"Caress Me Down" is a song by Sublime from their album Sublime. It was never released as a single, but still receives substantial airplay on KROQ and other stations. The bass line of "Caress Me Down" features the famous Sleng Tengriddim from Wayne Smith's 1985 song "Under Me Sleng Teng" and lyrics and melody are primarily from the 1980s 12" single "Caress Me Down" by Clement Irie. The lyrics to the song are in Spanglish (a mixture of Spanish and English) and include a reference to porn actor Ron Jeremy, who also appears prominently in the video for Sublime's first single "Date Rape."
A demo version entitled "Caress Me Dub" can be found on the box set Everything Under The Sun and a live version which predates the version on Sublime which contains incomplete lyrics appears on Stand By Your Van.
Sublime With Rome refuses to play "Caress Me Down" because of the lyrics "Mucho gusto, me llamo Bradley." Rome Ramirez did not want to change the lyrics or sing the song out of respect for Bradley Nowell and his fans.
