Six Great Songs That Are About Prostitution

Published by at 7:20 am under Entertainment,Music

They call it the oldest profession: prostitution.   Is it so bad?  Is it so wrong for a man or woman to pay for sexual services?  I mean hell when you take a girl out on a date and you hope she puts out is that not some form of prostitution?

You think Hugh Hefner giving girls in the mansion an allowance isn’t prostitution?  Give it a rest.  We’re all whores in some way shape or form.  And it’s nice to know that musicians make us aware of it.

Here are six great songs about prostitution….

“Bad Girls” – Donna Summer

“Hot Stuff” and “She Works hard for the money” were probably the most well known from this album but Bad Girls was not a distant third.    This song was a huge hit.  Oddly enough Donna Summer kind of looked like a prostitute on the Album cover.  I’m quite certain that was intentional.  In any event this song’s been used in songs of today and will continue to shine for years to come.

“Killer Queen” – Queen

Freddie Mercury did waste any time in explaining the songs meaning, “It’s about a high class call girl. I’m trying to say that classy people can be whores as well. That’s what the song is about, though I’d prefer people to put their interpretation on it.”  Yeah I’d say that’s pretty blunt.

“Sweet Painted Lady” – Elton John

This song is about a sailor who’s “back on dry land once again” with lots of money to eagerly spend on pros.   And however you’d like to interpret it, “Sweet Painted Lady” contributed a great deal to the album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.  Well, drugs were probably the biggest contributor but you know how it goes.

“The House of the Rising Sun” – The Animals

Many debate the true meaning of the title, arguing that it could be a euphemism for a whorehouse, a jail, a slave plantation or a specific establishment in the French Quarter in New Orleans. The most famous version of the song was by the British-Invasion-era band The Animals, who maintained it was an old English folk song emigrants brought to America. I maintain that it was about the oldest profession in America.

“X Offender” – Blondie

Come on.  Just call the song Sex Offender.  Actually that was supposed to be the title but to no one’s surprise Blondie’s record label wasn’t exactly thrilled with it.   In any event this song is about a “street walker” who falls in love with her arresting police officer.  Isn’t that romantic?

“None of Your Business” – Salt ‘n Pepa

I just like the video because it has girls in mud in it.  Whee!

    “She Works Hard for the Money” wasn’t on the same album as “Bad Girls” and “Hot Stuff”. It came out four years later.
