Artists like Madonna will not be included, as sex is a common theme in her music #10: Relax (Frankie Goes to Hollywood) Prepare to see this 80’s classic in a whole new light, While most listeners aren’t aware of the background of this highly controversial single, Let’s just say that the song was found on an album called Welcome to the Pleasure Dome. Although the band was denied the song’s sexual lyrics due to heavy controversy, the track’s music video only confirms it’s subject matter. Reaching platinum status in the U.K. and winning best british single at the BRIT awards it’s no surprise that the controversial nature of the song had a large effect on the tune’s success #9: Whistle (Flo Rida) Here’s a shocker for all you innocent Mojoholics: Flo Rida wasn’t exactly singing about his days as a referee When he asks you if you can “Blow his whistle” Are you still not sure how to? Well, Flo Rida lays down in detail How it’s done. Many were quick to spot Flo Rida’s message from the start, but innocent listeners failed to recognize the symbolism Behind lines such as “stroke your little ego” Oh Flo Rida, you charmed millions with your summer jam of secret messages But we’re not fooled. #8: Crash into me (Dave Matthews Band) For years, women have been touched by Dave Matthews’ poetic lyrics of a man in love, but perhaps they didn’t know that said man was creeping on his precious through a window That’s right, shortly after requesting a better view of um, a woman’s legs, the song becomes a little less subtle exposing the narrator’s motives So, don’t even think about using this creepy production as your wedding song, unless of course you want some confused wedding guests #7: I’m so excited (The Pointer Sisters) This early 80’s dance pop tune is so powerful that listeners completely lose control of rational thought and get straight funky especially when played in a public setting Yeah, you might think it’s all about sweet embraces and the excitement of a new love But, I’m so excited is a detailed document about being excited for a sexual encounter First, she sets the date, then, she lets her intentions be known And finally, she requests her partner to move real slow Until the sexual fantasy is complete Try and listen to this one the same way again #6: Crank that Soulja Boy (Soulja Boy Tell Em’) While the Pointer Sisters made people get down with a groove, Soulja Boy created a social dance phenomenon that spread across the world What few understood, however, Is the reference to a superhero by the name of Superman Okay, so some of the lyrics ARE painfully direct But Soulja Boy’s reference to the man of steel is actually A reference to a bedroom practice In fact, you’re probably better off googling it yourself instead of having us explain it step by step Warning: You’ll never be the same and probably feel slightly disturbed. #5: Sledgehammer (Peter Gabriel) Thanks to one of the most popular and innovative music videos of all time, Peter Gabriel took home nine awards at the 1987 MTV Music Video Awards The song is just one massive sexual innuendo after another cleverly using everyday objects to hide the song’s real meaning That’s right, this is a man who asked you to open up your fruitcakes and then call him the sledgehammer Of course, given the jolly music video It doesn’t really mean that, right? Hmm…. #4: Barbie Girl (Aqua) Oh sweet Barbie doll, You made friends with millions of girls over the years But then you grew up and became a sex symbol Well, that’s what Aqua had us believing Much to the chagrin of Mattel Singer Lene Nystrøm took on the role of Barbie and sang about her plastic world in which Ken could undress her everywhere The lyrics actually poke fun at real life Barbie girls And society’s influence on women as sexual objects And are full of sexual innuendos #3: If You Seek Amy (Britney Spears) Okay Mojoholics, repeat this title to yourself three times And you’ll find out why it’s on our list. If you still seek the truth, however, We’ll tell you. This song is about sexual intercourse Surprised? Britney Spears tried to pull a fast one on her listeners or at least tried to make them laugh Lyrically, If You Seek Amy has Spears searching for a friend named, you guessed it, Amy Which is either completely brilliant or completely mad given the fact that all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to “find her” #2: Ticket to Ride (The Beatles) Who said the lovable lads from Liverpool Couldn’t put some risqué content in Their music. Go ahead and hum it to yourself one more time before we shatter your childhood memories Drum-roll, the fun-loving Ticket to Ride is actually about Hamburg prostitutes Yes, the Beatles played thousands of shows in the German city before traveling to America, and ladies of the nights carried the actual tickets to prove their health and, we all know the true meaning of taking someone for a ride so, there you have it, just don’t tell your mother. Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions #1: Y.M.C.A. (Village People) Yeah, here’s something to think about the next time you see your family members cackling with glee and dancing to this classic anthem The lyrics are a double entendre for sexual hookups at the good ol’ Y.M.C.A. It’s no accident that the Village People Specifically identify a spot where a young man can hang out with all the boys So, remember this at your next wedding celebration Long before the concept of Tinder, There was an actual place for the same kind of connections The only difference is, we’re not waving our arms in the air to a song called Tinder.
