bostonscoots said:The Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar" - a trigger warning gone top ten if there ever was one. Some songs are about sex...or drugs...or slavery...or masochism...but "Brown Sugar" is about ALL of them. Most of today's snowflakes would have banned the song even before hearing the second chorus:
Gold Coast slave ship bound for cotton fields
Sold in the market down in New Orleans
Scarred old slaver knows he's doin' all right
Hear him whip the women just around midnight
Brown Sugar, how come you taste so good
Brown Sugar, just like a young girl should
vinylontubes said:There is a dichotomy in lyrics today. For some reason you still get away with a lot of stuff in Hip-Hop that you can't get away with in other musical genres.
bob_32_116 said:There are some real double standards at play in the public broadcasting arena today. People get worked up about that word in Money For nothing, yet at the same time rap and hip hop seems to get a free pass to throw in as many swear words and be as sexist, misogynistic or homophobic as it wishes - and same applies to some modern Jamaican reggae and dancehall. Check out the lyrics to songs by such acts as Beany Man, Elephant Man, and T.O.K..
MikeM said:I'm not gonna re-litigate "Run for Your Life" again — been there and done that — other than to point out, as an earlier poster did, that it would be hard to make a case against that song's one allegedly offensive line in the wake of the hyper-violent and misogynistic lyrics of many rap songs of the last several decades.
DavidD said:All that said, little compares to the filth be pandered as lyrical accomplishment in a lot of rap and hip-hop.
Remote Control Triangle said:It would be amusing to see the over the top macho chauvinism of decades past make an appearance in todays music just to see a bunch of snowflake heads explode.
Danby Delight said:You mean like y'all's do when hip hop lyrics are under discussion? You're right, it's hilarious to see the Fox crowd lose their minds over that.
John Boy said:How ironic we went from a society that had censorship to one that opened that door wide open. Now going back to censorship based on a so called social conscience politically correct crowd. Considering what lyrics I hear in my sons rap lyrics the mainstream media attempt to impose censorship is a joke!
