Afternoon Delight
The Starland Vocal Band

    This song is about a man finding his woman so irresistible that he could not wait to "do" her until the night time so he did it at merely 12:01 in the afternoon. Hence, "Afternoon Delight". The artist also makes a good point by saying that everything is clearer in the light of day, meaning that you can see everything about your partner (genitals). In the movie Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Ron explains what "love" feels like by singing this song to his friends/co-workers. The lyrics "sky rockets in flight" means that the man has a massive erection.

    It was written by Bill Danoff, one of the members of the band. Danoff's fellow bandmember and then-wife Kathy "Taffy" Nivert told at least one audience that the title came from a spicy menu item of the same name at Clyde's restaurant in Georgetown. Danoff enjoyed writing the song and downplayed the somewhat controversial lyrics, saying, "I didn't want to write an all-out sex song ... I just wanted to write something that was fun and hinted at sex."
