Political correctness has never been more dominate in society and for better or worse, we can’t deny that these catchy songs deliver an awkward message.

“He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)” by The Crystals (1962)

The Offending Lyric: “He hit me (da-da-da-ah) and it felt like a kiss (felt like a kiss)/He hit me (da-da-da-ah) and I knew he loved me/If he didn’t care for me, I could have never made him mad/But he hit me (da-da-da-ah) and I was glad”

“That’s the Way Boys Are” by Lesley Gore (1964)

The Offending Lyric: “When I’m with my guy and he watches the pretty girls go by/Well it hurts so bad deep inside, I wish that I could die/Not a word do I say/I just look the other way/Cause that’s the way boys are/That’s the way boys are”

“Happy Birthday Sweet 16” by Neil Sedaka (1964)

The offending lyric: “Tonight’s the night I’ve been waiting for/Because you’re not a baby anymore”

“Young Girl” by Gary Puckett & The Union (1968)

The offending lyric: “Beneath your perfume and make-up/You’re just a baby in disguise/And though you know that it’s wrong to be /Alone with me/That come on look is in your eyes, oh”

“Young Girls Are My Weakness” by The Commodores (1974)

The offending lyric: “Young girls are really mellow/You don’t believe me then just try this fellow/(I know what to say when they call me on the phone)/You call me back when your dad leaves home”
