Playing With: Stuffy Old Songs About the Buttocks
Basic Trope: A song that praises a love interest's... Assets.
  • Straight: Bob writes a whole song about women's glorious butts.
  • Exaggerated: Every song Bob writes is about the female posterior.
  • Downplayed: Bob mentions Alice's curves, but it isn't clear whether he's talking about her butt, her boobs, her figure in general, or even a "curve" that's more of a "roll."
  • Justified: Bob is an ass-man; that is, beautiful buttocks are Fetish Fuel for him.
  • Inverted:
    • Bob writes a song about how ugly women's butts are.
    • Bob sings the praises of Alice's boobs.
  • Gender Inverted: Alice writes a song in praise of to sculpted male booties.
  • Subverted:
    • The song appears to be about someone's ass, but the ass the singer is talking about is a donkey.
    • The song praises all aspects of Alice's beauty.
  • Double Subverted:
    • But in a display of Getting Crap Past the Radar, it's all about them, just in cryptic or poetic language.
    • But spends a long time waxing poetic about her hiney.
  • Parodied: The song consists of the words, "Butt, butt, butt" and nothing else.
  • Zig Zagged: The song is called Booty, but it's about pirates. Except it also contains lyrics that sound like they're about buttocks. But Bob didn't mean them, it was an accidental innuendo. Then Bob sings another song that really is about butts.
  • Averted:
    • Bob doesn't write songs about buttocks.
    • Bob composes only instrumentals.
  • Enforced: Sex Sells.
  • Lampshaded: "Another song in praise of gorgeous ass in hopes of getting some ass."
  • Invoked: Bob is thinking of songs, and his mind wanders to Alice's assets.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Bob thinks that's tacky and Cliché, and decides to write a song about something else.
  • Discussed: "Ah man, I gotta write a club song but can't think of any lyrics" "Just write a song about booty."
  • Conversed: "Butt songs; It's Been Done!"
  • Deconstructed: The song may come across as a Misogyny Song, or just too shallow.
  • Played For Drama: Bob earns the wrath of feminist groups, Moral Guardians, and Media Watchdogs everywhere.
