Don’t You Miss That Old 1970’s Porn Groove Music?

There’s something missing from modern adult films these days. It’s those funky guitar and wah-wah pedal heavy soundtracks from the 1970’s and part of the 80’s, where those films had that unique brand of funky music that was once so characteristic. Some films like SEXWORLD had a unique and haunting masterpiece of funky guitar jazz, where the funk guitar sound was slowed way down, but also accented with that familiar wah-wah pedal sound, as the lead guitar when through a unique guitar chord progression. Another film of the era made use of a funky version of Black Sabbath’s, “Paranoid”.

Some early 70’s porn like DEEP THROAT managed to careful edit the sexual scenes to the music. Gerard Damiano took great pride in how he edited the music and the footage together, and the quality of his work was one reason the film became one of few porn films that ever earned critical praise among the mainstream media among some movie critics. DEEP THROAT only cost $22,500 to produce the film itself, but the soundtrack cost an additional $25,000 to produce, but was a key component that made this a pretty enjoyable adult film classic.

THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES actually had one of the greatest of the early porn years soundtracks. One song from the soundtrack album, “Trio In The Round”, actually has been used in mainstream radio and TV extensively, because it is such a fine piece of music.

While some mainstream funk guitar artists like Johnny “Guitar” Watson were impressing the musical critics among the mainstream of music, some unknown artists were also putting together some terrific funk guitar music, but remained unhailed as musical geniuses because their work was for the porn industry. But, now a few recent release Cds are beginning to compile some of the greatest porn groove music of the era and give some unknown artists a little praise for their great musical creations. YouTube actually has a rather extensive number of searches for old porn groove and funk music. You need to check out the theme from SEXWORLD in particular as one of the best, but a number of other funk classics also stand out as great creations as well. Some of this music was free form funk of the era at it’s very best.

DEBBIE DOES DALLAS, AMANDA BY NIGHT, IRRESISTIBLE, and many other films from a period of the early 70’s to part of the 1980’s before the Edwin Meese Justice Department attempted a new crackdown on the adult film industry, had many memorable standout soundtrack songs that seemed to improve the sexual images and make the action scenes much more intense.

One mainstream classic movie that really improved a sex scene with hard hitting raunchy music was FORREST GUMP. The sex scene that was punctuated with Canned Heat’s, “Let’s Work Together” and is a real movie classic moment for example.

Raunchy funk music has seemed to go out of style these days. But, for a period, porno groove funk was an important component in the success of more than a few of biggest adult film hits of the early 70’s on through part of the 1980’s.
