Thread Name: Banned Music?
Subject: Banned Music?
I have a friend who wants to incorporate a topic into her University class regarding banned music, and I am trying to aid her in a little research. I recalled a story regarding P.F. Sloan's "Eve of Destruction" (recorded by Barry McGuire) but am looking for other songs that have been banned in the history of our country and other countries as well, or writers/singers that were blacklisted as a result of songs they wrote or recorded. Can anyone help? The unit she is teaching is on banned books, but she would like to expand that topic to include other art forms as well. She is interested not only in contemporary, but in traditional songs as well. Any help would be appreciated, if anyone can suggest anything, I can send it on to her. Thanks! -Victoria
