KROQ's 'Psycho Mike' Shares His Top Five Sexual-Innuendo Songs
Psycho Mike knows a thing or two (or a million) about sex....
Chances are you know Mike Catherwood (a.k.a. Psycho Mike) best from "The Kevin & Bean show" on KROQ. Or you know him from "Loveline," "Dancing With the Stars," or maybe even from when he filled in on "Live With Regis and Kelly." All over Southern California, we all know and love Psycho Mike from something or somewhere.
Since "Loveline" tackles topics from drugs and alcohol to the over-the-top sexy and, at times, over-the-top cringe-worthy, we knew there was no one better than Mr. Catherwood to tap when we were looking for an ultra-sultry list of songs. We recommend playing these songs together with friends--or just with yourself. That's fine, too.
5. Dexys Midnight Runners, "Come On Eileen"
I'm not sure that Dexys Midnight Runners even meant this as a sexual innuendo but, I used to know this girl named Eileen when I lived in San Francisco and she was really hot. She was my friend's girlfriend and she was always really mean to me but I couldn't do anything about it. When I moved down to L.A. and I'd hear "Come on Eileen," I'd always think about making that title come true. But not in a nice way.
4. Billy Idol, "Dancing With Myself"
A lot of people think this song is about dancing with yourself but it's actually about masturbation and that's the type of sex that I know the most about. It's also the type of sex that I've had the most of. I've never actually masturbated listening to "Dancing With Myself" but I plan on it!
3. Sheena Easton, "Sugar Walls"
This song is an innuendo in that it doesn't say, "this is a song about pussy because it's about these sugar walls." But, it's about as blatant as a sexual innuendo as there has ever been. And, it was a massive pop hit but people hated the fact that it was a massive hit because it was about sugar walls. And it wasn't that long ago really but also, people couldn't stand that a woman was being that overtly sexual. Another reason I always thought this song was so cool is that Prince actually wrote this song but he wrote it under the pseudonym, "Alexander Nevermind." The album was out for a while and it took people a little bit to figure out that it was actually Prince who wrote it but it makes a lot more sense because he's the most overtly sexual artist.
2. Ted Nugent, "Cat Scratch Fever"
You can't have a list of sex songs in any shape or form without mentioning "The Nuge." I like that even though this is pretty on the nose, you can still consider it an innuendo coming from the guy who wrote, "Yank Me, Crank Me," "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang," and all of these other songs that are so much more blatant. I also like it because by getting pussy to purr, he compares it to an actual disease. "Cat Scratch Fever" is a real thing where kids get scratched by cats and stuff!
1.Prince, "Little Red Corvette"
This is the best sexual innuendo song in my opinion because it's a great song and it was a huge hit. Even if you think it's about a red car, if you really listen to it, you realize that it's actually about a woman's genitals. It seems crude at first but I always liked the line, "Move over baby. Give me the keys. I'm gonna try to tame your little red love machine." I was like five when that song came out and even then I was pretty sure he wasn't talking about a car. I also knew that Prince was not a Corvette type of guy. He strikes me as a guy who would have a little more class. He's like a vintage Ferrari guy.
