We’ve all been there; innocently singing along to one our favourite pop songs when someone says “you do know what this song is really about, don’t you?” Let’s be honest, 99% of the time, no, we totally hadn’t realised that these fun, innocent-sounding songs were actually full to the brim with disgusting innuendos. The horror!
One of the most recent culprits is Ariana Grande‘s and Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Side to Side’. As Ariana sings “I’ve been here all night, I’ve been here all day and boy, got me walkin’ side to side” and Minaj talks about riding “dick bicycles” there’s not really any room left for doubt about what this song is about.
The pop world is FULL of innuendo-filled songs and we’ve dug out some of the best. Apologies in advance, as we may be about to ruin a part of your childhood with this list.
Los Del Rio – La Macarena
As soon as the first few bars of this iconic pop song begins, it’s pretty much impossible to stop yourself from jumping up and throwing out those classic dance moves. But have you ever stopped to actually listen to the lyrics? It is essentially a story of a woman on a night out trying to pick up a man. “Move with me, chant with me, and if your good I’ll take you home with me”. But that’s not all! In the second verse she says “don’t you worry about my boyfriend…now come on, what was I supposed to do? He was out of town and his two friends were sooo fine.” OMG, plot twiiiiist! The scandal is so very real. Slag!
