MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #487.105!
John Lennon – “Woman Is
The Nigger Of The World” (Apple) :: Just because your wife comes up with a racist feminist phrase in a magazine
interview doesn’t mean you have to use it as a song title and release it as a single, do you?
Lennon – “Angela” (Apple) :: I guess you do, especially since you can prove
that you’re down with the cause by also writing a tribute song about Black Panther supporter Angela Davis. By the way,
John Lennon has been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
The Rolling Stones
– “Sweet Black Angel” (Rolling Stones) :: Hey, Keith! If it’s good enough for Beatle John,
why don’t we combine both the racist epithet and the Angela Davis tribute in our own B-side?
Rolling Stones – “Midnight Rambler” (Decca) :: Especially since we can prove
that we’re down with the cause by writing a misogynist song that includes the line: “He’s crouching like
a proud Black Panther.”
The Rolling Stones – “Brown
Sugar” (Rolling Stones) :: Not to mention this catchy little ditty about white slavery. By the way, the Rolling
Stones have been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
– “Only Women Bleed” (Atlantic) :: Y’know, maybe if Alice had written a tribute to Angela
Davis using a racist epithet instead of writing songs protesting domestic violence against women he would’ve gotten
inducted into the Rock Hall sooner.
The Rolling Stones – “Angie”
(Rolling Stones) :: Writing a lame power ballad about David Bowie’s wife wouldn’t have hurt his chances either.
Cooper – “Iman” (Bizarre) :: On second thought, forget it. Besides, if they
excluded all the racist, adulterous, insane, suicidal, drunk-driving, wife-beating, gun-shooting, drug-addicted, devil-worshipping,
criminally convicted musicians, who’d be left?
Pat Boone –
“Ain’t That A Shame” (Dot) :: Y’know, maybe if Pat recorded a few heavy metal songs, he’d
be in the Rock Hall just like that other hard-rocking rebel Billy Joel.
– In A Metal Mood (Hip-O) :: On second thought, forget it.
Be seeing you!
