OTOH, I would love to cover this. Because Elfman > Winger.
man, you TDPRI guys are weird.
Good Morning Little School Girl comes to mind as a song that doesn't pass lyrical muster today.
As we saw with the P--- Melter fiasco, a lot of 80's hair metal songs are out too.
Maybe her birthday was on February 29th?
I was intending to perform (?) "I saw her standing there" at a rare (for me) solo spot...... I'm aged 59 and the opening line felt kinda uncomfortable........ So I changed it to "Well she was just 53, you know what I mean........."
I love when our drummer (we call him Levon) who is a middle aged, 6’ tall, balding man sings the opening line to “Angel from Montgomery” (I am an old woman /named after my mother).
At first I was self-conscious but now I always ham it up and and get very a good crowd reaction when singing the Susan Anne Sully Verse in Don’t You Want Me (I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar ...) in another band.
First, I want to know what kind of rockin', raucous shindigs you guys are playing where people are requesting "Danny's Song" and "Having My Baby"?
The end of the Baby's song "Midnight Rendezvous" he says "Oh I really want to F*** you" as it's fading out. This never got censored on the radio station that I used to listen to.
Everyone probably knows ZZ Top have some sexual innuendo lyrics that always cracks me a grin - Tube Snake Boogie, Pearl Necklace, etc. No idea how these ever got past the 70/80's music police.

I played an open mic recently and a couple of women got up and played and sang some old timey type hymnal things...and actually they were really good. I followed them and sang Sympathy for the Devil...the irony was actually not lost on most...lol. It was quite amusing.
While I like Uptown Funk, I can't really say that the lyrics are appropriate for an elementary school dance.
You mean the same people that warned us that if we played Judas Priest records backwards the debil would command us to kill ourselves?
It was the era of Tab Cola and the Ford Pinto. We were all to blame.
I was going to bring that one up. I just heard it the other night on the radio. Yeah a little creepy even if the singer is barely 20 himself. Of course the Feb. 29th birthday idea kind of makes it OK.
I don't seem to get requests for songs like this. Maybe I should count my blessings.
But, frustratingly, otherwise an absolutely great song and performance. Luckily, in this case it's a lyric that is easy enough to change to a different number without losing the song to any significant degree.
p.s. As for "Seventeen", I was surprised to learn recently that the age of consent is actually 16 in most of the USA: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_the_United_States
And ZZ Top’s song Francine has the object of his affection at only 13!
I’m now guilty of what I hate... posting in a thread without reading it.
The lyrical content of Seventeen aside... the guitar on that song freaking rocks. Reb Beach at his finest. Yep, pure 80s excess... but I would totally rock out on that song to this day, if it weren’t for the lyrics.
My last band wanted to do "Saturday Night Special" but I said I wouldn't sing it. I don't like the message.
I'd like to do "Good Morning Little School Girl" but these days I don't think it would go over too well.
It's been awhile since I sang it but "Aqualung" would be weird to do now too.
I was in a band with a female singer and she refused to do "I'm Ready" because of the first verse.
So much for my Calling Dr Love/Christine Sixteen KISS medley.
I had to go back and listen to that Baby's song and sure enough, you're right. I don't know how I missed that all these years.
But what about Walk on the Wild Side?...specifically:
"But she never lost her head
Even when she was giving head?"
How did the powers that be miss that?
