your blog. I am so honored. And thank you for reading my interview. Have fun in SL, folks!

Thank You So Much Apollo for letting us interview you and for sharing your modeling experiences and tips to our readers. We wish you the best in all your endeavors. Please leave some comments for Apollo.

FEEL

Come on hold my hand,
I wanna contact the living.
Not sure I understand,
This role I’ve been given.

I sit and talk to god
And he just laughs at my plans,
My head speaks a language, I don’t understand.

(chorus)
I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in.
’cause I got too much life,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

I don’t wanna die,
But I ain’t keen on living either.
Before I fall in love,
I’m preparing to leave her.
I scare myself to death,
That’s why I keep on running.
Before I’ve arrived, I can see myself coming.

(chorus)
I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in.
’cause I got too much life,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

And I need to feel, real love
And a life ever after.
I cannot get enough.

(chorus)
I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in,
I got too much love,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

I just wanna feel real love,
In a life ever after
There’s a hole in my soul,
You can see it in my face, it’s a real big place.

Come and hold my hand,
I wanna contact the living,
Not sure I understand,
This role I’ve been given

FASHION & MUSIC: “Everything Changes” by Staind starring Brie Pinazzo


Music: Everything Changes
Artist: Staind
Model and Photographer: Brie Pinazzo
Biography: Brie Pinazzo has been doing photography for a year and a half and modeling for a year. A Master Photolife photographer, she has real-life experience in the field working with her father as a photographer’s assistant from the time she could climb on a bar stool and sit with him in a darkroom. She enjoys merging fashion with art to create simple images that tell a story.
Fashion: All this model is wearing is the Lambini leotard from Pacadi in Silver. I was feeling down the day I took this picture and the song kept playing in my head. I had taken the picture initially to feature the ring in the picture which is the laughter and spring ring from Freckled Funk. But my mood came though and in the end it was a dark, moody image that I felt told a story and showed a feeling in the moment.
I also wore Paige hair in silver from LCKY as well as the Special Edition Nefertiti skin from Beauty Avatar and topped i with Love-Soul’s Posing nails. I wanted a monochomatic look that gave the overall feeling of saddness and regret. It is something I hope comes through in the photo as it is something we have all felt at sometime.
INFO:This picture was picked for a CONFESSIONS spotlight because of the raw emotion that is just flowing from the model. You can identify with her sadness and feel her pain. Brie Pinazzo has done an extraordinary job with this picture. She is a very talented photographer who creates works of art no matter what the subject is. Feel free to contact her for all your photographing needs including model’s portfolios. You can see more of her awesome work here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/briepinazzo/.

LYRICS:
Everything Changes

If you just walked away
What could I really say??
Would it matter anyway??
Would it change how you feel??

I am the mess you chose
The closet you cannot close
The devil in you I suppose
Cause the wounds never heal

But everything changes if I could
Turn back the years, If you could
learn to forgive me, then I could
learn how to feel

Sometimes the things I say
In moments of disarray
Succumbing to the games we play
To make sure that it’s real

But everything changes if I could
Turn back the years, if you could
Learn to forgive me, then I could
learn to feel

When it’s just me and you,
Who knows what we could do
If we can just make it through
the toughest part of the day

Everything changes if I could
Turn back the years, if you could
Learn to forgive me, then I could
Learn how to feel, then we could
Stay here together, and we could
Conquer the world, If we could
Say that forever is more than just a word

If you just walked away
What could I really say??
Would it matter anyway??
It wouldn’t change how you feel??…

“GOTTA HAVE IT” Manifeste Poses

Manifeste: The ART of Posing.

Everyone knows that great poses are like water to a fish. It is a MUST for models. A new pose store just opened and it is FANTASTIC. These poses are specially made for models by a top model, July Raymaker. The smooth flow of the poses is highly ideal for the runway and there’s a lot to choose from. There are even poses named after Top Models like Diconay Boa and Payton Herron. July promised that she will be making some poses for Male Models but Shhhhhh, don’t tell anyone I bought some female poses. LOL.
July Raymaker also do custom made poses for a reasonable price. Just message her.

CONFESSIONS MODEL SPOTLIGHT: Diconay Boa


Let me introduce to you a fascinating dynamic model with a fierce style all her own, Diconay Boa.

