Warrant – “Cherry Pie” – (1990)

This oh-so-subtle glam rock song about… erm… dessert, is, perhaps, Warrant’s best-known song. It was a top ten hit in the U.S. The video is fairly memorable for the band in a big white room and an attractive woman dancing around while being sprayed by a hose and eating cherries. Oh yeah, subtle. Apparently, according to Jani Lane (Warrant front-man) he wrote this song in 15 minutes, which isn’t too terribly hard to believe once you’ve listened to it. It’s fairly basic and high-schoolers everywhere loved the dirty, innuendo-laced lyrics (although some were more blunt than others). Sounds just like every 80s hair band.
