ollaimh Politically incorrect songs (113* d) RE: Politically incorrect songs 10 Jan 13


ps when i was foolish enough to attend the vancpouver folk ss, they were all upset by rape songs.

under the rubric of rape songs were:

bogies bonny belle,(no one asks her opinion)
the blacksmith,(she's been lied to by a cad to have sex)
lilly of the west(stalking and murder of a f rival)

and don't ever dare sing delia's gone by johnny cash.

much as i love ytah phillips i hate his song "rock salt and nails", even i get offended that he's loading his shotgun to shoot his ex and her new beau,but i mostly think traditional songs should be preserved and sung--within reason
