Songs that couldn't be played after 9/11…

Meg just threw me a list of songs with questionable lyrics that she found on the web. Songs – presumably – that people have decided not to play during the current events. Which possibly explains why everyone feels so suffocated. Part of me thinks that some of these songs should be being played. Why can’t John Lennon’s Imagine be heard? It’s message should be more true now than at any other time, surely? And “Walk Like An Egyptian”? What possible reason could there be for not playing that? [lyrics]. And while I understand why it’s not being played, I desperately need to hear REM’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It” at the moment. There has to be some release for the anxiety that seems to be building again.
