Almost all pop songs are about, ahem, "reproduction"

Literally 92% of Billboard top ten songs have a "reproductive message", according to a recent study.

A fascinating study picked up on by the Atlantic proved conclusively that all pop songs are about having sex. Or, as the SUNY Albany psychology professor Dawn R. Hobbs charmingly euphemised in Evolutionary Psychology, “reproductive messages.” Of 174 top ten songs, 92% had a sexy theme, with sex mention on average 10.49 times per song. An even more funny break-down of themes crossed by genre is linked below.
