Sexy Song Lyrics #1

Related image

Okay so this has nothing to do with books but I was thinking about song lyrics and it occurred to me just how many songs are about sex. Or love, or both. Now the idea of love songs is of course nothing new but it's kind of amazing to me just how much we are listening to/ making music about love, in all its varieties. Then as I was thinking of lyrics I thought-  were songs in the past more sexual? And that led me to think of some examples, which of course... I'm going to share. 

So... thoughts. Is popular music now more about other things than just love and sex? Or is it still that way? What are your favorite songs about love or... you know? 

Montrose - Rock Candy 

But you're rock candy baby
Hard, sweet and sticky 

Lady Gaga - Bad Romance 

I want your psycho, your vertigo shtick
Want you in my rear window
Baby you're sick, I want your love
Love love love, I want your love

The Bangles - In Your Room

I love it in your room at night 
You're the only one who gets through to me
In the warm glow of the candlelight
Oh I wonder what you're gonna do to me  

Dorothy - Bang Bang Bang 

I'd do you where you stand
So take a look at me 

Lay your head down
Down, down

The Divinyls - I Touch Myself 

I love myself, I want you to love me
When I feel down, I want you above me
I search myself, I want you to find me
I forget myself, I want you to remind me 

When I think about you, I touch myself 

Prince - Darling Nikki

She said how'd you like to waste some time 
and I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind  

Whitesnake - Still of the Night  

Now I just want to get close to you
Taste your love so sweet
I just want to make love to you
Feel your body heat  

Foghat - Slow Ride

Slow down , go down, got to get your lovin one more time
Hold me, roll me, slow ridin woman you're so fine

So there you have it- some of my picks that came to mind. And since there are a ton more I'll be doing a Part II of this post. I'm sure you can't wait. :)  


  1. I love this post! Yes, so much music is about love, romance and sex.
    Bad Romance is one of my favorite songs by Lady Gaga. I love that Whitesnake song too. I'm looking forward to Part II

  2. I like the songs, especially Bad Romance. It's one of my favorites by Lady Gaga. Have a great week!

  3. lovely music...
    thank you for sharing videos

  4. I miss Pour some sugar on me, from Def Leppard. Regards.

  5. Oh, so retro. I think we can dig into just about every pop song and find something sexual. I don't think we can get away from it. After all, sex sells.

    Darlin', is it cool
    If I'm stubborn when it comes to this?
    I guess we're in time
    If you're getting yourself wet for me
    I guess you're all mine
    You're sleeping in this bed with me - Cinema by Harry Styles


    Here's to a good week where the power won't go out and the streets will still be good to drive in. I still need to do a little more Christmas shopping. Thanks for the cool post!

    The Book Group
    Cherry Blossoms
    Better Left Unsaid

  6. I don't listen to a ton of new music, but I feel like maybe older music was about more than just love/sex? I mean, there was plenty of it, and I think most songs are about those two topics.

  7. Lady gaga's bad romance clip is perfect. Thanks. Have a great week.

  8. Haha, funny you should mention this. I was watching the Dio documentary over the weekend and someone interviewed remarked how he bucked the trends and wrote about things other than sex. It was such a thing with 80's metal especially.

  9. You could probably do a lot more than two posts about songs that mention love or sex! ;D I do love that Whitesnake song.

  10. Some good ones. One that always sticks in my mind is AC/DC from the song Walk All Over You..."Take off your high heels and let down your hair/Paradise ain't far from there"

    Another song that I like that is just pure sex is "It's Alright" by Madison Avenue!

  11. Algunas las conocía a otras no. Te deseo una buena semana. Te mando un beso.

  12. Great topic and song choices! I think older and newer songs are both probably mostly about love and sex. It's funny how many songs I used to sing along to as a kid without really understanding the lyrics and then listening to the lyrics properly as an adult and realizing what it was really about :)

  13. Great post and I love all of the songs you chose. I can't think of a single song that isn't about love and/or sex, haha!

  14. Can I suggest "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood? 😅
