Teenage pregnancy is an incredibly emotional time in a teenager’s life. Many songs are written about the experiences of teen pregnancy and the difficulties a pregnant teen may face. Songs like “Papa Don’t Preach” and “You’re Gonna Be” by Helen King and Reba McEntire are great examples of these. Other popular songs about pregnancy include George Strait’s “I Saw God Today” and Chris Young’s “My Little Girl.”
Helen King’s song “Papa Don’t Preach”
“Papa Don’t Preach” is a song about teenage pregnancy by Helen King. It is one of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, according to Rolling Stone. It describes a man who drives around with his pregnant girlfriend in the trunk of his car. This man becomes increasingly obsessed with the rapper, and eventually gets angry when the man doesn’t reciprocate his interest in him.
The song’s controversial lyrics drew a lot of criticism. While some feminists argued that it promoted teenage pregnancy, other feminists saw it as an anti-abortion message. Madonna performed the song five times on her concert tours, including her Who’s That Girl World Tour in 1987. The song also caused Madonna to run into trouble with the Vatican. She later dedicated the song to Pope John Paul II.
It is important to note that the music industry has commercialised music to the point that it has become less art than it once was. For instance, music industry stars and fans are increasingly sexualised, and songs like “I’m Not Sorry” are byproducts of this process. This is a pity, since “I’m Not Sorry” is not a feminist song.
Chris Young’s “You’re Gonna Be”
If you’re looking for a great song to listen to on repeat, “You’re Gonna Be” by Chris Young might be it. This country singer has one of the best voices in the business. His songs are always fun and easy to play. He has even won the Nashville Star competition.
The song’s title has a great ring to it and reminds me of the old country music era. The song is about burning in love and a lover who can’t seem to put it out. Young’s rumbling baritone is a classic, but the production has a modern feel. The song features massive drums and pinging guitars.
Young’s fans have been anticipating the release of his new album for so long. It’s his first studio album in four years. The deluxe edition of the album will be released on June 3, two days before his birthday. This edition will have six bonus songs, including acoustic versions of previous hits.
The song’s title is a reference to the lovelorn eyes of a woman. The lyrics are upbeat and a great way to get a girl’s attention. The lyrics are witty and a great example of Young’s country roots. It also earned Young his fifth Grammy nomination.
The song was written and recorded in Nashville a few months before Young’s big break in Los Angeles. The lyrics are very relatable. It’s also about a long distance relationship and leaving a significant other. This is a song that every woman will be able to relate to.
