Fairytale of New York - should it be censored?

If anything, Helen, it'll give his exchequer a big shot in the arm. People's interest will be piqued because the tune has all of a sudden become naughty.

I have recently seen advertisements for special screenings of Blazing Saddles in posh Hollywood movie theaters for this very same reason. Although I'm sure there are disclaimers galore and most likely lectures about the deleterious effects of any use of the n-word beforehand, I have a feeling that most folks in the theater will be lapping up all the off-color references and toilet humor with guilty pleasure.

Yeah, I should have said "won't adversely affect"....kerching!

Like Phil Coulter's elevator music, it's over-played and everywhere.
Isn't the term "Homosexual" in the homosexual sense a US thing anyway? 'Old Homosexual' was always ageist but not a sexual orientation insult iirc.

Never mind. I looked it up and you're right, Helen. My theory is indeed based on an old wives' tale.

I just hope the "dirge" is played non stop from now through to December 26th. Not only will it offend the festival of pink balloons, but certain blasphemers will be screaming "make it stop! make it stop!" throughout the Crimbo period.

*smug smile*

PS: we need a smug smiley emoticon in the "smilies" bar.

Well, I must admit, whilst I do like FONY (phony?), it's not my favourite Crimbo song.

I prefer the unorthodox Christmas jingle by The Waitresses and Patty Donahue's laid back, "chewing gum" lyricism.

The lyrics are sweet and simple, and the tune's a classic.

RTÉ DJ Eoghan McDermott has called on the broadcaster to censor the lyrics to The Pogues classic, 'Fairytale of New York', but he has never called out the band MSi. Q: Is Eoghan a total moron?
