Simple Minds', "Don't You Forget About Me"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Rain keeps fallin',
rain keeps fallin' down
Why They're Inappropriate:
And what, pray tell, does this have to do with the rest of the song?
Submitted by: Gus
The Drifters', "Under the Boardwalk"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
We'll be makin' love under the boardwalk,
Why They're Inappropriate:
Romanticizing public indecency... how is nobody seeing anything wrong with that?
Submitted by: Amanda
Diana Ross', "Upside Down"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Respectfully I say to thee
I'm aware that you're cheatin
Why They're Inappropriate:
The now mostly archaic English pronoun 'thee' was used to address persons with whom one was on a different level of intimacy than those addressed as 'you'. So addressing the same person as both 'thee' and 'you' in a single sentence (hence with no chance that the relationship changed over time in between the uses of the two pronouns) was never proper.

Talking Heads', "Stay Up Late"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I know you want to leave me.
Why They're Inappropriate:
This line is taken from "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" by the Temptations; why David Byrne would include it here I do not know.
Submitted by: Mickey D.
U2's, "Pride in the Name of Love"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Early morning, April four,
shot rings out in the Memphis sky.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Technically, it occurred in the evening, during the 6 p.m. hour, local time. Therefore it would be more appropriate to say "Early evening." However, according to Wikopedia, Bono has acknowledged the mistake, and when he performs the song live, he often uses "evening" instead of "morning" (but not always!).

Foo Fighters', "Big Me"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
When I talk about it,
Aries or, treasons all renew
Why They're Inappropriate:
What, praytell, does Aries (a sign of the zodiac) have to do with the subject matter of the song?
Submitted by: Quyjibo
Jim Lowe's, "The Green Door"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Knocked once, tried to tell them I'd been there;
Door slammed, hospitality's thin there.
Wonder just what's going on in there.
Saw an eyeball peeping
Through a smoky cloud behind the green door;
When I said "Joe sent me"
Someone laughed out loud behind the green door.
All I want to do
Is join the happy crowd behind the green door.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Why is the singer attracted to such snobs?
Submitted by: Bob
Snap!'s, "Rhythm Is A Dancer"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I'm as serious as cancer when I say
rhythm is a dancer.
Why They're Inappropriate:
I'm not sure how such a grave disease can have to do with the subject matter of the song.
Submitted by: Quyjibo
Aaliyah's, "Are You That Somebody?"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Sometimes I'm Goody Goody
Right now I'm naughty naughty
Why They're Inappropriate:
I'm not sure what to make of this.
Submitted by: Quyjibo
R.E.M.'s, "The One I Love"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Why They're Inappropriate:
I don't see what this has to do with the rest of the song; neither the title nor the rest of the lyrics have anything whatsoever to do with being on a battleground or anything of the like. Yet Michael Stipe belts it out at the end of each short verse.
