Today I'm going with "She's Tight" by Cheap Trick because the title has at least three meanings for those who don't wanna bother to read the lyrics. Teenagers and ma & pa may enjoy this little ditty as a family, as if they were listening to Mitch Miller.

(A) She's a virgin
(B) She's careful with a dollar
(C) She's drunk as a skunk

"Brain Salad Surgery," not from the album of the same name:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2Iv3IRF3oA

The song itself is basically just a blues in structure, but elaborated to Pluto and back with ELP's ultra-bombastic synth-crazed arrangement.

Some of the stuff you could post back then wouldn't fly these days... That's one of the main things that's difficult in our society: most people today would be shocked by that, but some of the decision takers grew up in an era where such stuff was perfectly acceptable, and now they're in positions of power, but they're influenced by the mindset of their youth.

A lot of the rap stuff that is popular today is a lot more risqué than what we grew up with and what preceded us. :idea:
