Playlist Thursday: Is That Your Innuendo?

Playlist Thursday: Is That Your Innuendo?

Need some songs for your running playlist? Want a little entertainment or something to think about while you are running? Here are some songs that are heavy in the “innuendo” category.

in•nu•en•do: noun, an indirect intimation about a person or thing,especially of a disparaging or a derogatory nature. (Source)

The rules:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Something Old

Artist: Def Leppard
Title: Pour Some Sugar On Me
Side Note: You know you remember it. No, they were not the Ramones and the comparisons were not fair. Either way, this song still rocks on my playlist.
Quotable: “Listen! red light, yellow light, green-a-light go!”

Something Current

Artist: Alicia Keys feat. Nicki Minaj
Title: Girl On Fire
Side Note: I absolutely LOVE running to Alicia Keys. There are three versions of this song. A Bluelight version (acoustic?), the “regular” version, and this, the Inferno version (which features NM). All three are available on iTunes. — Nicki also gives a shout out to Gabby and her Olympic glory.
Quotable: “Oh, she got both feet on the ground. And she’s burning it down”

Something to Consider

Artist: AC/DC
Title: You Shook Me All Night Long
Side Note: Yep, shook. You shook me all night long. I think this may have appeared on a Playlist Thursday before… oh well, deserves another nod.
Quotable: “The walls start shaking, earth was quaking.”


There you have it… three songs that are most likely about something other than the literal translation… but I could be completely wrong.

In case you missed my last post, I took some photos over labor Day weekend as a salute to the end of summer. Top 10 Photos.

What did you think of the songs this week?

Care to suggest what these songs are really about?




  1. Surely there not about anything other than the straight lyrics. Surely not….keep my innocent mind clean, will ya?! :)

  2. I had to stop by and check this out. I had a couple of good ones for old but nothing for the new category and I’ve been SO busy I haven’t had time to think so no playlist for me today. :( Love AC/DC! And I really like that Alicia Keys song, never heard it before.

  3. Good choices, but you forgot The Joker by Steve Miller Band – “really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree…” Another great oldie to consider, even with its mellow beat. :)

  4. LOVE THIS! Purely by accicent today I did an innuendo song about my Marathon Training. I am the queen of the innuendo song though. I make believe every song is in some way about running or genetics…they are probably more like about love or something boring though! ha!

  5. Whoa, AC/DC and Def Leppard bring me back to every single party I went to/had in college. Haha. And they ALWAYS appear on my playlist. <3 Try "Slang" by Def Leppard. ;)

  6. I LOVE this week’s! But then again, I love every week’s!

  7. Adding that ALicia Keys track to my playlist!

  8. Def Leppard, AC/DC then ALICIA KEYS. hahaha that makes me laugh.

  9. That is quite the eclectic list, lol.

  10. I concur with Charlotte, that’s quite a mix! LOVE ME some Def Leppard,

  11. I’m loving Girl On Fire! That is going on my gym playlist, thanks!!

  12. Am I supposed to be thinking right now?! ;)
