"Shut Up and Sleep With Me" as written by and Sebastian Roth....
Shut up and sleep with me
Come on, why don't you sleep with me
Shut up and sleep with me
Come on, aha and sleep with me

I love your body
Not so much I like your mind
In fact you're boring
Pretend not being of my kind
You keep on talking
Of some girl that I don't know
When will you shut up
And when will we go

You are young, you're free
Why don't you sleep with me
You are young, you're free
Why don't you sleep with me
Ah

Don't you listen
To those old conventions
No hide to surprise
Your real intentions
You're open minded
At least I want to keep on sayin'
Don't be afraid of doing
What you are best in
Shut up, shut up

You are young, you're free
Why don't you sleep with me
You are young, you're free
Why don't you sleep with me
Ah

    General CommentThis song sounds like it's about a gay guy who wants to have sex with a closet case. Look at the lyrics:

    "I love your body, not so much I like your mind
    In fact you´re boring, *pretend not being of my kind*
    You keep on talking of *some girl that I don´t know*"

    He wants to go to bed with a guy who claims he's straight and has a girlfriend.

    I have no idea where the whole idea of religion came from... :\

    General Commentyes yes ja ja it is all about a gay guy trying to sleep with a guy hes with -probably a close friend- that is afraid too come out of the closet. Pulse if you watch the music video on YouTube at

    youtube.com/…

    you will see in the first few seconds a women going shhh or should I say a very feminine looking drag queen going shhh as a funny ha ha inside reference -to all the people who get it- that she or the person the song is about is in the closet and for thoughts who know not to say anything/tell

    General CommentWell, I don't really know about gay, but my interpretation is basically what sex has become these days.

    People end up having sex for all the wrong reasons and with people they just met, or think they love but are not sure. They do it for a quick thrill. People try to pressure each other into having sex, just so they won't be a virgin anymore.

    Shut up and Sleep with Me implies the "LETS JUST DO IT" attitude without thinking about consequences or if you really love the person.

    General CommentThe hell? This is song is so straight-forward (well straight isn't the right word) you're basically being slapped in the face with it. It's not religion, and it's not sleeping with a girl. Like f-fashion says, it's a gay guy. I'm just going to quote without explaining them because it'd be redundant.

    "pretend not being of my kind
    You keep on talking of some girl that I don´t know
    When will you shut up, and when will we go?"

    "Don´t you listen to those old conventions
    Nor hide or suppress your real intentions
    You´re open minded, at least that´s what you keep on saying"

    General CommentI love this horrible song. For some reason whenever I'm sad, I listen to it and it makes me feel better.

    But it's a bad song.

    General CommentThis song is awful. But I always associate it with L from Death Note thanks to a fan video I once watched... Damn you YouTube!

    General CommentSo I just found out that this song is actually about a gay guy. No wonder people like to play it on yaoi videos...

    General CommentThe video clip for this is just.. bizarre.
    And it's a bad song.

    But as to the meaning, I think it's fairly obvious.
    Duh, of course it's a reflection on religion, and not following "those old conventions". "Shut up, and sleep with me" is a metaphor for changing to a better religion and not preaching about your current one. Obviously the person the song is about claims to be open-minded, but isn't, really, because their religion conflicts.
    Well, that's my two cents. ;)
