It seems like pop music has gotten dirtier and dirtier over the years, doesn’t it? Maybe it just seems like that because Miley Cyrus is riding a giant penis during her Bangerz tour and Nicki Minaj refuses to wear clothing on stage. But taking a look back at the songs of our youth, they were pretty damn salacious, too!
Granted, when we were little kids, singing in the back of our parents’ car, we had no clue what we were saying. When LL Cool J‘s song “Doin’ It” came on, we had no clue we were literally singing about having sex. We just couldn’t wait for that chorus to come around (“Doin’ it, and doin’ it, and doin’ it well”). Did our parents not hear us?!
Some songs are a little more in-your-face sexy, like Nelly “Hot In Herre”. C’mon, we were singing about taking our clothes off. Yet as racy as the concept was, the song reached #1 on the charts in 2002.With that in mind, take a trip back and listen to the hottest songs of the last 20 years. It’s amazing that these songs made it on the radio, let alone how high they ranked on the charts!
