Divinyls Singer Chrissy Amphlett Dead At 53: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

I don`t want anybody else
When I think about you I touch myself
Ooh I don`t want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no


Divinyls I Touch Myself Lyrics

"The Divinyls` lead singer, Chrissy Amphlett, died at her home in New York after battles with breast cancer and multiple sclerosis, her husband said. She was 53."


Divinyls was an Australian rock band that primarily consisted of vocalist Chrissy  Amphlett and guitarist Mark McEntee.

The Divinyls was a one-hit wonder, celebrated worldwide for their 1991 "I Touch Myself."

"I Touch Myself" was an unabashed paean to masturbation; I would venture to guess that plenty of guys played with themselves while listening to this masterpiece.

"I Touch Myself" wasn`t the first big hit about the art of self-pleasure, in 1972 Chuck Berry released "My Ding-a-Ling", and in a 1980 the Vapors released "Turning Japanese."

But from a male perspective, nothing beats a song about masturbation sung by one of the hottest women in the world.

Rest in Peace Chrissy Amphlett: You made millions of men all over the world love themselves.
