Thread Name: Is this song appropriate?: Slap Her Down Again Paw
Subject: RE: Is this tune appropriate?: Slap Her Down Again Paw
well...almost all of stupid human behavior is documented in song somewhere--some seriously, some humorously- some condemning, some just documenting.. I suppose that ANY song about rape, beating, murder, decapitation, spouse or child abuse, etc. would bring up uncomfortable feelings in 'somone', but unless it is obvious that the singer is praising or advocating anti-social behavior, I can't let my personal discomfort with a topic lead me to ask someone NOT to document *life* in song........in fact, I would worry if some topics were totally avoided. Figuring out how to do it in reasonable 'good taste' and decent music is another issue.
