Rev songs being banned by ClearChannel (45) RE: songs being banned by ClearChannel 19 Sep 01


This story is now being reported on the ABC News site, and they've printed a list of songs, sounds like the same list everyone here is talking about. Here is the URL -- http://www.abcnews.go.com/sections/entertainment/DailyNews/songs010918.html#

I must say, on tuesday night (or early wednesday morning) as I was driving home after watching the tv coverage at a friends house, a radio station here in Santa Barbara was playing the Steve Miller Band version of "Jet Airliner" and although I instinctively began singing along I soon felt a bit uncomfortable. It seemed kind of inappropriate. So maybe "Leavin' on a Jet Plane" or "It's the End of the World as We Know it," can be seen as a bit tasteless right now, but for Heaven's sake, Clear Channel should give people some credit! I heard Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper" the other day and found it surprisingly uplifting! A lot of the songs on the list are the kind of emotionally cathartic songs that we all need right now.
