Sex

October 3, 2021

This week Jim prompts us to share a song where someone is having, talking about, insinuating or hinting about sex. There are a lot of songs about sex, and I’m pretty sure that nearly every band or songwriter has one. Even the Beatles are guilty: Please, Please Me and Happiness is a Warm Gun are two examples and you can find more. The Beatles were horny!

While there are a lot of songs dancing around sex, or leaving the interpretation up to us, there are three artists who, in my mind, leave no doubt: Barry White, Teddy Pendergrass and Prince.

Of course I’m going to go with Prince because he’s Prince. Unafraid of ‘controversy‘, Prince was the boldest and most honest of all. He said what was is his mind without fear.

Here’s Sugar Walls. Prince wrote this in 1884 for Sheena Easton. The song ranks #2 on the Parents Music Resource Center’s (PMRC) “Filthy Fifteen” right underneath Prince’s Darling Nikki. The song was banned from radio play in some areas and the video was banned in others. Personally, I’m surprised that there wasn’t a filthy fifteen just for Prince. Had no one at the PMRC listened to Sister?!

My sugar walls
My sugar walls

Where I came from there’s a place called heaven
That’s the place where all the good children go
The houses are of silver, the streets are gold
But there’s more where you come from, my sugar walls

(My sugar walls) ooh (my sugar walls)

Blood races to your private spots
Lets me know there’s a fire
You can’t fight passion when passion is hot
Temperatures rise inside my sugar walls

Let me take you somewhere you’ve never been
I can show you things you’ve never seen
I can make you never want to fall in love again
Come spend the night inside my sugar walls

Take advantage, it’s alright

I feel so alive when I’m with you
Come and feel my presence, it’s raining tonight
Heaven on earth inside my sugar walls

Let me take you somewhere you’ve never been
I can show you things you’ve never seen
I can make you never want to fall in love again
Come spend the night inside my sugar walls

I can tell you want me, (my sugar walls) it’s impossible to hide
Your body’s on fire, admit it, come inside (my sugar walls)
Ah (my sugar walls) oh
Come inside (my sugar walls), my sugar walls (my sugar walls)
Come spend the night inside my sugar walls (my sugar walls)

      I’m not sure. Remember the last scene in North by Northwest? The train going into the tunnel? Who knows what Sheena was doing on that morning train!

        Sheena was in the ’80’s…we have a pretty good idea. 😂

    Prince was the master of the sexual innuendo.
