Portrayal does not mean promotion.

I agree. That being said, this wasn't exactly "Springtime for Hitler". Like, clearly there was some fantasizing going on. Now, is it any worse than some other historical setting sexual exploitation fantasy revolving some dodgy ruler/social system? I don't know. I mean, if they made a song about some English Lord "claiming his rights" to a bunch of Irish/Scottish newlyweds, I think that would certainly raise the eyebrows of some, but also a lot would shrug if the beat was alright and they ended up getting laid to the song.

I dunno, it's a really fine line they're treading. Like I said, I think the kink angle is the more honest answer than "This song was about the horrors of slavery." Sorry but "Follow the Drinking Gourd" was a song about the horrors of slavery. "John Brown's Body" is a song about the horrors of slavery. "Southern Man" is a song about the horrors of slavery.

Brown Sugar is a song about having sex with a black girl, enjoying it and linking it to interracial sex of the past. "A Modest Proposal" in song form, this was not.

Now that's okay. You can skirt the edge and if any band should be skirting the edge, it's the Rolling Stones, but lets just be real about it.

Just 3?  I couldn't possibly.  It'd be easier to list my three least favorites.
I understand it's a difficult choice and I'm not as huge a fan as some but for some personal reasons, as well as being one who  appreciates a solid riff, this would be first without going into a second or third.

Not listening to right now, but just a heads up for Lou Reed/Velvet Underground fans. There's a new documentary out called 'The Velvet Underground'.
