*I suddenly feel offended that at Christmas I am assailed by artwork depicting naked babies, it's practically pornographic!
I demand any images of a naked baby should be amended to protect my delicate sensibilities!

Furthermore all nude artwork should be "improved" by painted in bikinis!

It may totally detract from the artists intended impact and message, but shut my feelings trump Art*

*= May be hyperbolic, but it is a logical extension of this stance.
Again, a silly argument. If a song played before the watershed has the word 'fúck' in it, then the word is censored out.

And once again, the word ****** has been censored in Fairy Tale of New York for decades on public radio. This is not a new change.

Sweat (A La La La La Long)
Inner Circle

I've been watching you
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
C'mon
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
Hey
Standing across the room I saw you smile
I said I want to talk to yo-o-ou, for a little while
But before I make my move my emotions start running wild
My tongue gets tied and that's no lie
I'm looking in your eyes, I'm looking in you big brown eyes
Ooh yeah, and I've got this to say to you, hey
Girl, I want to make you sweat, sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out, I'm gonna push it some more
Girl, I want to make you sweat, sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out, I'm gonna push it, push it, push it some more
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
C'mon
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long, ooh
So I said to myself, "If she loves me or not?
But the dreads done know that love is his to get
With a little bit of this and a little bit of that
The lyrics goes on the attack, my tongue gets tied and that's no lie
I'm looking in your eyes, I'm looking in your big brown eyes
Ooh girl, and I've got this to say to you, hey
Girl, I want to make you sweat, sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out, I'm gonna push it some more
Girl, I want to make you sweat, sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out, I'm gonna push it, push it, push it some more
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
Ooh, yeah
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
One more time
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
Sing it
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
Hey
Woo, woo, woo, woo, wee, yeah, eyes
I'm lookin' in your big brown eyes, ooh yeah
And I've got this to say to you, hey
Girl, I want to make you sweat, sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out, I'm gonna push it some more
Girl, I want to make you sweat, sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out, I'm gonna push it, push it, push it some more
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
Yeah
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
Push it, push it some more
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
Alright
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long
Push it, push it some more

Another RTE DJ Stephen Byrne has come out with issues with the songs as well.

Isn’t that Dire straits song “money for nothing” censored as well?

“See the little ****** with the earring and the make-up
Yeah buddy that's his own hair
That little ****** got his own jet airplane
That little ****** he's millionaire”

I think this verse has been completely left out for years.

Jesus, what happened to the time when young folk and in particular djs were pushing all kinds of new boundaries....now the older folk have become what the younger folk used to be...the young are dictating how we all need to behave in a more inclusive diverse gender neutral way...is there some book where they are getting all this s##te from?

I propose we do away with all "controversial" Xmas songs the world over and just play "Simply having a wonderful Christmas time" over and over and over again.

Lyrics are pretty safe in that one. No slut or ****** anyways.

Might be better to say "Simply having a wonderful Holiday time"
