    Default RIP Christina Amphlett of Divinyls

    Although known mostly for the song and video "I Touch Myself" in the US, this Australian band had a larger body of work and more hits than just that one in other countries. I saw them perform twice in the 1980s and Christina Amphlett was such a ball of energy and sexuality that it is difficult to believe she is gone at such an early age, 53.

    Here is a video for their song "Pleasure and Pain." We'll miss you Chrissy!

    An ironically and sadly appropriate song by The Divinyls:

    One of Chrissy's last requests was that this song be used to promote self breast examinations. She had breast cancer.

    Ha! Seems so tame now compared to what's out there! The times they do change, don't they?

    Yes, it is. Great song from later in their career though. Too bad they never recorded a full album's worth of songs from those sessions.
