Ben Taylor wants to Folk all you conventionally-beautiful women in a wicked, Wicked Way
Ben Taylor is, like Michael Franti, one of the official hippie hipster eco yoga rock stars (it doesn’t hurt that he ben-efited from some Folk Prince nepotism connections—his papa’s the wonderful James Taylor, his mama the illustrious Carly Simon).
This latest may not be his greatest—he takes 20 or so conventionally beautiful women (read: models) and sings about how he doesn’t want to talk with them or their friends or their parents, he just wants to get ’em drunk and have his wicked way with ’em.
Well I just want to take you out and get you drunk and have my wicked way with you/
I’m just being honest ’cause I know the other guys are thinking just the same way too…
Don’t you fight it…’cause I know yer gonna like it…
Points for honesty, for sure. And there’s no doubt he’s a nice guy, a good man with a great voice, from America’s First Family of Goodness. Still, date-rape talk mixed with gap-toothed, ragged-headed wholesomeness is as sour by any other name. My hunch is that if 3Oh!3 wrote a song like this, mindful bloggers everywhere would have their Wicked Way with said musical artist.
But probably I just need to chill, man. I mean, Ben isn’t 3oh!3, he’s Ben. You be the judge:

To his credit, he talks here about how it might be offensive, but is just in fun:
Some comments on youtube:
Kind of like the goofy white boy version of snoop’s bitches ain’t shit.
it’s a funny song and just goes to show that immaturity is with “men” well into their 40’s …give em time to grow up girls!
LOL…what an awesome song! And I love that Ben’s always barefoot!
Ben sounds great and I like his song writing skills! Does’nt hurt to have James Taylor for a Pa and Carly Simon for a Ma either I reckon!
He just wants to have sex with her then leave what a dick
This song is naughty and cute at the same time!

Hey Ben you can have your wicked way with me any day!

It’s not about rape. It’s wanting sex without the complications of a relationship.
he wanted a sun like black eyed peas ” i dont want to meet your mommy just want you in my caddy” type song go see him in a live show he explains all his songs, until then you guys and STFU. Not about rape.
Dude, it’s a joke!!! LOL. NO sense of humor.
he makes fwbs sound cute and cuddly!
