Track ID needed (late 80s/90s popular music) - Reward for the finder!

I'll snail-mail a custom made present to anyone who finds this song.

Here's what I know about the song I'm trying to find.

- It was made in 1996 or earlier, and probably in the 90s.
- It's not by a "grunge-y" band
- It's made by a person/band that was relatively popular and well known, but the song itself is on the obscure side because it contains too much profanity/obscenity to receive radio play.
- It wasn't a hidden track on the album, just a normal track along with the rest
- It's intended to be sex-oriented and not relationship/love-oriented
- He doesn't remember it having featured prominently in any movies

Not much to go on :/

(For the curious, a friend who I'm flirting with said that there was a song a friend in high school played him when he was around 14-15 and if a woman ever sang him this song, he'd make out with them on the spot. It's not even a song that he particularly likes, he hasn't heard it in 10 years, and he doesn't own the album. But I've decided to make it a needle in a haystack personal mission.)

I'd guess it is something off of the end of Broken.

Dave Matthews Band "Crash into me" made in 1996. Questionable lyrics because of the "and I come into you", also post 2001, the crash into me bit was not so cute.

I'd guess something by Sublime

Justify my love by Madonna (i can't find her video.)
According to wikipedia: "It caused international controversy due to the accompanying music video which was sexually explicit and even banned by MTV."

Santeria by Sublime?

"If I could find that heine (?) with that sancho that she's got, I'd pop a cap in sancho and I'd slap her down."

Just to iterate on behalf of the OP:

the song itself is on the obscure side because it contains too much profanity/obscenity to receive radio play.

Does he know the sex of the singer?

do you know if it's a male or female singer?

Prince, “Darling Nikki”?

If not, see if it's on this list of the Filthiest Lyrics of All Time.

Re: Darling Nikki and TheSecretDecoderRing's post - I was 4 years old in 1984, when the song was released, so I don't know if it got radio play or not.

Mr. Bungle's The Girls of Porn (1991), which begins: "Okay, all you pus-sucking motherfuckers out there ..."?

Could it have been that Butthole Surfers track that got some radio play?

9 inch nails: Closer (1994) - pretty well known but fits your criteria.

The Beautiful South's 1996 Track "Don't Marry Her, Have Me" - contained came in a much less clean version on the Album.

Sexy Mexican Maid by Red Hot Chili Peppers? Yeah, just throwin that out there..

This isn't much to go on. :/ Is he 100% sure it was obscure, or at least obscure for the reasons cited? Closer ("I Wanna Fuck You Like An Animal") got ridiculous airtime despite the explicit lyrics, albeit bleeped out. I'm trying to think of something blatantly dirtier, and only Mr. Bungle pops into my head.. but that isn't much of a make-out band, so seems unlikely. Anything to narrow this down would help.

How will we know when the correct song is guessed?
posted by MarvinJ at 4:20 AM on September 15, 2009


Seconding MarvinJ...there are wayyyy too many options out there and how are you gonna know which one is the right one until you try? What if it's wrong? Will you keep trying until you get the right one??

Anyways, this wikipedia article might be helpful.

Yeah, a few more details would be incredibly helpful: male or female singer? Any recollection of the song's style beyond "not grunge," e.g. rock, R&B, pop? Slow or fast? Any remembered lyrics at all?

For example, Madonna and Prince both had entire sex-themed albums released in the early 90s, could be any of those tracks.

Even NSync had a sexy non-single; although it's five years too late for your consideration, just throwing it out as an example. And I would probably make out with anyone who sang "Digital Get-Down" to me.

I vote "At a Medium Pace" off of Adam Sandler's record They're All Gonna Laugh at You!

1993, not "grunge-y", he was a relatively popular and well known performer at the time, the song is way too dirty to receive radio play, but ended up on tons of mix tapes in the mid 90s, it's not a hidden track (14 of 22), and it's totally sex-oriented. On top of all that, were I not happily married and some cute girl sang it to me all these years later I'd be mighty tempted to make out with her on the spot.

Oh man, I had a better song.

groovinkim: in that case you will need to learn to overdub yourself when you whisper in his ear.
posted by rongorongo at 10:43 AM on September 15, 2009


I had a great one, too: Sublime's already been mentioned, but Carress Me Down fits the bill perfectly.

Also, b33j, you mention the lyrics "come into you" from Crash Into Me, but not "hike up your skirt a little more, and show your world to me"? Really?

Seriously, first guess was correct?
