    Everytime I ask a question in here I get answers by the truck load, but those are physics questions. What I'm looking for now is the name of a song. It's the instrumental associated with strip tease. That old burlesque tune. Anyone know what it's called and where I can find it?

    No, the one I'm thinking of has no words. It's probably 50+ years old. Its a raunchy trumpet tune strippers play while they take off their clothes.

    It's called "The Stripper." Wonder why.

    Are you talking about the one they used in that shaving creme commercial from years ago? ("Take it off. Take it ALL off..."?) If so, I think that Holly is right - it IS called "The Stripper". Try googling "The Stripper".

    Wait till your family is around before you try googling it. I'm sure they'll want to help you :wink:

    lol, that wasn't the one I was thinking of, but it is the one I should have been thinking of. Thanks. I feel like an idiot though. I've been googleing striptease, strip, burlesque etc.

    You may be thinking of "Strip Polka" from WWII, or Twirly Burly, aka Twirly Whirley. Or "Melody for a G-String." Some old waltzes were altered for burlesque music, too. Be careful searching, you can have some nasty sites show up.
