Should music be edited at school dances?
Boston-area high school administrators, worried about students' increasingly vulgar music tastes, have been delivering a pointed message to DJs: Keep it clean, or we keep the paycheck.
Some DJs at school dances, have a do-not-play list - including rapper 50 Cent's "Candy Shop." The song makes thinly veiled references to oral sex by using a lollipop as a metaphor for the male sexual organ. And ''Get Low" by Lil Jon & the Eastside Boyz. Students say banning it makes little difference -- they simply shout the real lyrics over the sanitized version played by the DJ. During one verse, when the radio version of the song says ''Till the sweat drop down and fall, till all these females crawl," the students shout the original line, which includes a graphic reference to male anatomy and a vulgar term for women.
Other students say administrators are wasting their time because teens listen to unedited versions of the raunchy songs at home or in their cars anyway and know the lyrics. High school students said they plan to request ''Candy Shop" at this year's proms just to see what happens.
Are the students correct here? Honestly does editing or banning these songs really have any effect? On the other hand, by allowing these songs by parents and school administrators are we then approving these lyrics?
I hope someone can help.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