Her love for fashion and creativity shows in every aspect of her Second Life, whether modelling or designing. Her go getter attitude and hard work combined with immaculate fashion styling has rapidly move her in the big league. She is Evane Agency’s and SW&MB Production’s Fashion Director and is represented by a lot of top modelling agencies like Evane Top Model, SW&MB Productions Model, BeStyle Top Model, SuperElite Model, ModelX Top Model and EIMA Top Model!


Let’s get to know Diconay Boa.

Q. Please tell us about yourself how you ventured into the modeling industry.

DB: Well, that’s simple, but this answer has a story, so it will come on a long way! I am connected to fashion since I was little. In the very beginning I always loved to mix and match different kind of clothes, and styles, creating something new and totally ‘me’, so I think I am very conscious about fashion world, not even on SL but on RL as well! Then I started modeling in my Real Life till I was 20 almost! I stopped modeling cause of an accident I had while I was practicing sky. I had surgery to my left knee and after recovering I decided to graduate on Design. Life is made of choices, and I felt Design was my way, so I stopped modeling, and became a Designer, proudly graduated last year! Well, all I can say is that I felt a bit empty after I leave the fashion world, so Second Life has been my escape for what I didn’t became on real life! My modeling carreer in SL came to finish with the emptiness I felt… so I think on it as a continuation on the Fashion Industry.
Runway, photography and all that fashion brings, are my home! I truly don’t see myself doing another thing than this! That’s really my passion!

Q. Please tell us about some of your accomplishments within the modeling industry and describe what would be one of the most defining moments of your modeling career.

DB: Dicconay Boa isn’t famous and don’t seek fame! If Diconay Boa wants to be recognized for something, it would be for her work! I can say that the moments that defined a lot my modeling career were definitely the Pre-Finals for Miss Virtual World 2010… I didn’t made the finals, but it was a sensation I can’t describe! Then I think it was Mimmi Boa invitation to work on Evane as Fashion Director, it was a total honor to be selected by Mimmi to work on one of the best agencies I know on Second Life, and see how Mims trust in me for this role on Evane. Means a lot to me!
Slowly I am conquering the best agencies of Second Life, and that’s truly regarding and a great privilege, like being Evane Top Model & Fashion Director, BeStyle Top Model, SuperElite Model, ModelX Top Model, SW&MB Productions Model & Fashion Director, and EIMA Top Model!
Being designer was quite an accomplishments for me as well :) I started with lingerie, cause every woman loves lingerie, and its one of the my greatest passions, with shoes and other acessories, I can be crazy with them! For now Body Study [my brand] is in stand-by, but will be back soon and better!
Even more proud of my accomplishments I am when we talk about Haiti! I am proud of being one of the pioneers of this idea and one of the execuatives with Leandra Breen, Mimmi Boa and Salvo Waydelich. This tragedy came, and this is the best we can do to help them. Second Life isnt just a way to have fun, but having fun helping same time. This campaign means a lot to me, and I love to help others.
Its very very very regarding too when someone approach me saying I am inspiring to them as well, that not really and achievement I made, but in the end, we had to make something for this to happen so, I feel very proud of myself when someone says I am very inspiring to them, I really feel special :)

Q: You have certainly established yourself well within the modeling industry. Please tell us what you believe are the essential elements to being a successful model. Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

DB: Well, for a start and I think the most important thing above all, is strength, resistance to a ‘no’! All my SL I saw myself fighting some hard situations, and we need to have a lot of strength to achieve the goal we put into our minds. A model has to be faith and trust her/him, and have a lot of determination. I am here, and I never quit!
I was taught that being unique is essential as a model. As well as the style sense… SL is HUGE place, but small same time. Everyone can have your skin or mine. You can have the best skin on second life and the perfect shape, but all of this can be forgotten when you dress bad. Coco Channel said ‘Dress bad and appears a bad dress. Dress amazing and appears a woman’, and this one is my motto! Know the trends helps a lot, be updated, have the knowledge about new releases… all this is very important!
Being reliable is extremely important in the Fashion Industry. A model that fails commitments isn’t welcome in this world, let’s face it! Character, education, elegance, attitude, personality… these are adjectives for models have to consider having to be successful.
The capability of promote herself/himself! The best way to show your resume is yourself personally… you are the best PR that you can ever have!
Be humble. Don’t ‘wear’ a Diva attitude; people will lose respect for you if you use that!
Never reply to envy situations, or rumors, that only will give them reason to talk more about you! In these situations, better keep mouth shut, this people don’t have nothing better to do, so they spread all things about the others, so the best attitude and the way to act, is not acting at all!
Last but not least, be yourself and don’t change ever cause of a big winning, or cause you aren’t accepted on a casting or lost an important pageant or contest! Stay faithful to yourself.
I could be here hours… jeez!

