Annie (Don't Wear no Panties)

Erykah Badu is the shit! Her creativity and willingness to abandon convention pemit her to create one-of-a-kind music. However, a lot of her stuff is not played on major radio stations. Aside from Baduizm, none of her other cds have received much attention. As we are inclined to purchase music that receives a lot of airplay, I didn't purchase Mama's Gun until a few years ago. Man, I was blown away.

One day, while watching Ms. Badu perform on VH1-Soul, I heard a song that I thought was a joke. As always, the beats and instrumentation were on point, but the lyrics had me in stitches. Nobody believed that she'd actually written a song about a woman (herself) who doesn't wear underwear. So, here it is.
