I have just heard a report on
German radio about certain songs
and music which have been quietly
censored because of the upcoming
war recently and after the 9/11
In most cases they are songs promoting
peace in the world.
The most prominent song being
John Lenon's Imagine.
Amongst others, "A Little Peace"
and "99 Red Balloons" by German singers
Nicole and Nena respectively.
Ever tried to request your local FM station
airplay of these songs and others promoting
peace at this time??
Any other songs that you know, wouldn't
have airplay at this time in the US??

Actually there were around 150 songs banned right away. REM's It's the end of the world as we know it and Frank Sinatra's New York, New York come to mind. Censorship is ridiculous, and that's why I haven't listened to commercial radio since late 1997.

In the first Gulf War, the BBC circulated a list of songs that were deemed inappropriate and therefore banned. It was so oversensitive, it was hilarious. The obvious ones were Merry Xmas (War Is Over) by John Lennon, but also stuff like I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight (Cutting Crew) and my favourite, I'm On Fire (B Springsteen).

Does anybody remember this song by Sugarcult "...today I changed, too late 'cause everyone feels the same...everybody's talkin' about blowin up the neighborhood..." in my area, it was played a lot before 9/11 and then afterwards it took a vacation.
Bush(the band) had a song called "Speed kills" released shortly before 9/11 but then changed it to "The people that we love". In all fairness, I can't say it was because of 9/11 because the line "The things we do to the people that we love" is repeated often in the song.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

Did any of the egg heads who came up with this theory watch the Grammys last Night, how many Anti-War speeches were there. Too many IMO but it's their right to speak what they believe , even on National tv.
