Oh Carole by Smokie...she was not 16 if you know what I mean....should been recorded by Gary.

Mexican girl by Smokie is a bit suspect too

Juanita came to me last night and she cried over and over
Ooh, Daddy I love you you know and I think it's the moonlight
She looked so fine, well she looked alright and she moaned
Ooh, Daddy move over
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Anything with 16 in the title!

Perfect day by Lou Reed had a darker undertone (drug taking).
I'll have a shower and then phone my brother up

What about " We Don't Need Nobody Else" by Whipping Boy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2NqJ8t02Y0

Great tune but incredibly dodgy lyrics (in today's context)

I hit you for the first time today
I didn't mean it
It just happened
You wouldn't let me go to the phone
You wanted to make love and I did not
Now I know the distance between us
Christ we weren't even fighting, I was just annoyed
Silence and you started to cry, that really hurt you said
Yeah and you thought you knew me


At the time they were critical darlings, I remember a big article in the Melody Maker praising their honesty. I don't think you would get away with writing a song from the point of a domestic abuser today. I don't know if that is an advance or not, because it is a great (but difficult) song.

Hot Chocolate's 'It started with a kiss' is pretty dodgy if you cut it off here...

It started with a kiss, in the back row of the classroom
How could I resist the aroma of your perfume
You and I were inseparable, it was love at first sight
You made me promise to marry you, I made you promise to be my bride
But you were only eight years old

In fairness, one more line would have made things clear.

We Are Young by Fun is only a few years old. Itís about a guy who sees his girlfriend talking to a police officer about a scar he gave to her a few months back.

Nor The Cult's song 'Rain' talking about the weather!

The Cult's 'Go Outside' is a catchy dreamy summer song, but the video, cleverly interwoven with old actual footage of the Jonestown cult, is touching and quite creepy, showing as it does people who would shortly be dead.
