* {{Ian Dury| And The Blockheads}}'s "I Want To Be Straight", although it's deliberate. It even uses "bent" to mean "addicted to drugs". Ian was bisexual, thus he deliberately phrased this song in such a way that could be about either homosexuality or drug use.

** "It's a Big, Wide, Wonderful World" is a lovely old song that's never heard nowadays, possibly due to its opening lines comparing being in love to being "a gay Santa Claus."

** Similarly, Creedence Clearwater Revival used to call themselves the Golliwogs before they became famous, they just thought it sounded British without knowing it was an offensive term for black people.

to:

* ''Music/SimonAndGarfunkel'' use the term "one-night stand" to mean "a one-off performance by a touring act" rather than "a sexual encounter with no expectation of further interaction" in the lyrics for "Homeward Bound". Both terms would have been used at the time, and might still be understood, but now the sexual meaning has completely taken over.
