    In the early 60's it was still very difficult to get radio airplay with a "sexual-innuendo" song.
    Usually, only the "Blues" or "R & B" (i.e. Black) singers could get away with it.
    But the Beatles did so in 1963 with this, their first hit. (Shown here is the 1964 U.S. release.)

    Controversial maybe, but not political......


    Speaking for myself, I've always done just fine with no drugs of any kind. Never touched them, or needed to, or wanted to.

    But, musically, everyone admired this. In 1967, it was far ahead of its time and pioneered the "New Wave."

    The Velvet Underground (with Lou Reed): "Heroin"

    Also controversial


    In the 60's (at least in the United States) it was still usually taboo to sing a song about "sick" people (i.e. mentally sick). It might be done in a very lighthearted and humorous way, but not anything serious or unpleasant -- and, especially, not any sexual kind of sickness.

    By 1969, when uptight America was a little more ready to accept such things, The Who had a success with their concept album, "Tommy."

    But back in 1966 they had made a tentative stab in that direction with this song, which was suppressed in the U.S. so that hardly anyone there heard it at the time.
