Bryan Adams’ song “Summer of 69” became an instant hit when it was released nearly 4 decades ago but it turns out that the meaning behind the lyrics is a little different from what we first thought.
And, this isn’t the only innocent-sounding song with a surprisingly scandalous meaning. So let’s take a look at some of the most shocking…
“Only The Good Die Young”
Billy Joel really messed us up with this one. It’s a song about convincing a Catholic virgin to sleep with him.
He really went there…
“Come out Virginia, don’t let me wait. You Catholic girls start much too late.”
“Virginia” is the Catholic school girl that Joel is trying to get with.
A pure, religious virgin that Joel is trying to convince to come out of the church and play with the bad boys because you know, only the good die young.
One person commented on the lyric video and said “I sang this song once for a church song contest… I was banned from the competition.”
Well, now we can cross this song off of the church playlist.
