Subject: RE: Is this tune appropriate?: Slap Her Down Again Paw
I've never heard the 'Slap Her Down Again' song but the sentiments - to me - reek of honor killings.

The only time I would sing it, I think, is when the group/song circle had devolved one after another into unrelentingly sad/cruel/unhappy/gory songs. That's what I do with 'Knoxville Girl'. It gets us onto a different genre, right quick.
