The song is called “Gold Trans Am” and it’s going to be her newest single (obviously). Ke$ha told Q Magazine that, “It began as a song about my car, which is a gold Trans Am and it works about 40 percent of the time. I don’t have another car because I love that one so much. But then like all great pop, it became a metaphor for something else – my p—y. My vagina is in tip-top working order. Valeted and souped-up and working 100 percent of the time.”
Okay, that was a lot more than I ever needed to know about Ke$ha, but cool, I guess? While the idea of a song about someone’s vagina might make you be like “OMG what a REBEL!” at first, I get it. But honestly guys, there are lots of songs about vaginas. So many songs that we made a list of the best! Get ready for your new favorite playlist ever – vagina songs.

This might be about Courtney Love’s vagina. Just warning ‘ya. Notable lyrics: Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet/Cut myself on angel hair and baby’s breath/Broken hymen of ‘Your Highness’, I’m left black/Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back.
“Christmas Tree” by Lady Gaga
Are you honestly surprised that Lady Gaga wrote a song about her lady parts? Notable lyrics (or basically the only lyrics): Light me up put me on top, let’s/Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la, la, la/Light me up put me on top, let’s/Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la, la, la/My Christmas tree’s delicious.
“Custard Pie” by Led Zeppelin
Just Led Zeppelin appreciating vaginas… or something. Notable lyrics: Your custard pie, yeah, sweet and nice/When you cut it, mama, save me a slice/Your custard pie, I declare, it’s sweet and nice/I Like your custard pie/When you cut it, mama… mama, please save me a slice.
“Work It” by Missy Elliot
This song… I mean, you know you’ve danced to it at least once. Notable lyrics: Your girl actin’ stank then call me over/Not on the bed, lay me on your sofa/Phone before you come, I need to shave my chocha/You do or you don’t or you will or won’t ya/Go downtown and eat it like a vulture.
“Pink” by Aerosmith
Guys, this song is VERY catchy. You may not have even known it was about vagina. I didn’t for a very long time, because I was very naive. Notable lyrics: Pink, it’s my new obsession, yeah /Pink, it’s not even a question /Pink, on the lips of your lover /’Cause pink is the love you discover/Pink, as the bing on your cherry/Pink, ’cause you are so very/Pink, it’s the color of passion.
“Soft As Snow” by My Bloody Valentine
This is a very sweet song about our lady parts. Seriously, the lyrics are kind of pretty. Notable lyrics: Touch your head, then your hair/Softer, softer everywhere/Fingertips are burning/Can I touch you there/Soft as velvet eyes can see/Bring me close to ecstacy.
“Cola” by Lana Del Rey
Bear with me here. I can’t find a clean version of Lana Del Rey singing this, so we’ll go with a cover. Notable lyrics: My p—y tastes like Pepsi Cola/My eyes are wide like cherry pies/I gots a taste for men who’re older/It’s always been so it’s no surprise.
“Birthday Cake” by Rihanna ft. Chris Brown
Ugh, this song totally announced that this too got back together – obvs in the most classy way. Notable lyrics: Love the way you do when you do it like that/Show up with the stats, bring the racks on my racks/Wrap it up, wrap it up boy/While I take this bow off/Talk That Talk, yeah I know I’m such a show off/Daddy make a wish/Put this cake in your face/And it’s not even my birthday.
