Top 5 Pedophilia songs!
5. Outfield "Your Love"
The jury's still out on this one, but I always took it as the fact that Josie is the dude's wife, she's out of town, and he's stalking the neighbor's daughter even though he likes his girls "a little bit older"... a stretch? The video doesn't really elaborate, but it does have an EXTENDED GUITAR INTRO WHHHAAAATTT!
4. The Slackers "Pedophilia" (YT)
Pretty self-explanatory. 3rd wave ska you may have given rise to some terrible bands, but the Pietasters and the Slackers will always be OK in my book. Can't really say the same for Mephiskapheles, the New York City Ska Jazz Ensemble, the Skoidats, the Insteps, Mustard Plug, the Allstonians, or JC Superska.
3. Rick James "17" (12" Mix) (mp3)
Another pretty self-explanatory track. "17" exploded my mind when I heard it in college, but back then irony was all fresh and new. Nowadays if I hear some guy like "oh man the lyrics for 17 are hilarious" I'm like "yea they are... if you're 20 years old." What is my problem???
2. Oingo Boingo "Little Girls" (music video)
Danny Elfman WTF! You know how when you go record shopping you look for those early records by 80s bands thinking they were probably way punkier and awesome before they had their first hit? Hmmm???
1. Benny Mardones "Into The Night" (music video)
This song somehow peaked at #11 in 1980 on Billboard, then nine years later Benny Mardones was like "I guess society now has a much more liberal view of grown men fucking children, so I'm going to release this record again (at which point, it will peak at #20)."
