A Selection of the Flat-Out Dirtiest Songs in the History of Music

Ginuwine — “Pony”

There’s nothing even remotely subtle about “Pony” and its central metaphor: “If you’re horny/ Let’s do it/ Ride it/ My pony,” sings Ginuwine in the sort of voice that set the hearts of ladies (and suitably inclined gents) a-racing. But for all that the lyrics are pleasingly lewd, again, it’s the music that really kicks this into the realm of unconstrained filth — specifically, that three-note bass riff, which is one of the best grinding basslines ever and also liberated the talk box from the clutches of Richie Sambora.
