Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker DesertRose: "What song did you hear as a child and then, upon paying attention to the lyrics as an adult, thought something along the lines of, 'My [parents/grandparents/guardians/whatever adults were responsible for your care when you were a child] let me listen to that?!'"

Madonna's "Like a Virgin." I can only imagine that most of the adults around me — including my elementary school principal, who allowed this track to play endlessly on the lunchroom jukebox — just heard the word "virgin" repeated again and again, and figured it must be a song about being chaste, lol.
