You’ve heard these songs a million times, you know the words and you sing along; but have you ever actually listened to the lyrics? These songs were written and performed so eloquently that it’s easy to miss even the dirtiest of lyrical messages. See for yourself below with seven of our favorites!
Summer of ’69 – Bryan Adams
Me and my baby in sixty-nine, oh
If you did your Bryan Adams research, you would discover that he was only 9 years old the “summer of ’69,” which raises some questions. In fact, he only titled it that because a friend bet him he couldn’t write a hit song with “69” in the title.
Walk This Way – Aerosmith
I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder/All the times I can reminisce/Ah the best thing lovin’ with her sister and her cousin.
Steven Tyler wasn’t very discreet when he wrote about taking a cheerleader’s virginity. And then apparently hooked up with her sister and her cousin, too.
Can’t Get Enough – Bad Company
Well I take whatever I want/And baby I want you
Questionable intentions there, sounds like things might get rough.
Only the Good Die Young – Billy Joel
You Catholic girls start much too late
Billy Joel wrote the song about his high school girlfriend. And if you listen to the lyrics it tells a story about a boy who is trying to manipulate to lose her virginity.
My Sharona – The Knack
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind/I always get it up, for the touch of the younger kind
Doug Fieger, lead singer of The Knack admitted he wrote the song about a girl he was chasing after, she was 17, while he was 24. Her name was of course, Sharona.
Every Breath You Take – The Police
Every night you stay I’ll be watching you/Oh can’t you see You belong to me
Sting admits this is song about a stalker.
Black Dog – Led Zeppelin
Ah ah child way ya shake that thing/Gon’ make you burn, gon’ make you sting/Hey, hey baby when you walk that way/Watch your honey drip, I can’t keep away
Every single lyric right there is dirty, no need to explain.
