We’re nothing if not classy over here at D+T. Prompted by the revelation that the song “Sweat A La Long” by Inner Circle had some dirtier-than-usual undertones, two staffers decided to come up with the penultimate list of tunes that may or may not be (but so totally are) about, um, that. Jump to listen.

Inner Circle, “Sweat A La Long”

Most Telling Line: “And if you cry…I’m gonna push it, push it, push it some more”

Salt n Pepa,”Push It”

Most Telling Line: “Push it real good.”

Nine Inch Nails, “Closer”

Most Telling Line: “You get me closer to God.”

DuJour, “Back Door Lover”

Most Telling Line: “Lying on your back staring up at the moon.”

Gordon Lightfoot, “Sundown”

Most Telling Line: “If I find you creepin’ around my backstairs/sometimes I think it’s a sin.”

The Doors, “Back Door Man”

Most Telling Line: “Oh, yeah, I’m a — yeah, I’m a back door man.”

  5. “Turning Japanese” is about masturbation, NOT anal sex. The whole songs about looking at the picture and masturbating.
