* [[Music/TheBlackCrowes The Black Crowes]] recorded an unreleased album they titled "Tall." A pretty innocuous name, all things considered. Sure, it happens to be old {{jazz}} slang for getting high, but that's probably a coincidence, right? What's that? The Black Crowes were on the cover of High Times Magazine?

* Mike Mareen's "Don't Talk to the Snake". You probably [[FreudWasRight know what "snake" means]], and the lyrics may be interpreted as a warning against AIDS. This was in 1988, when the epidemic started to go public.

** Using its own title in a similar fashion is Korn's "Beat It Upright" (''"I'm gonna beat it upright!"'', essentially giving oneself an erection manually). However, this being Korn, the rest of the lyrics make no effort to veil the subject matter even slightly.

* BillyJoel's song "Christie Lee" is about a saxophone player who meets a woman at his gig, who is impressed by his skill and comes home with him so he can "perform" for her. In case it wasn't clear, we get this lyric: "He couldn't see that Christie Lee was a woman/who didn't need another lover; all she wanted was the [[IncrediblyLamepun sax]]!" However the lyrics make it perfectly clear that Christie Lee isn't sexually attracted to him.

* The Philippines had so many examples of this in the early 2000s that double-entendre novelty music could have been called a genre of its own. While in the '90s, rapper Andrew E's sexually-charged lyrics left little to the imagination, writers of these songs (mostly troubadour of the masses Lito Camo) would hide sexual references or references to the male or female sexual organs in clever (or not-so-clever) puns. Acts known for these songs (who were mostly female) included Sexbomb, Mae Rivera, Selina Sevilla, Aleck Bovick, and the Viva Hot Babes.
