My Favorite 1970’s Songs About Sex…

Ya’ll – the 1970’s had plenty of songs about sex, sex, and nothing but sex. I’m a child of the sexy seventies – Qiana blouses, bell bottoms, crocheted hats over waist-length hair, barrettes and hair ribbons, rollerskating to disco…

Were we so innocent back then to imagine anything so salty and sensual, or were we swayed naïvely by the the sticky sweet melodies and just never noticed??

Here are some of my faves:

Meri Wilson – TELEPHONE MAN (you can have a ding-a-ling!)

Foxy – GET OFF (Tie me up at your place, I can love you crazy)

Mouth & MacNeal – HOW DO YOU DO? (and then we can “na nah na nah!”)


Alan O’Day – UNDERCOVER ANGEL (is this song about masturbation?!)

Tony Orlando & Dawn – HAS ANYBODY SEEN MY SWEET GYPSY ROSE? (about a stripper)


Nick Gilder – Hot Child In The City (uh prostitute?)

Sammy Johns – CHEVY VAN

Starland Vocal Band – AFTERNOON DELIGHT

Jay Ferguson – SHAKEDOWN CRUISE (you can squeeze the sails, you can lick the decks!)
