Heard Icono Pop's I love It on the radio today.  I think they changed "I threw your sh*t into a bag" to "I threw your stuff", and "I'm a 90's b**ch" to witch instead.  Did I hear that right?

Another one I can think of is that song by Pink, can't remember the name.  Instead of "I had a sh*t day, you had a sh*t day", it ends up just being "I had a sh day, you had a sh day", which sounds ridiculous.

Can you think of any other censored songs?

Pink is notoriously censored - In another song she doess she states 'all I ask for is one ****ing hour' and 'leave me the **** alone'.

There's heaps!

"but it was not your fault but mine
and it was your heart on the line
I really effed it up this time
didn't I my dear, didn't I my dear"

or

" I wanna ef you like an animal"

or that one by Lilly Allen about sleeping in the wet spot- that was censored some way as well I think.

It's chick actually and I thought those were the lyrics blush.gif No wonder I always want to sing b**ch laughing2.gif

I actually despair at commercial radio when I have the kids around. I honestly do not think there is one popular song with appropriate lyrics that I can think of.

Travie McCoy - Billionaire.

I actually thought it was "I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad" but then my niece played the uncensored version on her ipod and quite clearly said "****ing"

P!nk is a good one, she also had 'Leave Me Alone, I'm Lonely' (all I want is just one ****in' hour) and 'Perfect' (less than ****in' perfect).

I'm not loving the censored "Scream and Shout" by Britney Spears and Will.I.Am

The lyrics are:

When you hear this in the club
You're going to turn this sh*t up
You're going to turn this sh*t up
You're going to turn this sh*t up

It just says

You're going to turn turn it up

Thrift Shop is one that is heavily censored.

Six degrees of Separation by The Script

censored version

First, you think the worst is a broken heart
What's gonna kill you is the second part
And the third, is when your world splits down the middle
And fourth, you're gonna think that you fixed yourself
Fifth, you see them out with someone else
And the sixth, is when you admit that you may have messed up a little.

Uncensored version
Last line

And the sixth, is when you admit that you may have ****ed up a little.

I think it just got blanked out.  I've heard a version where they substitute the rude words with silly sounds like springs and whistles.  I love that song, didn't realise what she was singing about until I paid attention blush.gif

The radio station I listen to just removes the sound from the middle of swear words. So instead of the whole word it is "f" slight pause "ing" or "f" pause "k" so it kind of defeats the purpose but I guess they are just doing the minimum of what is mandatory?

I have never figured it out, sometimes they play the songs uncensored and other times they censor - for the same songs. Maybe it's a time of day thing? Never thought about it enough to care or investigate really.

ETA - I have never ever heard word substitution on the radio station I listen to, that just seems so odd.

James Blunt - you're beautiful.

Radio version - flying high
Un censored - f&$king high

This song is on my DDs kinder video. Unfortunately, the mum that made it didn't realise there were two versions and put the un censored one on!

Triple J usually play songs uncensored and give a language warning.  Much better.

I was just singing Thrift Shop to myself  biggrin.gif

"Thrift Shop"
(feat. Wanz)


Hey, Macklemore! Can we go thrift shopping?

What, what, what, what... [x7]

Bada, badada, badada, bada... [x9]

[Hook:]
I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up
This is ****ing awesome

[Verse 1:]
Nah, Walk up to the club like, "What up, I got a big c*ck!"
I'm so pumped about some sh*t from the thrift shop
Ice on the fringe, it's so damn frosty
That people like, "Damn! That's a cold ass honkey."
Rollin' in, hella deep, headin' to the mezzanine,
Dressed in all pink, 'cept my gator shoes, those are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girls standin' next to me
Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R. Kelly's sheets
(Piiisssssss)
But sh*t, it was ninety-nine cents! (Bag it)
Coppin' it, washin' it, 'bout to go and get some compliments
Passin' up on those moccasins someone else's been walkin' in
But me and grungy ****in it man
I am stuntin' and flossin' and
Savin' my money and I'm hella happy that's a bargain, b**ch
I'ma take your grandpa's style, I'ma take your grandpa's style,
No for real - ask your grandpa - can I have his hand-me-downs? (Thank you)
Velour jumpsuit and some house slippers
Dookie brown leather jacket that I found diggin'
They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard
I bought a skeet blanket, then I bought a kneeboard
Hello, hello, my ace man, my Mello
John Wayne ain't got nothing on my fringe game, hell no
I could take some Pro Wings, make them cool, sell those
The sneaker heads would be like "Aw, he got the Velcros"

[Hook x2]

[Verse 2:]
What you know about rockin' a wolf on your noggin?
What you knowin' about wearin' a fur fox skin?
I'm digging, I'm digging, I'm searching right through that luggage
One man's trash, that's another man's come-up
Thank your granddad for donating that plaid button-up shirt
'Cause right now I'm up in her skirt
I'm at the Goodwill, you can find me in the (Uptons)
I'm not, I'm not sick of searchin' in that section (Uptons)
Your grammy, your aunty, your momma, your mammy
I'll take those flannel zebra jammies, second-hand, I rock that mother****er
The built-in onesie with the socks on that mother****er
I hit the party and they stop in that mother****er
They be like, "Oh, that Gucci - that's hella tight."
I'm like, "Yo - that's fifty dollars for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant b**ch (sh*t)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (sh*t)
I call that getting tricked by a business
That shirt's hella dough
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don't
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Trying to get girls from a brand? Man you hella won't
Man you hella won't

(Goodwill... poppin' tags... yeah!)

[Hook]

[Bridge: x2]
I wear your granddad's clothes
I look incredible
I'm in this big ass coat
From that thrift shop down the road

[Hook]

Is that your grandma's coat?

Yep, it's blanked out by an instrumental interlude.

LOL - you remind me of a previous colleague, who was a little bit on the innocent side & heard the uncensored version of that song for the first time during a work road trip.

It made for an amusing remainder of the trip.

My kids love Macklemore's One Love  - but radio station cuts out the weirdest parts and it makes no sense.  I don't think the word they bleep out here is offensive when used in this context so I don't see why they do it.

If I was gay
I would think hip-hop hates me
Have you read the YouTube comments lately
“Man that’s gay”
Gets dropped on the daily
We’ve become so numb to what we’re sayin’
Our culture founded from oppression
Yeah, we don’t have acceptance for ‘em
Call each other faggots
Behind the keys of a message board
A word routed in hate
Yet our genre still ignores it
Gay is synonymous with the lesser



So they just silence out the word faggots.  

But on the next song you can quite clearly hear the words 'Britttany b**ch"    huh.gif



Personally I'm enjoying the Macklemore album,  his lyrics are quite inspirational, but I won't let my kids listen to all of it as the language is very explicit.


You can buy clean versions of a lot of songs on itunes  - Like Thrift Shop if you don't want your kids listening to the bad words.

This thread has reaffirmed why I listen to Triple J.

To be honest I always found it odd the things that aren't censored. Drop a few f bombs and you get censored, but singing about supermanning that ho is fine  huh.gif I'd much prefer DS listen to something like Thrift Shop or Same Love with all the nasties left in than some of the innuendo, subtle and not so subtle, you get in a lot of songs.

But that's probably a whole other thread wink.gif

Yeah, that's what I think.

Amusingly, I once heard Ceelo Green's "F*** You" start playing in an icecream parlour and I was pretty startled. Turns out it was the radio edit, where he sings "And I'm like, forget you". With the other lyrics it makes no sense whatsoever.
