No Leonard songs in the Guardian's Sex List!

Unbelievable...nothing by Leonard whatsoever here, even though the list includes songs such as "I Touch Myself", "Wet Dream" "Pictures of Lily", and "Tent" (by the Bonzo Dog Band)! Somehow John Sebastian's "Darlin' Be Home Soon" makes it into the list too (a lovely song, but not exactly what you'd expect in a list of "sex" songs). Anyway, here's the list:

This list is ridiculous... Whoever put those songs together is definitely not having the best "THIS MESSAGE IS SPAM AND WILL BE DELETED AS SOON AS THE MODERATOR WAKES UP" life. :lol:

It's forbidden to write sex?

No problem with the "s" word ...most people here seem to be fairly liberal (except efc and mdidier!). Anyway, I'm happy for this thread to be deleted, as the Guardian lists are absurd. They also managed to create a list of 100 Protest songs without including "A Hard Rain's a Gonna Fall", "The Universal Soldier" or "Let's Impeach the President".

I just copied the line about the deletion, because I'm always using the Preview-button and suddenly there was this message instead of the word "sex". Somehow I find it pretty amusing, though. Other boards replace forbidden words with an "x" and here you're even getting a special message ;-)

....surprising that the experts didn't include Muscrat Love and Afternoon Delight in such a stellar list....

This is a perfect example of why I loathe "lists". Unless the "list" is crafted and debated by SEVERAL people, they usually turn out to be utter nonsense.
