WHAT DOES AFTERNOON DELIGHT MEAN?

Afternoon Delight is the name of a 1976 song by the Starland Vocal Band. The song, which contains innuendo about casual daytime sex (or an afternoon delight) was a hit. Because of the song’s popularity, afternoon delight has become well-recognized as a term for a midday sexual encounter, often between or instead of scheduled events.

(You’re) Having My Baby

Despite its commercial success, the song has been criticized for its maudlin sentimentality and perceived sexist undertones, and has appeared in many “worst songs” lists. It was voted the #1 “Worst Song of All Time” in a poll conducted by CNN.com in 2006.

The National Organization for Women gave Anka the “Keep Her in Her Place” award during “its annual putdown of male chauvinism” in the media on Women’s Equality Day. Ms. magazine “awarded” Anka their “Male Chauvinistic Pig of the Year” award.
