In A World Gone Mad
Whoever thought up the idea that the lyrics to Fairytale in New York were offensive has just got to be crazy! Radio 1 deleted out some of the song to make it less offensive to people (no surprises with who were the culprits). Is it just me or does editing out "offensive" parts of a classic song that has been played in full for twenty years just show how insane this world has become? If you're going to do that, you may as well ban all rap because the language in nearly all of that is a million times more offensive than Fairytale in New York could ever be. I was pleased to hear that they'd reversed their decision and returned the song to its former glory. It just makes me wonder what will happen next.
