Artists like Lady Gaga, Madonna and Robin Thicke gave us melodic wordplay through their songs that you need to check RN!
A beautiful quote that I read the other day made more sense in many ways than I could ever fathom. "How many times have people used a pen or paintbrush because they couldn't pull the trigger?" We often underestimate the power that a pen holds. It can destroy things and at the same time, it can heal you. Artists over the years have mastered the art of storytelling through their art. Be it paintings, digital art, or even songwriting, art has the power to change one's perception without them even realizing it. Songs for one, have changed people's lives in many ways. Going through a heartbreak? You can either listen to a sad song to live in that agony or listen to an upbeat song to channel the bad bitch energy. But what if I tell you there's a way you can feel both emotions together? Double entendre lyrics in songs have been going around for many years but hardly anyone ever notices.
Sadly there are very few songs that talk about real issues through their lyrics and the rest are mostly about sexual desires. Like a Virgin, Wannabe and I Want to Hold Your Hands by one the biggest artists in pop culture have used such lyrics throughout for their careers and created a fan base around it. So here's why we jotted down ten of such songs that are up for the post of CEO of cleverly using double entendre lyrics.
Here are songs by artists who penned two things at once
Like a Virgin by Madonna
This iconic pop song uses the concept of virginity as a metaphor for the excitement of a new romantic relationship.
I Want to Hold Your Hand by The Beatles
