Songs from the past that could not be released today

Morning all.

Just had a mad moment remembering Mike Samme singing 'Bird up on my bike'.

The lyric runs along the lines of
'If there's one thing that I like
It's a burn-up on my bike.
A burn-up with a bird up on my bike.'

Imagine the Twitter storm and Snowflake outrage if it were released today! All that sexism, encouraging dangerous riding, atrocious!

The laughing policeman, there's another one. He's fat and old!

'I did what I did for Maria' - murder with justification!

Let's have a cheery thread remembering the non-PC pop songs of our youth.

Changing Guard at Buckingham Palace.

The singer's accent, for a start, then saying that a soldier's life is terribly hard.
 
1) Baby its cold outside

- Because people managed to get offended by the Lyrics in the light of date rape drugs - because you could if you really try interpret the lyrics that way.

Although oddly those that called for baby its cold to be banned - failed to get outraged by rap songs that threatened sexual violence and so Im gonna smack my bitch and then im gonna giver her what she really wants - im gonna do her and she cant say no - is perfectly acceptable whilst I really cant stay - but the drinks gone to my head is vile misogyny** and promotes sexual violence


**Even the 2nd verse where the roles are reversed and he is trying to leave -


2) Fairy tale of new York -

With regard to dangerous driving look at the storm over Ed Shereen's song CaStle on the Hill which included the lyric "Driving at 90 down those Country lanes, listening to Tiny Dancer"
 
Animal fùck like a beast by W.A.S.P.

They just don't do soppy ballads like that any more
 
Rolfs Jake the peg,( with his extra leg !) could be problematical.
They could allways release it as audio over that creepy learn to swim public information film he did.
You know the one where they let him in the pool with young children,( shudder).

Furthermore, the Court of King Caractacus had some shady characters.
The fascinating witches who put the scintillating stitches in the britches of the boys.....

Do they still play Blurred Lines?
Not only was it a bit rapey, but they also stole it from Marvin Gaye.
The video has three hot chicks wearing nothing but their panties. So...

The guy who fronted the song (Robin Thicke) had his career crater the following year when his wife dumped him and he sold pitifully small numbers of the record that he made in order to get her back, so there's that, I suppose.

And Gaye's Here My Dear sold millions!
Here's a video covering the trainwreck of the album I was referring to. It's part of a series of videos called "Trainwreckords" by Todd.


That Marvin Gaye album gets a huge mention, comparing it to the subject of the video quite favourably.
 
‘In the Summer Time’ by Mungo Jerry:

It includes the line

“Have a drink, have a drive”.

And of course, anything by Gary Glitter.
 
Neil Sedaka's "Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen"

Tonight's the night I've waited for
Because you're not a baby anymore
You've turned into the prettiest girl I've ever seen,
Happy birthday sweet sixteen

What happened to that funny face
My little tomboy now wears satins and lace
I can't believe my eyes you're just a teenage dream
Happy birthday sweet sixteen


Creepy old twat
