Damn, that changes the song in ways I would not have thought of.....eeeeewwwwwww!!! kinda brings out that coming in through the out door thing though. Shite he's gross!


Led Zep beat Prince to this one by about 7-8 years.....I've always looked for the Satanic in the title however which is more in line their assumed image :lol: can't say I'd made any connection to Prince's music in quite that regard, but I guess its not that huge a jump given his persona and style

I think someone at Billboard has their wires crossed - either that or they have some major Freudian issues going on... :crazy:

I agree. It used to be the born again Christians finding satanic references that weren't there in all the good songs, now it's a new generation of ultra-Freudian sex addicts trying to convince us that everything is a sexual double entendre. Maybe they're suffering from too much of the Urban Dictionary version of Rasberry beret!

You can read the lyrics at http://www.lyricsfreak.com/p/prince/raspberry+beret_20111286.html. The hat is just a hat, the door was just a door, regardless of whether "using the out door" can be a euphimism for anal sex. Another euphemism for the same thing is "dirt track riding", but I'm sure there are quite a few vorbers who can say they've been dirt-track riding without compromising their rectal virginity.

The "sexiness" of the song is not smutty inuendos about sexuality, the narrative of the song is that a strange girl came into his shop, they went on his motorbike to Johnson's farm and had sex in the barn; it wasn't the best sex but he would do it again the same way if he saw her again (maybe she's avoiding him because he performed so badly?).

Heck, Kiss had a song about backdoor sex 35 years ago - and one about making paster casts of male body parts :D

I'd always assumed they were baking enthusiasts:

Your custard pie, yeah, sweet and nice
When you cut it, mama, save me a slice
Your custard pie, I declare, it's sweet and nice
I Like your custard pie
When you cut it, mama... mama, please save me a slice.

I thought the raspberry beret was an ice cream flavour, and if its not it should be.