Q. What do you like and dislike about modeling?

DB:I like everything about modeling. Everything!
Runway is my home, I just love shows. I love the photography world as well, I do my own pictures sometimes, and I get a lot of pleasure making them! The contact with designers, and trying to find the best way possible to represent them, the visit stores and see how many choices we have to create something truly unique and outstanding, the experience sharing, helping upcoming models, everything! Fashion world is my world, and I was designed for it, exclusively!

Q. Finally, please tell us what motivates you to be a model. Who inspires you the most and what is your inspiration?

DB. God, I could be hours answering this question, but I can make it a bit resumed… Of course all models have such inspiring people and references, and I have to say I admire a lot Mimmi and Kay. This women are true icons.
I appreciate them a lot, but I have to say, that my main inspiration has been myself. I want to turn myself better every day by my own merit, be recognized cause of being ME! I dress depending on my mood, depending of the style I want to wear, on how the day was for me… I can be inspired by my own creativity, and for just being… me! What better inspiration can I ask?!

Q. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

DB. Jeez… already answered all questions?
Well I said this one time and I will say once more, cause it’s what I truly feel, so: Thank you all those friends I have that trust me and accept myself as I am: Genuine! And thanks most of all to those that envy me, cause I am stronger than ever and for helping me being proud of the person I became!
I want to thank you as well to RicoRacer Flux & Mikey Batriani for this amazing interview! I am really honored to be featured on CONFESSIONS OF A SECOND LIFE TOP MODEL blog. Total pleasure!

Special thanks to Diconay Boa for sharing her experiences and modeling tips with us. Best wishes to all her future endeavors. =) Please submit your comments below.

CONFESSIONS Model Spotlight: Jen Tafler

I am so happy and proud to present to you our next Confessions Model Spotlight: Jen Tafler. She is a bright shining star in the SL Fashion Industry who possessed grace, beauty, and a witty sense of humor. She is hardworking, reliable and someone I’m honored to call friend and family. She is one of my mentors and someone I look up to and completely trust.

Let me introduce to you one fantastic model, Jen Tafler. I am honored and excited as well to WELCOME her as an editor to Confessions of an SL Top Model Blog. She will be an awesome addition and will add a feminine touch to the blog. =)

Q. Please tell us about yourself how you ventured into the modeling industry.

JT. After my first six months exploring SL I came across a runway show at Avenue.  I was so impressed by the models and loved the idea of expressing feeling through a designers creations.  I realized that was what I wanted to do in SL.  I attended many runway shows, became friends with many people in the industry and went shopping for everything I needed.  Once I  had that, I was ready to practice and train hard.  And I haven’t stopped since.

Q. Please tell us about some of your accomplishments within the modeling industry and describe what would be one of the most defining moments of your modeling career.

JT. I recently won 1st Place in the GIA January 2010 Modeling Photo Contest and was one of the few female models to walk in Men’s Fashion Week organized by Siren Productions  Also, I was a 2nd Round Finalist in the SuperElite SuperSearch 2010 Contest, placed 2nd Place at the September 2009 Champagne Contest and selected as the January Model for the DMI 2010 Calendar.  I have also done photo shoots for many designers, most recent was with the talented Ranena Olivier of Ranena Olivier Couture.

Q. You have certainly established yourself well within the modeling industry. Please tell us what you believe are the essential elements to being a successful model.  Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

JT. To be a successful model you need perseverance, a strong will, determination to never give up on your dreams, and to keep yourself open to learning new things always.  Also, enjoy every minute of it.  I believe if you are not having fun, even while training or practicing, then you are losing an important aspect of modeling.  But the main thing to always remember is that you are there for the designer.  It is their heart, soul and sweat that was put into what you’re wearing.  Wear it with grace, fierceness and commitment.

Q. What do you like and dislike about modeling?

I love bringing life and personality to a designers creation.  To add another dimension to a designer’s creation is an honor.  I also love meeting new people, learning and sharing my experiences and making new friends.  I dislike when SL plays games and won’t attach my prims or clothes.  Nothing like being a bald, half-nekkid model on the runway.

