The most politically incorrect lyrics in classic hit songs that you would never get away with these days
ONCE upon a time you could sing about (really) young love, kissing your teacher, casual domestic violence and killing your girlfriend and no one flinched. Here’s a bunch of old songs that wouldn’t get past today’s more politically correct ears.
ROD STEWART — Tonight’s the Night
A No. 3 hit in Australia in 1976, even at the time some radio stations found the blatant sexual overtones in this song problematic. Throw in the ‘virgin child’ reference for extra eww factor. The songwriter: R. Stewart. Watch the video below if you’re unsure what Rod’s referring to with his spread your wings and let me come inside metaphor.
Suspect lyrics: “C’mon angel, my heart’s on fire, don’t deny your man’s desire, you’d be a fool to stop this tide, spread your wings and let me come inside. Don’t say a word my virgin child, just let your inhibitions run wild, the secret is about to unfold upstairs before the night’s too old.” Comment below what you know about political incorrect lyrics: at One Happy Island
