Thread Name: Banned Music?
Subject: RE: Banned Music?
In the Fifties, the BBC banned 'Nobody Loves Like an Irishman' because the reference to the Koran was felt might be offensive. They also banned 'Answer me Lord Above' and accepted the altered version 'Answer me Oh My Love'

The Royal Navy banned sea shanties and used a fiddler to accompany work on board.