Q. Finally, please tell us what motivates you to be a model. Who inspires you the most and what is your inspiration?

JT. To me, modeling is like art.  It’s being creative.  Whether through styling or putting modeling poses together.  This creates a visual expression of how you think the designer sees their creation coming to life.

For me, my inspiration comes from the designers, agencies and every model I have had the pleasure to meet and work along side with.  But I wouldn’t be the model I am without my SL family.  They are always there to support me and give me honest advice.  I value that the most.

Q. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

JT. I am always thankful for the opportunities I have been given and I look forward to the future.  I would like to send a special thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way and even now.  I wouldn’t be here I without you.  There are too many to list, but I know they know who they are.  To my family, I love you always and no ocean or land will ever change that.  Thank you for being there.  :D  xoxo

*Thank you so much Jen for letting me interview you and for sharing with us your modeling experiences.

PS: Please welcome Jen Tafler as an EDITOR to this blog: Confessions of an SL Top Model.
Due to real life, Mikey Batriani has not been able to contribute, so Jen will be an awesome help and will add a nice feminine touch to the blog. =) Welcome & TY Jen.

LYRICS:
You Belong To Me

You’re on the phone with your girlfriend shes upset.
Shes going off about something that you said
Cause she doesn’t get your humor like I do

I’m in the room its a typical Tuesday night
I’m listening to the kind of music she doesn’t like
And shell never know your story like I do

But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts
Shes cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day
When you wake up and find
What you’re, looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why cant you see, you
You belong with me
You belong with me

Walking the streets with you and your worn-out jeans
I cant help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself
Hey isn’t this easy

And you’ve got a smile that could light up this whole town
I haven’t seen it in a while since she brought you down
You say you’re fine I know you better then that
Hey whatcha doing with a girl like that

She wears high heels I wear sneakers
Shes cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you’re looking for has been here the whole time

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why cant you see
You belong with me

Standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know
Baby you belong with me
You belong with me

Oh I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night
I’m the one who makes you laugh
When you know you’re about to cry
And know your favorite songs
And you tell me about your dreams
Think I know where you belong
Think I know its with me

Cant you see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why cant you see
You belong with me
Standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know
Baby you belong with me
You belong with me

You belong with me
Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me
You belong with me

RicoRacer Flux “The Journey”: Okay, I never thought I would make it this far but I am a finalist for the FACE of Moolto. OMG, wow! *Pinches myself* WoW! There were over 250 people who applied and I’ve been picked to be one of the finalist. The competition so far has been extremely tough. I just been through a grueling live interview at the Moolto stage where I’ve been asked how I would compromise with my fellow lovely ladies on who gets the remote and what television show to watch. Lucky for me that I love all types of movies especially chick flicks and tear jerkers. LOL! Hey put it on, I’ll get the popcorn. =)

Our next challenge is even more demanding. I’ve been paired up with the lovely Diconay Boa to create a Moolto slogan, logo, picture and presentation on how to present Moolto as a representative. o.O WIsh us luck cuz we sure are gonna need it.

Please Give Some Love to MR Virtual World 2009: Mr. Nicholai Shepherd

1. Please tell us about yourself how you ventured into the modelling industry.

Hello :) Thank you for inviting me as a showcase model. I first started modeling in Oct 2007 I was self taught because at that time there wasn’t many modeling schools, and the ones that were around would charge aspiring models a lot of money to join which I could not afford.
I started my self training by attending many fashions shows just to get a good glimpse of what was needed to be a top model on a runway and also to get my name noticed within the fashion industry. I think networking is very important aspect to any business plan if you want to make it big time. From then on I just practiced my walk day in day out, I made myself a modeling portfolio and applied to as many fashion agencies I could find, and then just waited for my lucky break.

2. Please tell us about some of your accomplishments within the modelling industry and describe what would be one of the most defining moments of your modelling career.

