You tell me! I named the song after the album title, Bare Bodies Bare Assets - infact written nearly an entire year after the acoustic collection was released in 2000. The front cover shot was of a seedy XXX strip joint in Chicago so I went 'Half Nekkid' to continue the theme - music stripped down to its bare bones... an acoustic guitar and voice! I always wondered whether listeners thought I was singing 'Arses' instead of 'Assets', so when it was recently mistaken for 'Essence' I thought it may be a good compromise. What do you think?
