Contest: Sex Gone Wrong...Songs Done Badly

My friend Ryan (Wordsmithonia) is hosting this awesome contest! Here are the details:

This is a contest that grew out of a discussion I was having with a few friends the other day. After listening to Lick It from Roula in my friends car, we got into a argument about how bad the song truly is. We all loved it when it first came out, a thousand years ago, when we were in our early 20s and going out all the time, not so much anymore. Now I listen to it and find it horribly silly and immature. The sadder thing for me is that with all the songs about sex, which there are thousands of, most of them are not that sexy. A lot of them are just down right absurd.

So this is what I want to do, I want to hold a contest asking everyone what they view as the worst "sex song" ever made. It can be done right silly to the point you can't take it seriously, written with such horrible analogies and comparisons you never want to have sex again, or just down right gross and nasty that it leaves mind numbing images in your head. Even if it's the video that makes you blush and cringe at the same time, feel free to nominate it for that reason as well.

So Here Are The Rules: The contest will run in two stages. The first will be the nomination stage which will run for two weeks ending on 05/01/2010 at 11:59 PM. Anyone who wants to nominate a song will have to write a blog post detailing the contest and either a video or a link to a video that showcases the song they are nominating. Please write a short reason for why you think the song you are nominating is the worst of the lot. Come back to this post and leave a link to your post.

The second stage is that I will pick my 5 "favorite" nominated songs which will be announced in a second blog post. You will then have1 week, starting on 5/2/2010 and ending on 5/08/2010, to vote for your pick for Worst Sex Song Ever.

And Here Is The Reward: The winner will get a $15 itunes giftcard.


Here is my nomination:

I loved this song back in the day, but now that I'm older...and a mother...it really gives me the creeps.  Why?  Because it's about a grown man lusting after a teenage girl...ICK!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I saw this over at Ryan's blog and thought it was a pretty awesome contest!
    THanks for commenting on my blog design. I've been a little involved with trying to get all the tweaks out that I haven't been commenting so much ! Sorry!

    I really like it and feel it fits me to a "t"!

    Take care,

  3. Oh, I remember this song! Of course I was a teen then and it sounded really cool; older man, young girl. Now it's got pedophile and statutory rape written all over it.

  4. I was just listening to the oldies station the other day ( I mean the really oldies station!) and there was a song that was popular in, I think, the sixties that was also about an inappropriate relationship with a very young girl. How did I never notice that before? Yuck! Fun contest!

  8. OMG
    SO true!
    Isn't it amazing how songs change when you're old enough to understand the hidden (or not so hidden) subtext?

    Diamond Girl has always grossed me out when someone explained to me what he was referring to.
