Between the Lines, Episode 10

Your friendly host Aatira is back to pull the veil off from some of the biggest lyrics in music. Take a look at all the naughty innuendos writers and musicians slid by us on our favourite numbers! So, today she’s servin’ up tunes by AC/DC, The Weeknd and more.

Our segment, Between the Lines, kicked off earlier in the year. Our intent with this project has been to dive deep into some of the most iconic songs out there. We unveil the dirty secrets hidden behind all the sugar-coated lyrics. We might’ve missed some of these raunchier lines because we were either too young and naive. Or…they were just hidden that well under a string of puns and metaphors. 

Fair warning, these Between the Lines videos might just end up bursting your rosy childhood bubble. But then again, who would’ve thought that ABBA could hold some of the dirtiest lyrics out there? So, see you learn a thing or two along the way. 

Perhaps that’s what makes us appreciate these songs even more. Subtle seduction is an art of writing. It’s a lot easier to be crass and blatant. But these artists have actually put in quite a bit of effort in crafting something sensual yet beautiful. And that’s what Between the Lines brings to the table: a new perspective. 

So, hop on as Aatira Kakroo takes you on quite the wild journey.
