Song of the Day - I Touch Myself - Divinyls



Anyone who was around in 1991 surely remembers this controversial song.  Well, in some sad news, Divinyls singer Christina Amphlett passed away yesterday at the age of 53 at her home in New York City.  The singer had been suffering from MS, which was diagnosed in 207, and breast cancer since 2010.  Ironically, the song takes on a whole new meaning these days as the singer expressed a wish that it would remind women to perform breast examinations on a regular basis.  To read the full story n Christina, check out Yahoo News.  In the meantime, rest in peace Christina, and thank you for your music.

  1. I was about 10 in 1991, so I don't know in what year I first heard this one, but I still enjoy it. sad to hear of her death, sounds like her and Mama MB had a lot in common, at least health wise :/

  2. Oh, do I remember this song. My pubescent daughter loved it, and sang it around the house. Sad to hear of this singer's illnesses and death.
