Sexually Explicit Numbers

When one talks of scandalous rock numbers, the most sexually explicit number that comes to mind is definitely the song by Peter Gabriel. Yes, you guessed it right, we are referring to ‘I want to be your sledgehammer’ ; in my opinion, this song steered the average social conversation towards the erstwhile taboo topic. I think it is very important for us to be able to impart the correct sex education to our children, and this is where Gabriel actually ended up assisting society as a whole. Instead of adolescents going astray and getting educated from inaccurate sources, this song sums everything up in a nutshell; everything about birds, bees, pollination and fertilization is covered brilliantly, and matter-of-factly, without making it sound lewd or cheap even once. I personally believe that this was and still remains one of the gems of rock music, and I’m an official fan-boy of Gabriel for life!
