8 September 2021 - Cyndi Lauper - She Bop

12 year old me did not know this song was about female masturbation.  I just knew that I loved the song.  And yet this song was on the PMRC's "Filthiest 15" list of truly filthy, filthy songs.  That's right.  The "Parental Advisory" sticker on some albums is largely due to this song.  

It was, despite that, a huge hit song.  And why wouldn't it be?  It's darned catchy.  The video, which is probably part of the song's overall appeal, is considerably more wholesome than this filthy, filthy song. 

Is it more obviously filthy in its acoustic version?  Maybe.   It's more obvious to me that I should have realized what the song was about at 12.
