Once Banned Songs Now Acceptable

Wise choices create the outcomes we desire.

There was a time in the 1960’s that certain songs were banned from the radio. Louie Louie was one of those songs.

Fast forward to the 21st century. Times have changed. Personally, I’m very happy with most of those changes, too.

Paul Revere (age 76 now) and the Raiders perform at EPCOT’s annual Flower Power Concert Series for the Flower and Garden Festival. Louie Louie is performed. Yes. At Disney.

Yes, times have changed. It’s terrific to hear Louie Louie performed. I always loved the song, Paul Revere and the Raiders, and music in general.

Here’s an original of the Louie Louie.

And, here’s a show from 2013 at EPCOT — just in case you’ve never seen them live. If you haven’t, you have missed the “Last madman of Rock ‘n Roll” and you owe it to yourself to watch. I love that I can run up to EPCOT any day I choose and listen to great oldies every April.

What once banned song do you love to listen to?

      Thanks, Nick. Yep. Always one of my faves. Possibly because it was banned. ;)

    Not sure if this was banned. But this song was controversial. It’s a Filipino song, but the article explained it well in English. http://diversityhuman.com/hollywood/index.php/Friend-Blogs/meaning-eraserheads-song-spolarium-pepsi-paloma-rape-case
