I am loving the autumn season right now, as we seem to be getting a little more sun then is regular; I say regular as normal is not quite the word for all our lives at this particular moment. It is so important to get out there, whilst we have to support the current life we have and to de-stress, as there is always something else to throw us off.
Take for instance the recent media malarkey about the Christmas classic hit from the Pogues, and how we need to accept the derogatory word choices of a time should not be ignored and allowed to continue in use, as if acceptable. Offensive and derogatory terms aside, I for one have no problem generally with swears in some songs, though I tend to find sometimes there is really no need. Naturally, it’s a pain for the broadcast industry, as we need to be respectful and remove those words with a tactful radio edit. As I say some songs don’t really need them to be fine in its direction, minus the expletive.
So it sort of begs the question’s in this week’s chatty bit- Do you feel the swears are needed in a song to be a real expression and or What hits songs with swears would be as good without?
