NATIONAL “DO NOT PLAY” UPDATE 12/5/12Posted by: admin on 12/05/2012
We have a record number of additions to the National DO NOT PLAY list this week. Ten in all. While popular dance music is moving more toward rock, pop and dubstep the songs that dominate our DO NOT PLAY list are primarily from the HIP HOP, Rap and Rhythmic genre.
One of our Safe Songs, was re-evaluated based on school feedback and now has been moved to the DO NOT PLAY list. It is Locked out of Heaven by Bruno Mars. It is definitely borderline…..but the lyric that has cause issue is the repeated chorus: ”Your sex takes me to paradise”.
Besides the obvious use of foul language, school administrators are watching out for song that promote sex, drugs/alcohol and violence. When screening our song for the Do Not Play list…these are the ones that did not make the grade this month. Avoid them.
|New||Bruno Mars||Locked out of Heaven||“Your sex takes me to paradise”|
|New||Game||Celebration||It is all about smoking dope and and drugs….|
|New||The Weekend||Wicked Games||Some lyrics could be fixed but it is a slow balad so isnt and good any way….|
|New||Lil Wayne||No Worries||Bad words, promotes drugs, nasty message…no good. Typical Lil Wayne|
|New||Meek Mill||Young and Gettin it||It’s not just talking about getting sex, it promotes smoking dope and is foul in oh so many ways|
|New||T.I. / Lil Wayne||Ball||This club so packed, these hoes so drunk. Over and over.|
|New||2 Chains||I’m Different||It’s all bad.|
|New||Wiz Khalifa||Remember||Smoking dope and other rude and unsavory lyrics|
|New||Big Sean||Guap||Guap is slang for a large amount of money, usually cash and spent on consumer items. Song glorifies using it for all sort of bad things.|
|New||Ludacris-Usher||Rest of my life||This is actually a great dance song with techno overtones…but it clearly talks about driinks and alcohol…so goes in DNP|
