She dove for my body it was head first"

Wherein we hear less about how weird Cameo's "She" is, and hear more - much more - about how freaky she is (sexually, of course). A little surprising coming from such a top-tier R&B act (at the time, 1984, they were one of the biggest bands in black music), but then again, it was "only" on a 12" single. Also surprising: it's rap! For such an established act to embrace rap when it was still looked at askance by most R&B artists seems pretty notable. No matter what the version, however, "She's Strange" stands as an icier-than-Jeezy classic, with its whining synths taking center stage.
