Another boundary-pushing song in LaBelle’s back catalogue is the Hendryx-penned ‘Going Down makes Me Shiver‘, with its arguably obvious allusion towards oral sex. (This was released in 1976, remember!) It could be directed at a lover of any gender and is a soulful tribute to desire and pleasure.
YouTube image descriptions: Video begins with the song title and act in white on a brown/maroon background, followed by a fade in of the cover of the 1976 album Chameleon. This is mostly light blue with a back shot of Sarah Dash, Patti LaBelle and Nona Hendryx across the bottom. The shot fades into the back cover: a front facing picture of a laughing Nona, Patti and Sarah. Nona is notable by her white space-agey skull cap/head-dress with a lizard crest through the middle. These images slowly alternate until a picture of Sarah, Nona and Patti in full costumes at 6.07. Sarah wears a (possibly long) white skirt, light blue bra top, large silver pendant and shaggy cropped jacket with light blue fluff and an open orange collar. Nona wears a silver/white all-over body suit and skull cap with large high feathers sprouting from the shoulders. Patti wears a light blue textured armour-like dress with a taselled skirt over a black long-sleeved top. She also wears a matching light blue hat with a very long thin taselled part sticking up from her head, tied under her chin. This is followed by another sequence of the album cover before a black and white head and shoulders shot of Nona, Patti (forefront) and Sarah in silver collared outfits.
