marymarymary songs being banned by ClearChannel (45) RE: songs being banned by ClearChannel 18 Sep 01

After thinking on it for awhile, the only thing I can see that might upset someone listening to Ob-la-di Ob-la-da are the facts that "Desmond has a barrow in the market place" and that he and Molly are "happy ever after" there. I guess that, by a g-r-e-a-t stretch of the imagination, someone might reason that people *trade* things in a market place, and that World *Trade* Center was destroyed, and that "ever after" is something like "the great Hereafter", or "the Great Beyond", so that implying that Desmond Jones was "happy in [the] ever-after in the marketplace" is extremely insensitive.

I guess to be a censor you need a fertile imagination...
