Is It Bad...

... that I've been listening to the Moulin Rouge Soundtrack and the kids love the song Lady Marmalade?

Yes, a song about a prostitute. Something seems so wrong about that.

And yet?

I feel confident they have no idea of the subject matter.

In fact, just yesterday Zach was dancing around singing "Solar system, solar system..." instead of "Soul sister, soul sister, better get that dough sister."

I also seem to recall dancing around to very inappropriate songs as a child. Did I have any idea what I was singing (if we may call what I did singing) about?

No. I did not.

Anyone remember Feel Like Makin' Love by Bad Company?

One of my favorites. I was somewhere around the age of 7-9. While I did sing the actual words? I had no idea what I was talking about. Naive, I know.

Let's say it together... IN.A.PPRO.PRI.ATE.

"Solar system, solar system..." Will rank up there with "...S'cuse me, while I kiss this guy..." as a lyrical mystery!

Down here in Texas there's a certain country song that my son's friend likes to sing, and every time I hear him, I cringe...

The lines are about how it's been helping white people dance, and cause a few fights and such things as that. Embarassing!

Bwa-haaa! You just made me remember that, at age 9, I used to roller skate on our carport with my best friend to a disco album that included the song "Lady Marmalade." I remember singing every single world...we even tried to fake the French stuff. I guess my folks were just clueless.

Well at least some of it is French. Voulez-vous la couche avec moi ce soir? I remember asking my French teacher what this meant in high school and I was shocked, SHOCKED I tell you.

have you ever listened to the words to "Greased Lightning" from the movie Grease? My mom took me to see that on my 8th birthday -- I watched it a few years ago and was appalled at those lyrics! Yikes!
