Sex and Lyrics

Are you looking for some inspiration for writing lyrics, or maybe choosing a catchy song title? Well, this post will surely NOT help you. :) But it is guarantee to give you a few good laughs on a bad- hair day.

To do that, I’ve took the effort of searching through the internet for some of the whackiest, craziest lyrics or song title just to entertain you guys and also myself, partly because I’m also having a bit of a writer’s block on my songwriting endeavour.

The thing I like about these songs is not just that they are downright meaningless, absurd and stupid, but in the midst of that, the songwriter still took the effort to make it aesthetic in some way, as if to preserve a certain artistic value in it. 

Let’s start with this number by the band nine inch nails, Closer to God. The first time I stumbled upon this song I thought that it was a Hill Song or Gospel song of some sort. See for yourself..

Some highlights from the lyrics in this song:

You let me violate you
You let me desecrate you
You let me penetrate you
You let me complicate you

I wanna fuck you
I wanna taste you
I wanna feel you
I wanna be you
Just like an animal

It’s quite obvious from the lyrics what this song is all about..

Semisonic did another nice song called Get a Grip. A motivational song asking us to get a grip on our life?? Or so I thought….

Some highlights from the lyrics:

Get a grip on yourself you know you should
I got a grip on myself and it feels good
Get a grip on yourself take my advice
I got a grip on myself and it feels nice

When the lights come on and the party’s through
There are always a few with nobody to do
Well now don’t despair
You’ll eventually get there

If you’re looking for someone to get a grip on you
First you gotta get a grip on yourself it’s true

hhmm… I really oughta think twice next time I ask someone to get a grip on themself. :)

Check out this next tune by A Perfect Circle, called Thinking of You. A typical romantic tune?? Think again..

Some highlights from the lyrics again:

Lying all alone and restless
unable to lose this image
sleepless, unable to focus on
anything but your surrender

You better mean it in a proper way next time you tell someone that you are thinking of him/her. :)

These are just a few whacky lyrics I found, a few hours on the internet and I guarantee you will find much much more.
Fusion has been a major trend in music nowadays. We have fusion of rock and jazz and soul… and basically everything. I wonder does that include the fusion of lyrics and sex?? What’s our music going to evolve into in future??
We never find these elements in the old days, may it be classical, jazz or folk.
Perhaps the most pathetic classical song I can think of is a composition by the great Beethoven, Pathetique Sonata. Don’t ask me why, the title says it all. :)

 If you know of any whacky lyrics, please do share it with us in the comment section, it will sure brighten up our day. Until then .. Enjoy and Have Fun …..  :)

    yeah, I guess you can say they are the most straight forward among the songs discussed in this post. Especially on the “I wanna fuck you” line.. :P
