Thread Name: Banned Music?
Subject: RE: Banned Music?
I've always heard that Billie Holiday's "Gloomy Sunday" was banned from radio play because of the number of suicides that were attributable to that song.

I've also been told that it was once considered treasonous to sing "Solidarity Forever" and perhaps other songs of that ilk.
