Thread Name: Inappropriate Songs
Subject: RE: Inappropriate Songs
As JHW says, sometimes songs are inappropriate for a particular reason with a particular group of people. I have never felt very comfortable with songs
Ike "Blue Bleezin' Blind Drunk" or "Glasgow Lullaby" - not been a victim myself, thank goodness, but they are about wife battering.
"Goodbye Booze" - might be a struggling alcoholic in the room.....
But the worst, although done in all innocence, was when someone sang a song about having cancer, right next to someone who was then undergoing chemotherapy: most of us knew, but the singer didn't!
