Offensive songs that everyone seems to be fine with for some reason.

Blue (or Next) - Too Close

About getting a chub while dancing with a girl. “She” even sings “I feel a little poke coming through on you”!!!

Baby, when we’re grinding
I get so excited
Ooh, how I like it
I try but I can’t fight it

Oh, you’re dancing real close
Plus it’s real, real slow
You’re making it hard for me

All the slow songs you requested
You’re dancing like you’re naked
Oh, it’s almost like we’re sexing

Yeah, boo, I like it
You know I can’t deny it
But I know you can tell I’m excited, ooh, girl

Step back, you’re dancing kinda close
I feel a little poke coming through on you
Now girl, I know you felt it before you know I can’t help it
You know what I wanna do

The middle made me think these were all individual songs. Was wondering what was wrong with Dancing Queen.

:grinning: but while we’re on the subject of Abba:

You’re so hot, teasing me
So you’re blue but I can’t take a chance on a chick like you
That’s something I couldn’t do

There’s that look in your eyes
I can read in your face that your feelings are driving you wild
Ah, but girl you’re only a child

Well, I can dance with you honey
If you think it’s funny
Does your mother know that you’re out
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that you’re out

Take it easy (Take it easy)
Better slow down girl
That’s no way to go
Does your mother know

Take it easy (Take it easy)
Try to cool it girl
Take it nice and slow
Does your mother know

I can see what you want
But you seem pretty young to be searching for that kind of fun
So maybe I’m not the one

Now you’re so cute, I like your style
And I know what you mean when you
Give me a flash of that smile (Smile)
But girl you’re only a child

Well, I can dance with you honey
If you think it’s funny
Does your mother know that you’re out
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that you’re out

Take it easy (Take it easy)
Better slow down girl
That’s no way to go
Does your mother know

Take it easy (Take it easy)
Try to cool it girl
Take it nice and slow
Does your mother know

Well, I can dance with you honey
If you think it’s funny
Does your mother know that you’re out
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that you’re out

Well, I can dance with you honey
If you think it’s funny
Does your mother know that you’re out
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that you’re out

Well, I can dance with you honey
If you think it’s funny
Does your mother know that you’re out

Good use of it over that anti drink driving campaign ad though.

The Darkness:

All I wanna do is spend a little time with you,
But your’e so young its obscene,
I’ll just keep biding my time until you put your little hand in mine,
Oh i can’t wait for the day when you finally turn 16,

There are so many rats on a sinking ship,
There’s so much of you, I can’t wait,
To get to grips, when your halo slips, Oooh!

How dare you call this love,
Ooh thats what they say,
It’s that urge you gotta fight!
How dare you call this love,
When it flies in the face of all that is good and is right, yeeah!

You’ve got it all and your’e always my first port of call,
This is the happiest i’ve ever been,
And i know i should wait,
But your laying it all out on a plate,
And i’m just a pawn for nature and what is to be,

There are so many rats on a sinking ship,
There’s so much of you, I can’t wait,
To get to grips, when your halo slips, Oooh!

How dare you call this love,
Ooh thats what the say,
It’s that urge you gotta fight! Ow!
How dare you call this love,
When it flies in the face of all that is good and is right, yeeah

Is everyone fine with The Darkness?

Travis as well

Also recently heard 36D by the Beautiful South which is so misogynistic it made the sole female band member leave

Never heard this one but i always hated Perfect 10 for being objectifying. Just looked up 36D and it’s much, much worse.

Completely forgot Perfect 10 as well, really weird choices by them

That is gross but the Vandals are a bit of a comedy band so I imagine thats just out to shock rather than seeming sincere like Travis/The Darkness etc

Absolutely, it still gets played regularly on local radio too, if I hear that diddly little organ intro it instantly gives me the :nauseated_face:

I’d also not heard 36D before, awful business

I’m certainly not going to listen to check, but don’t the female vocals and lyrics in Perfect 10 balance out the male leching? Absolute filth from what I recall

Wikipedia named two other songs as also being responsible for Briana Corrigan leaving (Mini-Correct and Worthless Lie) so it seems like there was something of a pattern

I don’t think they balance it out, no. The parts that allude to penis size are very male gaze-y - a man’s idea of what women like, presented in a way that will appeal to men.

Weird one with The Darkness (who I can’t stand) but I think there’s an element with them of satirising 70s rock bands and then becoming that thing, so hard to know how “sincere” it was, but the efnd result is very much the same.
