Animotion – Obsession

The Liberal Party of Canada used this 1984 song on the campaign trail for the 1993 election (which it won and formed a majority government).

It is a bizarre choice for a middle-of-the-road political party, given the sexual nature of the lyrics.

The song was used in the film A Night in Heaven, for a scene in which a male stripper pushes his crotch into a woman’s face. It was also on the soundtrack to the movie 9 1/2 Weeks, probably only remembered for a sex scene involving food. It’s been used (albeit after 1993) in the violent video game, Grand Theft Auto.
