Does the same apply to someone singing Mill o'Tiftie's Annie? Or is that OK because the narration is on Annie's side and (mildly) critical of her family ("Woe be tae her brither")?

Or what about the ballads (two of them) where a Scots girl is burnt at the stake for refusing to abandon her love of an Englishman?
