Intro

The pin up look is a form of art that goes way back to the days before World War II. Pin up is all about the style, the clothes, the hair, the makeup and poses. There's also an important attitude and confidence component. A pin-up girl is a girl that men would usually buy a poster of and pin to their wall or bunk. Historically, they were of famous celebrities, and they came to fame during World War II when soldiers would pin pictures of beautiful women to their bunks or in their aircraft. Ultimately, pin ups have something to do with sexuality and whether the character conveys a sexual charge through that imagery. The character can be smoldering, or fun - but the underlying theme is that the character conveys sex appeal. Nowadays, pin-up girls have evolved into a bit more of a vague style, but they still consist of sexy girls in poses for posters that most guys would pin up. Pinup models, past and present, are all major sex symbols. The thing that people like about pin ups is that the women in them look like they are enjoying themselves and enjoying what they are doing unlike the women in modern equivalents who always seem to look deliberately uncomfortable. Some people also love that there is a sense of playfulness to pin up art that one doesn’t see in other photographs of women.

The Go-Go's - Throw Me A Curve

Lyrics:

Wishing there was less of you? Are you really sure How much less is more Girls are shapely by design Exactly what you've got Is so easy to adore

Clothes hanger lollipop Magazine photo op But I'd rather be a pin-up girl Than zero size

Throw me a curve not a straight narrow line Throw me a curve and I'll show you mine Get the message it's divine Throw me a curve it looks so fine

Microthin is way too in I'm not so sure I'd rather just be me Seems everybody in the world Thinks that x-ray girls Are the only way to be

Clothes hanger lollipop Magazine photo op But I'd rather be a pin-up girl Than zero size Throw me a curve not a straight narrow line Throw me a curve and I'll show you mine Get the message it's divine Throw me a curve it looks so fine


Quotes

“All right, he thought, okay; if thats the way it is; a savagery of anger in him now at the picture. They call them "pin-up girls" and think its cute how "our boys," now that they're drafted, love to hang them in their wall lockers. And then close up all the whorehouses, every place they can, so our young men will not be contaminated.”

“There's a side of my personality that goes completely against the educated & serious woman. The side who wants to be a pin-up girl in garages all across America! ”
