I'm just gonna cut to the chase, folks: Listening to old music is truly one of my favorite things to do in the world. There's nothing I love more than discovering "new" tunes released before 1990 and making playlists out of them.
But sometimes when I listen to these songs, I discover that they're unfortunately very problematic (and I know I'm not alone in this musical experience).
For example, you probably thought that the Beatles' 1965 hit "Run for Your Life" was a catchy tune, but after looking up the lyrics, you discovered it conveyed a violent message toward women and a total disrespect for their boundaries.
Or perhaps you recently gave the Vapors' 1980 hit "Turning Japanese" a listen, and realized it definitely doesn't hold up today. Community user buddleia pointed out: "This song reeks of racism, with the song allegedly being about the 'squinting face' one makes while climaxing."
And on a personal note, I'll never understand why people still sing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" from the 1949 movie Neptune's Daughter, considering its deeply problematic message about disregarding consent.
Whatever it is, we want to know. Tell us the most problematic song released before 1990 that you've ever heard of (and why it's so bad) in the comments below.
