The Weirdest Pedophile Songs Of All Time
Way back in the '60s, there emerged a bizarre musical genre -- guys singing about their attraction to underage girls and how wrong it was!
In 1967, Neil Diamond belted the suggestive "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon." ("Please come take my hand / Girl, you'll be a woman soon / Soon, you'll need a man.")
You can feel Neil's swelling hormones as he urges himself to just wait a few seconds till their lovin' will be right under the law.
A year later, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap came out with the way more decisive male-fantasy-wrapped-in-a-cautionary-tale "Young Girl," which went like so:
"Beneath your perfume and your makeup / You're just a baby in disguise
"And though you know that it is wrong to be alone with me / That come-on look is in your eyes."
But Puckett wasn't having it.
The song's highly ethical conclusion: "You'd better run, girl! You're much too young, girl!"
And "Go Away, Little Girl" -- which was released in 1962 and reached a peak with the 1971 Donny Osmond cover -- always gave me the creeps every time the phrase "little girl" came up.
But one song had the balls to actually embrace generation-mixing without shame or pretense.
1960 is when the world first heard "You come on like a dream, peaches and cream, lips like strawberry wine / You're 16, you're beautiful, and you're mine."
In 1974, Ringo Starr went to number one with his cover version of that sick mess -- and, by the way, the song was written by the Sherman Brothers of Mary Poppins fame!
They certainly knew about young, impressionable minds.
