"Big Bottom" as written by Rob Reiner, Michael Mc Kean, Harry Shearer and Christopher Guest....
The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin'
That's what I said
The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand
Or, so I've read.
My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo
I love to sink her with my pink torpedo.

Big bottom
Big bottom
Talk about bum cakes
My gal's got 'em.
Big bottom
Drive me out of my mind.
How can I leave this behind?

I saw her on Monday, twas my lucky bun day
You know what I mean.
I love her each weekday, each velvety cheek day
You know what I mean.
My love gun's loaded and she's in my sights
Big game's waiting there inside her tights.

Big bottom
Big bottom
Talk about mud flaps
My gal's got 'em.
Big bottom
Drive me out of my mind.
How can I leave this behind?

    General CommentIn the greater context of the film in which this song appears, a great amount of meaning can be derived from this song. Primarily we see a woman constantly compared to objects and having her assets commented on. As the film itself is a satire, the song, too, is (obviously) meant to be satirical.

    I would like, however, to mention the symbolism at the end of the first verse. I think these two objects are expressive of the nature of love, both sexual and romantic. A flesh tuxedo could be considered a very disturbing thing, just as a pink torpedo could be an absurd thing. Love can be quite disturbing and often quite scary, just as it can be absurd. Love also causes people to perform in scary and absurd ways.

    (This analysis was previously written for a lit class, so forgive me for sounding so trite.)

    General CommentI think "Almighty" reads a little to into things. It's fucking Spinal Tap. It's about fucking big girls. No hidden meanings. Not ever song has to have some deep and powerful meaning. Some shit is just for fun.

    Anyway - I had this song on my computer for about 3 years before I watched the movie. Then I recognized Chris Guest about 5 minutes before the movie ended and I'm like...wait...this ISN'T a real band??!!

    Embarassing.

    General CommentYeah that is embarrasing. This song makes fun of so many rock acts of the 70s. Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls" as mentioned above. And the subject of using sexual metophors in lyrics like Robert Plant used to do with Led Zep. But one very orginal approach is having the 3 overlapped basses which sounds a lot better than you'd think it would. Although this song is supposed to be a joke, I think the lyrics are pretty fuckin' brilliant.

    My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo.
    I love to sink her with my pink torpedo.

    Love that line. Spinal Tap was a great ficticious band.
