The Flashback song today came out in 1995 by Merril Bainbridge. “Mouth” is her biggest hit to date peaking at #1 on the Canadian Top Singles Chart and #2 on the US Billboard Top 40 Chart. The has often been referred to having a sexual theme.
However Merril has said that “Any sexuality on “Mouth” was not deliberate – it was definitely not a sexual song. It’s just honest – about a relationship, how you feel in a relationship. Sometimes you feel you’re in control and the next thing, your insecure – it’s the role paying thing. To me, it’s not about straight up sexuality. It doesn’t bother me if people connect with that, because obviously it’s there, but it wasn’t something I was aware of”
