Music Monday: Inappropriateness

I'm guessing that the lyrics to this song are inappropriate. In reading about this band, Nikita, I found several articles that referenced "fierce sexuality" as a theme of their music. And indeed, if you watch the music video for this song the two of them wear nothing but censor bars for the entirety of the video. That being said, it's a pretty solid song. And while I feel a bit bad getting songs like Call Me Maybe stuck in my head because they're so meaningless, I don't have to feel bad about that with these foreign songs. Because I can pretend that they're singing about the dangers of totalitarianism or the poetry of the spheres. But they're almost certainly not.
