What Your Children Listen to: "Glad You Came"

Welcome back to another edition of What Your Children Listen to. This time around, we take a look at the British/Irish boy band known as The Wanted.  Their hit song Glad You Came is currently number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the singles chart in the UK for two weeks. The music video currently has 29 million views, depicting a party in a tropical location.

The boy band's demographic consists of younger girls, but are The Wanted's lyrics suitable for them? Glad You Came discusses the consumption of alcoholic beverages and has potentially sexually suggestive lyrics, but the analysis is up to you. As always, we'll highlight specific excerpts of the song.

So let's go somewhere no one else can see, you and me.

Turn the lights out now, now I'll take you by the hand,

Hand you another drink, drink it if you can,

Can you spend a little time, time is slipping away,

Away from us so stay, stay with me, I can make,

Make you glad you came.

The sun goes down, the stars come out,

And all that counts is here and now,

My universe will never be the same,

I'm glad you came, I'm glad you came.

You cast a spell on me, spell on me

You hit me like the sky fell on me, fell on me

And I decided you look well on me, well on me

--

The sun goes down, the stars come out,

And all that counts is here and now,

My universe will never be the same

I'm glad you came, I'm glad you came.

I'm glad you came

So glad you came

I'm glad you came

I'm glad you came
