What do you reckon is the smuttiest mainstream pop song ever? I reckon 'Relax' by FGTHW must be, er, up there (so to speak).
I know what you mean. It does seem somehow naughtier for sexual lyrics to be snuck under the radar to some extent, even if it's fairly clear what they actually mean.there's something to be said about the switch from smut and innuendo in lyrics to straight-up explicitness - it's freeing that we can now be direct and unashamedly sexual but it seems to have come at the cost of sophistication and style
This is true of course... meanings change and so you can do a kinda knowing cover of something now and imbue it with the new meaning, and yet disavow it by pointing to the old one.true...so, risqué rather than outright smutty. but while that was the original intent, it's often now understood to also encompass anal.
