Ever since the days of “Louie Louie,” some people have been paranoid about finding “dirty” songs. But sometimes, the dirtiest ones sneak right past them and become pop hits. Thanks to VH1 and a couple of other sources, I’ve been tipped off to three songs that not only made the Billboard Top Ten, but also were really, really naughty.
The first one was a very popular 1976 disco hit. What wasn’t so well known was that the song was about making a porno movie, and the singer knew her stuff — she’d been a porn star before getting behind the microphone.
The second was a 1982 cheery, pop hit, one of the first songs to have a hit video, too. But buried in this declaration of devotion to her man, this singer offered up all sorts of enticements — including an offering to… um… how can I put this delicately… indulge in a bit of “back door loving.”
The final one was a big hit back in 1979, another catchy love song. But if you paid close attention to the lyrics, it’s no stretch to think of the song as the longings of a pedophile, one who openly brags about getting aroused by much younger ladies.
No prizes this time, but I’m hoping that it’ll take more than the usual hour to get all three songs.
Update: Chris got all three right. In 18 minutes flat. For details, see the extended section.
1) “More More More,” by the Andrea True Connection:
But if you want to know how I really feel
Just get the cameras rolling, get the action going,
Baby, you know my love for you is real
Take me where you want to
Then my heart you’ll steal
More, more, more
How do you like it, how do you like it
2) “Mickey” by Tony Basil
Mickey – now when you take me by the
Who’s ever gonna know
And ev’ry time you move you let a little more show
There’s something you can lose – so don’t say no, Mickey
So come on and give it to me any way you can
Any way you want to do it, I’ll take it like a man.
But please baby please,
Don’t leave me in this jam, Mickey
3) My Sharona, by the Knack
Never gonna stop, give it up,
Such a dirty mind.
Always get it up for the touch
Of the younger kind.
