Default Which had a greater effect on music?

I was pondering the other day about how much music was influenced by sex or by drugs. I also wonder if people just over-interperet songs and assume that they are about such things.

Sex, easily. Before there was money, before drugs were easy to come by, sex was there inspiring musicians to write music to get people's blood flowing.

I'll say sex. There are a ridiculous amount of "love" songs out there, a lot of people I've known have picked up musical instruments to woo or impress the desired gender, etc.

I see it this way: There are musicians who don't do / approve of drugs. There are musicians who don't give a **** about politics. There are musicians who aren't doing it for the money. You'll be hard-pressed to find a musician with no interest in love or sex at all. I'm sure they exist, but there have to be far less of those than the others.

I know love and sex kind of go hand in hand, but I'd say that sex is just about that. In this instance, the actual physical act of sex is key. Rather than the emotional attachments that's embodied in it. So for that reason, I voted drugs.
