Sensitive Songs

Listen carefully to your music for what might seem like insensitivity to some folks. Lyrics that strike me as inappropriate right now, for example..

Garth Brooks/Calling Baton Rouge
Mel McDaniel/Louisiana Saturday Night
Tanya Tucker/Two Sparrows In A Hurricane
Terri Clark/I Wanna Do It All

Are you hearing any others?

Judging by the list you give, your focus is on country stations, but this was too obvious to go unmentioned: I've been hearing a lot of Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks" on the radio this week. Great song under normal circumstances, but right now someone needs a punch in the snoot every time they decide to put it on the air.

For country, there's always "Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight" (artist?) or "Hurricane" by Lee Greenwood. said...

...also "Down At The Twist & Shout" - (there's hurricane parties everytime it blows).

I just had Garth's "Baton Rouge" and Faith's "Mississippi Girl" in the same QH......turned into a decent ramp to plug the links to help out.....

You don't HAVE to drop these songs as long as the talent is paying attention and makes something of them when they do come up.
