Songs that don't quite say what they mean but you get the idea. I'll start you off with this one
Always Crashing In The Same Car ~ David Bowie
not actually about crashing cars...
This one isn't so subtle.
This is NOTHING about parenting, and probably not even about dancing.
Gave up on entendres after working out the song title and settled for straight out feeeelth
the bard of Snodland, the late Judge Dread, probably warrants a mention or three
e.g. "Donkey Dick" (about Richard, who looked after the donkeys) and "Up with the Cock" (about working on a farm and having to get up early)
Pretty much the entire recorded output of AC/DC
I would do anything for love (but i wont do that)
A homage to wanking from the Everly Brothers
The story goes that Serge Gainsbourg (infamous for "je t'aime, moi non plus") persuaded a rather naive teenager (France Gall) that this song was all about a little girl who loved aniseed lollipops. When she became aware of the (oral sex) double entendres throughout the song, she was extremely embarassed.
Neither "she bop" nor "dancing in the dark" are about dancing.
...beaten to it...lets go with this one...
blondie's "the tide is high", "contact in red square"
Whenever I hear this, I think that David Coverdale is singing "Anal Love in the Heart of the City". Will that do?
Or there was this one. My brother took me to this tour, Coverdale claimed it was about a chest of drawers
With Whitesnake even the name of the band is a double entendre.
Is it about bumming then?
That reminds me of the fab game where you replace the word heart with the word fart in your favourite songs.
"Why did he have to be a fart-breaker?"
"Don't go breaking my fart - I couldn't if I tried.."
A song about cake....
In a similar style - Ruth Brown and the story of how she aint gonner be giving away her .... arm chair.
"its made for comfort, built for ware and tear ...
ain't it easy on the eye? Guaranteed to support any weight or size.."
It's about wanking, apparently. With a casually racist hook.
Separate names with a comma.
