A Post-Freudian Subtextual Analysis of "Afternoon Delight"

Once again, the rigorous academic jargon presented in the post title above is being used to demonstrate to college professors the utility of this blog in promoting shared higher educational goals. This is designed to assist overworked instructors in dealing with some of the vexing cultural questions that come up every day in the classroom such as, for example, "What is the true meaning of the lyrics 'Skyrockets in flight / Afternoon delight?'" Such thorny interpretive problems are best approached with the scrupulous use of an academic lexicon, allowing for a nuanced, scholarly explication of even the most obtuse and difficult song lyrics to emerge from an increasingly complex cultural landscape.
