    Just wait until you actually hear it. Neatly pulls together the two rs of this thread: both rapey and racist.

    Given Eric Boucher couldn't even be bothered to pay his band are you really sure he consulted them all about every line of his lyrics?

    I had always had that song down as being a rare progressive criticism of all things young girl sex?

    It's just your usual litotes so that you can insist you didn't say what you actually said when you're called on it. I fully understood your post thank you.

    I don't know whether they discussed it or not. Which is why I phrased my post the way I did. How could I be sure of it, neither you nor I was present. But being as in more recent performances the n word's been changed for eg black some conversation with someone's taken place.

    That's not surprising entirely dishonest. You used a facetious understatement to imply certainty and are now claiming your words should be taken literally. If you really thought the chance was slight why fucking mention it?

    Liked because I was checking through to see if this was posted.

    "My love for you girl is way out of line...you're much too young girl"

    I'll beg to differ on any doubt lbj.

    The song alone is harmless but when coupled with the video, it's... disturbing.

    what's utterly dishonest is linking the royalties dispute to other behaviour within the band on the basis of er no evidence, especially when the result of the lawsuit was to find inter alia that songwriting credits should be widened to the whole band, making me a bit more confident that a discussion occurred. How confident you ask? Reasonably.

    E2A you're not really interested in this at all, it's an attempt to make yourself feel better when shit's not going so well

    Brown Sugar's days maybe numbered, in airplay.
    Read an article recently where a female journalist was listening to it on repeat to see how problematic it is. She thought it was quite problematic but also said afterwards she came away thinking what a cracker of a song it was too.

    Brown Sugar
    The Rolling Stones
    Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
    Sold in the market down in New Orleans
    Scarred old slaver knows he's doin' all right
    Hear him whip the women just around midnight
    Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good
    Brown Sugar, just like a young girl should
    Drums beatin' cold, English blood runs hot
    Lady of the house wonderin' when it's gonna stop
    House boy knows that he's doin' all right
    You should have heard him just around midnight
    Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good
    Brown Sugar, just like a young girl should
    Brown Sugar, how come you dance so good
    Brown Sugar, just like a black girl should
    I bet your mama was a tentshow Queen,
    And all her boyfriends were sweet sixteen
    I'm no school boy but I know what I like
    You should have heard me just around midnight
    Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good
    Brown Sugar, just like a black girl should
    I said, yeah, yeah, yeah, wooo
    How come you, how come you dance so good
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, wooo
    Just like a, just like a black girl should
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, wooo

    Surprised Roy Harper hasn't featured yet. Lyrics from 'Forbidden Fruit' -

    Baby, won't you play with me ?
    Games that no one else can see ?
    Leanin' over out my window
    Flashing me a mini flower show

    Steal away from mummy, oh there's my little girl
    On the pillow of my tummy give my hair a curl
    Run your fingers under and over, make us a little pool
    And don't forget about tomorrow in the same place after school

    Baby, make me calm your fears
    Let me hold your thirteen years
    In between the silky, love me
    Race my heart and let my tongue rest

    Oh baby I can feel you, see my thunderburst
    Melting us together in the plains of magic thirst
    We can be forever and ever, watching the water fall
    Floating in the lake of all peace after love and after all

    We can be forever and ever, watching the water fall
    Floating in the lake of all peace after love and after all

    Just listened to it again. Do you think it's sung straight? No irony? Gen question.

    Led zepp

    I was a young man, I couldn't resist
    Started thinkin' it over, just what I had missed
    Got me a girl and I kissed her and then and then
    Whoops, oh lord, well I did it again
    Now I've got ten children of my own
    I got another child on the way that makes eleven
    But I'm in constant heaven
    I know it's all right in my mind
    'Cause I got a little schoolgirl and she's all mine
    I can't get through to her 'cause it doesn't permit
    But I'm gonna give her everything I've got to give
    Oh, Rosie, oh, girl, oh, Rosie, oh, yeah
    Steal away now, steal away
    Steal away, baby, steal away
    Little Robert Anthony wants to come and play

    Fuck, I've heard that song countless times and never twigged exactly what it was about. I assumed it was just a rather bad taste, ham-fisted homage to a black girl he'd fucked. Laid out like that, it's really really really horrible.

    Fair enough. The worst of it is the way it's somehow her fault. He's at least acknowledging some kind of wrongness - I find the Led Zep one and some of the others worse, I think. They are just simple celebrations of noncery, really.

    The idea was that the little girl is the illegitimate child of his wife (who tries to win back his affection) and the black slave in the background. He addresses the child as the unwanted result of the affair, not as a seductress. It’s a crap video and everybody was probably high on coke when they shot it but the intention wasn’t to suggest noncery. It would have been more clear had he addressed the performer playing his wife but the kid was cute, so they made her the focus.

    Where did you garner that context from? Was or is it available to anyone who happens upon the song on YouTube?

    There was a Leslie Thomas novel where the 'hero' spied on under-age girls through a peep-hole and had sex with them while their sports teacher. Published 1970. It's difficult to look back and find any justification for this or for some of the songs in this thread. The French say 'autres temps, autres moeurs' but it's just not good enough. Really, with permissiveness (good thing) a certain amount of skeeziness slipped though the net (bad thing) and got away with it.
