Question of the Night: What would your stripper anthem be?

We asked the cast of ”Magic Mike” what tune would put them in the mood to strip

Posted on

”I gotta go with the one I picked out for the movie: ‘Calling Dr. Love’ by Kiss. It was rock & roll. It had a great rhythm. And after seeing Channing dance, I did not want to touch hip-hop.” —Matthew McConaughey, who plays club owner Dallas

”I would go for comical. ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’ by the Proclaimers. I just couldn’t take myself seriously while stripping.” —Alex Pettyfer, who plays newbie stripper Adam

”I actually did it in the movie. ‘Pony’ by Ginuwine is maybe the one song I would actually strip to if I had to dance in real life. I am a hip-hop lover and there are obvious moves for that song.” —Channing Tatum, who plays Magic Mike

”I like the idea of using ‘Like a Virgin’ [by Madonna]. I think the theme would be a hit with the audience and yet it’s also a little tongue-in-cheek.” —Cody Horn, who plays Mike’s squeeze Brooke

”There’s this awesome song by the Weeknd called ‘Wicked Games.’ It might be the sexiest song I’ve heard in years. It is just raw and visceral.” —Joe Manganiello, who plays Big Dick Richie
