Found this interesting website in my notes! How times have changed -- what people found sensitive would now be common conversation. I wonder if they bother to ban any songs in this day and age, but I'm sure they think about it!!
Some interesting examples:
- Lou Reed's 'Walk on the Wild Side' was banned because of "giving head"
- The Smoke's 'My Friend Jack' for "eats sugar lumps".
- Billie Holiday's song 'Gloomy Sunday' was about suicide, so it was banned in 1941
- The Sex Pistol's 'God Save the Queen' in 1977, because BBC has to be patriotic!
- John Lennon's 'Imagine' was banned during the Gulf War
Just an interesting selection!! :) Even songs about banning songs like the Beverly Sisters 'We Have to Be so Careful' of the 1950s and Norman Long's 'We Can't Let You Broadcast That' in 1932.
