Songs With Sex-Like Titles That Aren’t About Sex

Songs With Sex-Like Titles That Aren’t About Sex

The Tunedly Team

Sex is a very common topic in our everyday lives. It may not be easily discussed publicly as some other points of conversation like sports or politics, but they are definitely highly prevalent in a lot of people’s thoughts and conversations. This topic is not in any way excluded from music as well. A lot of songs have been written around it, be it as a soundtrack for carrying out the action or as a way of education. The point is music is never shy of sex topics, and it’s perhaps one of the few sceneries where it can be casually mentioned without caution.

As such, having songs with sex titles is nothing spectacular these days and doesn’t in any way create the feeling of any sort of debacle. We are oftentimes introduced to some sexual terms by the music we listen to. Some songs are very well explicitly written and are often aired on the radio frequently. There are also songs that do not in any way possess any word that expresses the act of coition but have been analyzed to have very explicit explanations in their meanings. Some songwriters are even so good at writing songs that directly talk about sex without mentioning the word or anything relating to it in their lyrics. All you do is listen and understand what the singer is talking about.

But there are also a set of songs that don’t meet any of the above-mentioned circumstances. These songs have titles that may indicate sexual activity or something closely related. But the lyrics do not in any way talk about it. They are songs that mean different things entirely from the title and they deserve a special form of attention. That is why we have decided to write about them in this article, to show us that they actually exist, given that a simple google search may not yield the results you’re hoping for. In fact, a search will give results pertaining to the earlier mentioned circumstances. So in no particular order, here are some songs that have a “sex-like” title that is really not about sex or anything like it.

Naked by Goo Goo Dolls.

"Naked" is a song by Goo Goo Dolls. The song was the fourth single released from their hit album A Boy Named Goo after they scored a breakthrough hit with the previous single "Name". It was written by John Rzeznik and Robby Takac, recorded in 1994, and released in January 1996. Contrary to what the title might suggest when initially seen, the lyrics of the song seem to depict loneliness, wanting to be noticed, and eventually not caring about that at all. You can listen to the song here if you wish. Below are the lyrics.

Yeah I'm fadin' And I call out No one hears me

Never been, never felt, never thought I'd say a word

Weighed down, Say it now

You're naked inside your fear

Can't take back all those years

Shots in the dark from empty guns

Never heard by anyone

Never heard by anyone

Yeah I'm hiding in the fallout

Now I'm wasted They don't need me, don't want me, don't hear a word I say

Weighed down, Say it now

You're naked inside your fear

Can't take back all those years

Shots in the dark from empty guns

Never heard by anyone

Never heard by anyone

Inside your head

No one's there

And I don't think I'll ever be

And I don't care

You're naked inside your fear

Can't take back all those years

Shots in the dark from empty guns

Never heard by anyone

Never heard by anyone

Lips Like Sugar by Echo & the Bunnymen

"Lips Like Sugar" is a single by Echo & the Bunnymen which was released in August 1987. It was the second single from their 1987 eponymous album. One of the writers, Ian McCulloch initially had no interest in it, describing the songs as too commercial. "Lips Like Sugar" eventually became a chart success in the UK, Ireland, and New Zealand. The song is one of the band’s most famous songs in America, thanks in part to college radio airplay and its music video directed by Anton Corbijn, which was regularly broadcast on MTV's 120 Minutes program. The song has since been covered by multiple artists and has been positively received by critics. It was written by Will Sergeant, Ian McCulloch, and Les Pattinson. The song is about an enticing girl who floats like a swan and has kisses that are sweet like sugar. But she's an elusive bird, meaning when you think she’s yours she leaves. The song and its lyrics:

She floats like a swan

Grace on the water

Lips like sugar

Lips like sugar

Just when you think you've caught her

She glides across the water

She calls for you tonight

To share this moonlight

You'll flow down her river

She'll ask you and you'll give her

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

She knows what she knows

I know what she's thinking

Sugar kisses

Sugar kisses

Just when you think she's yours

She's flown to other shores

To laugh at how you break

And melt into this lake

You'll flow down her river

But you'll never give her

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

She'll be my mirror

Reflect what I am

A loser and a winner

The king of siam

And my Siamese twin

Alone on the river

Mirror kisses

Mirror kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Lips like sugar

Sugar kisses

Naked Girl by The Velvet Team

Smile

You will be my shield

You'll be the only thing

Anyone ever sees

Kill

Crush me, break my will

Cease the endless rats inside the walls

That squeak and scratch away

And keep me awake

This is my vice that i will break

This is my christ in arms today

This is my golden chance

To fight the odds that never seem to change

Ne'er seem to change

Ne'er seem to change

Today

Love

Don't hurt me this time

Be for real

Or kindly let this

Lonely soldier be

Fear

My old friend disappear

Leave me to regard the world

In better ways

Than what is wrong

And what cannot be

Don't say you'll change

Heart Boner by NSP

Ninja Sex Party (often abbreviated as NSP) is an American musical comedy duo consisting of singer Dan Avidan and keyboardist Brian Wecht. They formed in 2009 in New York City and are currently based in Los Angeles. Their music typically consists of rock or synth-pop-oriented humorous songs, frequently on the topics of sex, seduction, love, or fantasy, which is why one will have every reason to feel their song Heart boner from their 2018 Cool Patrol album is about sex. It is actually about being deeply in love with someone. You just might enjoy the song and here are the lyrics.

When I first looked in your eyes

You were more than just a beauty to me

All my senses shot straight up

I was rock hard emotionally

The fact that you and I could plow

Is something I haven't even thought about

Starting now

I've got a heart boner for you

I stand before you stiff and true

I wanna blast a load of feelings onto you

This heart boner's for you

You've helped me grow into a man

My shallowness is a thing of the past

I want to slam you with my empathy

And then I'll rail you with my class

You've helped me find maturity

I'll be your wiener king, tee-hee

Tee-hee

I've got a heart boner tonight

Feel my love pants growing tight

I wanna plug you with respect all through the night

I'll bust a nut of joy and light

Hea-hea-hea-hea-heart boner

Hea-hea-hea-hea-hea-heart boner

Got a hea-hea-hea-hea-hea-heart boner

H-h-h-h-heart boner)

You are the love that I pursue

Do you feel the feels I feel for you

There's so much we have yet to do

Now jump me like a kangaroo

This heart boner's for you

I stand before you thick and true

I'll shoot a wad of gleaming romance just for you

This heart boner's for you

It's all for you

Every throbbing inch of my heart is just for you

Screw you for judging me
