And here's me thinking that modern pop stars should make more creative effort to disguise the filth they sing about - currently in the charts are lyrics about "take a ride on my disco stick", something about sucking a lollipop, and that "poke-her-face" song that's been around for ages. Despite the lift based video, I don't think when the Sugababes sang "push my button" they meant elevators, or did they?
Any where else but the UK and "push my button" is just a promo tool - "have a badge" they are saying.. obviously.
Gosh, you mean there were normal people in those days, too?
great research! dig the dirt!
Well I'm sorry, but that's just rude ...
also tonight, random surfin the net has lead me to a claim about the content of a Girls Aloud song, that quite frankly is brilliantly filthy. "Something Kinda Oooh" is a song that both my wife and 5 year old happily sing (esp in the car), and was a top 5 hit in the last year or so. But what's it about? "Something kinda oooohJumpin on my toot tootSomething 'side of meWants some part of you, oohSomething kinda ooohBumping in the back roomSomething 'side of meWanting what you do, ooooh" Draw your own conclusions..........
