DAVID ROSE, The Stripper, 1962

The Stripper written by David Rose is  the most famous striptease song.

The Stripper was composed by Rose and recorded in 1958. It was not until its use in the movie Gypsy in 1962 that it became a smash hit, as it was originally used as a throwaway B side to his single, Ebb Tide. The Stripper features especially prominent trombone lines, giving the tune its lascivious signature, and evokes the feel of music used to accompany vaudeville striptease artists.
