"Baby It's Cold Outside" pulled from radio

Recommended Posts

I think I'm dreaming of a white Christmas is offensive. What if kids misinterpret it for a white Christmas like the type Trump wants? What if they don't get that it's about snow? What if they think it's about snow but where snow is code for cocaine? PULL IT NOW

Have they altered Dire Straits money for nothing for radio yet?

Actually heard this yesterday and was thinking the same thing, thankfully it wasn't altered.  And though not as controversial(yet lol:o) the song after was Robert Palmer's addicted to love "You're mine, and not your own."

I'm not sure how old Greg was when he wrote this song, but he looks like he was around 16......

I actually play this song in my band and you're correct. That being said, I've always wondered how one's "heart sweats"....:unsure:

A long time ago The trio called "Peter, Paul and Mary had a huge kids song become a hit " Puff The Magic Dragon".

Some folk thought it was a song full of drug references, the band thought it was funny at first but this rumour got so large they had to fight back.

So they pointed out the drug references in this song as an example of you can find offense anywhere.

Song is called "The Star Spangled Banner"

Very cute song.  I remember it well.

What about the hullabaloo over Elton John's lyrics, "Lucy in the sky with diamonds"  equaling LSD?

So many songs can be misconstrued.

Firstly, that wasn't Elton's tune, it was the Beatles.

 

John Lennon wrote it after one of his kids (Julian, or Sean. Can't remember which) came home from school with a drawing of his friend Lucy flying and surrounded by stars. The picture was titled Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds. Lennon thought it made a good title. The rest of the lyrics come from Alice in Wonderland.

 

If you're looking for a song with drug references, Purple Haze, or White Rabbit are two good examples.

Both are bipeds

Both are wearing glasses

Both are singers

Both have masturbated in front of other men.

 

Lots in common.

I was referencing a song that people (at the time) believed had drug connotation, but that really didn't.  Mixed up the singers though.  :picard:

You beat me to the Lucy in the Sky story. 

 

There were other, more blatant drug songs in the 60's:

 

One toke over the line, Sweet Jesus, One toke over the line,

Sittin downtown in a railway station, One toke over the line.

 

and

 

There ain't nothing' it can't fix,

Old dogs can learn new tricks,

when the streets are lined with bricks

of Acapulco Gold.

 

and

 

Rooooooooolllllllllllllll another one,

just like the other one

You've been hangin' on to it,

And I sure would like a hit.

Don't Bogart that joint my friend,

Pass it over to me

Don't Bogart that joint my friend,

Pass it over to me

 

and,

 

Panama Red (New Riders of the Purple Sage)

Thanks for these, aGENT. Both speakers offer excellent insight into what I feel is a major issue and one that is causing far more harm than good.