I became a MODAVIA Supermodel & stylist within two weeks of my modeling career, something that I never expected and left me gobsmacked for quite a while. I will also always cherish the time I spent as a MAD agency model and KMADD stylist, both positions were something I really worked hard for and wanted badly.
My first ever award was the JCNY Male Model Search Award which I won in January 08 It was a golden moment for me and really helped my career move a lot quicker. I think over the years I have succeeded quite well with awards and achievements. My most noted achievement to date as to be winning BOSL Mr Virtual World 09 something that will be Nicholai’s accolade achievement for his remaining future. I was also very pleased to win CheerNo Next Face 09. CheerNo is a designer that really pioneers the cutting edge of SL men’s fashion, he’s so creative and original I truely love the work CheerNo produces.
The most defining moment in my career though would have been my styling involvment with KMADD the power house of male fashion founded by Maddox DuPont & Kirk Claymore. This was something I really wanted and when Maddox DuPont asked me to join his creative styling team I was over the moon. I have learned an awful lot from my time working with KMADD and Maddox DuPont he is such a workaholic but a genius business man and an inspiration to me and many others.

3. You have certainly established yourself well within the modelling industry. Please tell us what you believe are the essential elements to being a successful model. Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

I think best advice is try your best in what you want to achieve and never give up trying, it’s always possible to live your dreams if you make the hard effort it will pay off for you in rewards.

4. What do you like and dislike about modelling?

I like the buzz and nerves of walking a catwalk show, the butterflies in my stomach just makes me what to perform to my absolute best. I also love the challenges and competitions that modeling involves it’s very competitive something which I love about it.
Things I hate is the way some noobie show producers and agency ceo’s treat their models like they are just moving cattle or referring to them as nothing more but coat hangers this really gets my back up. I valve my image and my name that I have worked so hard to get out there within this business and to be looked upon as nothing more than just a cow walking in clothes makes me fire up. Treat me or fellow peers like this and you will see Nicholai the diva unleash lol. But this is a rare and as only happened to me once in over two years or modeling.

5. Finally, please tell us what motivates you to be a model. Who inspires you the most and what is your inspiration?

My motivation is the fun of the game we all love called Second Life. I was a lost soul before I found Second Life. My motivation came from wanting to extend my usage and love for SL by finding an activity that I would be good at and with my real life background in art I found fashion styling and modeling a natural talent for me to occupy myself with. My inspiration now comes from the amazing people in SL that grace us with gorgeous clothes and hair etc I have great admiration for such talented people.

6. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

Thank you again for this opportunity I have enjoyed my time answering your questions. And good luck to every aspiring model and model reading this spotlight interview, I sincerely hope your career lives up to everything you dream for. <3 Nicho

Lyrics:
Sexual Healing – Marvin Gaye

Ooh, Now let’s get down tonight.
Baby I’m hot just like an oven,
I need some lovin’.
And baby, I can’t hold it much longer.
It’s getting stronger and stronger
And when I get that feeling
I want Sexual Healing.

Sexual Healing, oh baby
Makes me feel so fine
Helps to relieve my mind
Sexual Healing baby, is good for me
Sexual Healing is something that’s good for me.

Whenever blue tear drops are falling
And my emotional stability is leaving me,
There is something I can do…
I can get on the telephone and call you up baby, and
Honey I know you’ll be there to relieve me.
The love you give to me will free me.
If you don’t know the things you’re dealing
I can tell you, darling, that it’s Sexual Healing.

Get up, Get up, Get up, Get up, let’s make love tonight
Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, ’cause you do it right
Baby I got sick this morning
A sea was storming inside of me
Baby I think I’m capsizing
The waves are rising and rising
And when I get that feeling
I want Sexual Healing.

Sexual Healing is good for me
Makes me feel so fine, it’s such a rush
Helps to relieve the mind, and it’s good for us
Sexual Healing, baby, is good for me.
Sexual Healing is something that’s good for me.
And it’s good for me and it’s good to me.

My baby ohhh
Come take control, just grab a hold
Of my body and mind soon we’ll be making it.
Honey, oh we’re feeling fine
You’re my medicine open up and let me in
Darling, you’re so great.
I can’t wait for you to operate
I can’t wait for you to operate
When I get this feeling, I need Sexual Healing…

Love Profusion

There are too many questions
There is not one solution
There is no resurrection
There is so much confusion

And the love profusion
You make me feel

And the love vibration

You make me shine

There are too-o-o-o many options
There is no consolation
I have lost my illusions
What I want is an [uh her lyrics are the most complicated of those two]explanation

And the love profusion
You make me feel
You make me know

And the love direction

There is no comprehension
There is real isolation
There is so much destruction
What I want is a celebration

And I know I can feel bad
When I get in a bad mood
And the world can seem so sad
Only you make me feel good

I got you under my skin
I got you under my skin
I got you [everybody] under my skin
I got you under my skin skin skin
