To not want to listen to men singing about making people orgasm

I am talking about the newest song by the latest X factor monkey, I don't know his name.

At 3pm on the school run the LAST thing I want to hear is vulgar lyrics about cumming and sex.

I hate it.

Tbh I just find it more sad than anything that so many songwriters lack the imagination to write about anything else.

I rather like songs to be about sex and/or love. And I don't mind explicit lyrics as long as it's not hand in hand with violence.

I don't find it vulgar at all, and I tend to be quite prudish in many ways.

Carmina Burana. Medieval poetry. Set to music in the 1920's by Carl Orff.
"That I may loose the chains of her virginity" being one example of the lyrics and their reference to sex. It's nothing new for music to be about sex, in fact it would appear to be quite old.

Remember the whole Britney "If You Seek Amy" incident?

Now that was subtle grin

I distinctly remember a song 'I'm horny' knocking around in the 90's which I realised was inappropriate as a young teen but my younger DSis sang it at full volume.

I love Bruno Mars and even though that song is a bit urgh I still think he's lovely. But I also have Azealas 212 album on my playlist ( which cannot get played when the kids are in the car).

Wallison I think you just proved the point that TheSmallPrint made, it's always those songs I see quoted on threads like these.

And there have always been absolutely loads of explicitly sexual songs out there - from songs about having sex in the showers of the YMCA to Donna Summers simulating orgasm, to Marvin Gaye's own special brand of 'healing', to Chuck Berry's ding-a-ling, to the frankly bizarre Eurythmics 'sex crime' etc etc. Pop and rock music is supposed to be raunchy and dangerous; it's supposed to be the kind of music that parents turn off the radio when it comes on.

Wallison Sat 09-Nov-13 19:39:27

That version wasn't played on the radio though.

TheSmallPrint Sat 09-Nov-13 09:33:33

And before we get the calls to turn the radio off again, why can't we have good music without the language? It's not like its impossible to make good music without telling someone they'll give them something big enough to tear their arse in two.

I'm 43. And I stand by what I said, it's easy to point out songs here and there in the 70s 80s 90s that were sexual and I think it's easy to point them out as they were few and far between - note the same songs get referenced everytime a thread like this comes up. My point was its becoming harder to turn down the odd line here or there because a lot of songs now have quite strong sexual references but more worrying is the aggressive sexual content rather than innuendo.

I haven't got a problem listening to songs myself but I have two DSs and I don't think it's great for them to hear this stuff. I'm not Mary Whitehouse btw.

Squeaky but there is a world of difference between innuendo and in your face sex lyrics. And back in the days of our youth it wasn't every other song on the radio was it

When was your day then? What thepig said above is very true.

Songs don't tend to bother me, mostly because the genre I listen to can be a bit graphic. I do rather love Mindless Self Indulgence but with song titles like '2 hookers and an 8 ball' you sort of know what you are getting. That said, I don't expect anything by MSI to chart or get local radio play any time soon.

I think when mine were small I'd always choose a little more wisely what was on in the car, and I'd hum over the offending lines rather than sing them. I recall DD first starting to listen to Panic At The Disco though and the line 'the Grooms bride is a whore', only she totally misheard it and sang horse. To this day the grooms bride is a horse in this house.

I guess I was a bit easier going because I recall the sheer horror of my Mother marching me back to HMV with a vinyl copy of Guns N Roses 'Lies' my Aunt had bought me for my 14th birthday. Cracking album, language was a bit 'interesting'. I was mortified so I swore I'd never be quite as harsh on my own children. Of course as soon as my pocket money came I re-bought the album, I just bought it along with a double gatefold album and put it inside grin

Bruno mars has small man syndrome.

Ah Wallison... Soundtrack of my life! confused

Wallison Fri 08-Nov-13 18:29:44

<All these pop stars think they are fantastic lovers don't they..>>

I guess songs about erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and small cocks wouldn't really be obvious best-sellers though, would they?

Lvcat Fri 08-Nov-13 17:52:58

I got pearl clutchy around that "peacock" song Katy Perry did, mostly because she appeals to younger girls so much
It went something like
"I wanna see your peacock cock cock cock cock cock"

I had this image of little girls singing it and it send me over the edge.
confused So wrong confused

All these pop stars think they are fantastic lovers don't they..... hmm hmm

I only found out recently that Madonna was singing about her, aherm, groove.

Read the thread and would like to contribute Voulez vous coucher avec moi? Back in the '70s most children learnt French at school and know what that meant.

SaskiaRembrandtWasFramed Fri 08-Nov-13 16:23:27

Haven't read the whole thread, just wanted to say that until I was about 25 I thought Golden Brown was about sunbathing.

PuppyMonkey Fri 08-Nov-13 16:05:03

You know that ain't no shit
We'll be gettin' lots of tit
In Greased Lightning...

I remember being quite gringrin when I read what John Travolta was really singing in my Grease photo book.

BerstieSpotts Fri 08-Nov-13 15:55:49

Nope, sorry, I think it is worse now. I don't mind sex references at all even if they are filthy but a lot of pop songs are just gross.

Bruno Mars is obsessed with his dick, and all the things he can do with it.

drudgewithagrudge Fri 08-Nov-13 15:39:55

I remember Mary Whitehouse getting all worked up about Let's Spend the Night Together by the Rolling Stones years ago.

Even Classic FM is not safe to listen to. Ravel's Bolero makes me blush

DismemberedDwerf Fri 08-Nov-13 15:12:41

'unskinny bop' isn't about dancing?
Oh I was a naive teen. grin

Also the thought of having sex with Bruno Mars makes me feel physically ill.
