Most of us just sing songs and pay no mind to the meaning or even really think about the lyrics. Songs you didn't realize were inappropriate as a kid include everything from rap tunes to upbeat, cheery pop singles – or even these songs you shouldn't have been singing in childhood.
It may seem really obvious now that "December, '63 (Oh, What a Night)" is about a dude having a one night stand and popping his cherry, but, as a kid, maybe it's not. We hear the upbeat, funky song at a party or a wedding and dance around to it without really paying attention. What exactly does Neil Diamond mean when he sings, “reaching out, touching you, touching me?” Did anyone ever stop and ask, “What is the English translation to the Macarena?”
And those are just a few of the secretly scandalous songs that may ruin the innocence of your childhood. Read on to discover more, and vote up your favorite songs that you also didn't know were wildly inappropriate as a kid.
