Fun Facts: Robert Palmer

Most people enjoy Robert Palmer's classic rock hit, Addicted to Love. But most people don't know that the song was originally titled "Addicted to Crystal Meth". Catchy, yes... but the record label thought it was too controversial to get radio airplay. Palmer went back to the studio to revise the lyrics, but the resulting track "Addicted to Child Pornography" drew similar criticism from Island Records executives. Palmer's second rewrite of the song, "Addicted to Love (The Love of Young Boys)" was more palatable to the label, once they removed all references to man-boy love and surrounded Palmer with creepy clone chicks.

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle.

In the future, I hope to have my very own creepy clone chicks.
