The Most Horrifying Song You Will Hear All Day: It’s Like “Butterfly Kisses” Meets The Birds And The Bees

I am not a parent, so I have no idea what it’s like to have The Talk with your kids–or, at least, The Explanation Of Why Mom And Dad’s Room Has Noise Coming Out Of It On Some Nights. But I’m pretty sure that “Making Love,” a song that made its way to the people behind Mind-Melting Demo Disasters, is not it. A delicately plucked folk song that’s sung to a not-yet-walking child by “Daddy,” with “Mommy” chiming in to harmonize every so often, its particular brand of squickiness is probably best epitomized by the various sexual metaphors it ticks off during one of the verses: – “a roll in the hay” – “a cat in the hat” – “come out and play” – “banging the door” – “turning the screw” – “four on the floor” – “taming the shrew” What a nice way to refer to “Mommy”! And I haven’t even gotten to the part where they try to explain away the sounds of “Mommy”‘s vibrator yet. (It rhymes “faze her” with “my electric razor.”) I apologize in advance for you not being able to unhear this, but, well, at least I feel a little better about my potential parenting skills now.This song is called “Making Love” [Mind-Melting Demo Disasters]
