So no women throwing their underwear.
So the article didn’t mention specifically why this song was banned.
“I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door; she stood there laughing, I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more.”
Looks like “Banks of the Ohio” will be on the chopping block soon. I heard Joan Baez’ rendition first in ‘76. She changed the genders of the killer and the victim - perhaps the original will be promoted?
The key words:
”I held a knife against her breast
as into my arms she pressed
She cried, ‘My love, don’t you murder me
I’m not prepared for eternity.’”
Finally had a listen to the whole song after only ever hearing clips of "My my my Delilah". Seems a strange choice of song for a rugby anthem.
how about 'I shot the sheriff'? or is that okay because the sheriff was male (presumably). and 'Hey Joe' of course..... better ban all songs, just to be on the safe side. （⌒▽⌒）
A choral rendition of "Stagger Lee" would be quite interesting. I wonder how that would go down.
Sure as when the Welsh Rugby also gotten caught for shooting the sheriff yet? Lol
I agree with that.
I'd ban the song from rugby matches for a different reason: It's just a dumb song to play at a rugby match.
Censorship is toxic. I hope the fans sing it all through the game.
