In the Star Wars extended universe, Sy Snootles & the Rebo Band were
purveyors of a style of intergalactic pop music style known as
"jizzwailing". i suppose Lucas is intimately familiar with the history
of american black music.
i'm not making this stuff up:
i've always been amused by the roots of the terms "Rock & Roll" and
"Jazz", because my own tastes don't immediately associate the
conventions of those genres with sexuality.
but hell, if pornographic cinematographer's slang can enter onto
"American Idol" without so much as a second glance, any association is
possible i suppose: http://www.msnbc.com/news/743584.asp scroll down to

maybe the looping community _does_ need a raunchy sexual term to fly as
it's banner, then the genre term will last forever and be dissasociated
in the mind of the listener with it's root. and then the genre umbrella
(like jazz and rock) will be so generalised that anything can fit in it
(like jazz and rock).
i don't want to be on that committee, though.
