It started out innocently enough, with just a Facebook status update from one of our staffers asking, "What songs do you never want to hear during sex?"
Within hours, it was one of those posts with dozens of replies, charting all sorts of music that you'd want out of earshot while doing the deed. Sometimes, it's just bad music. Sometimes it's just sad or sappy music. Sometimes, it's too silly for even the most playful lovemaking. But sometimes, it's a good song that just happens to call the wrong things to mind for boot-knocking, whether it's existential angst, filial relations, renegade trucking, or just a bunch of dudes banging metal on an anvil.
