Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Blood of Eden"
The Dirty Lyrics:
At my request, you take me in
In that tenderness, I am floating away
No certainty, nothing to rely on
Holding still for a moment
What a moment this is
Oh for a moment of forgetting, a moment of bliss
Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls
Watch each one reach for creature comfort
For the filling of their holes
Why They're Dirty:
Well, is it or is it not? It could mean anything, but it also pretty much could mean ... you know what ;o)
Submitted by: Claus
"Sledgehammer"
The Dirty Lyrics:
1.)You could have a steam train,
if you just laid down your tracks
2.) Open up your fruit cage,
cause I will be your honey bee,
open up your fruit cage,
where the fruit there is as sweet as can be
Why They're Dirty:
Not until about 2 years after initially hearing it. The first lyric is a long list of different types of lovers the woman can have. The second lyric is an obvious plee for him to perform oral sex.
Submitted by: Ed

Why:
When I was a teenager I was listening one night to a rock radio station and the lady DJ played this song. She said that us listeners were not halluncinating, that a German friend of hers had sent her a German language copy of Peter Gabriel's hit "Shock the Monkey". It was absolutely amazing. It stoked some conversations around the locker door halls in school the next day.

"Deusches Album"
In 1982 Peter Gabriel released his 4th solo album. It was untitled just like the previous three but in the US it was titled "Security". Early in 1983 a German language of this album was released under the title "Deusches Album". Some of the tracks were played on US radio. All of Peter's subsequent albums have titles.
