BBC banned these songs

As we now live in an age in which people of a prudish and authoritarian bent, (such as Australia's religious-right Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, and Senator Conroy, who want to give Australia the most restricted Internet outside Iran and China), know what's best for you, it's interesting to see a list of songs that were banned by the BBC.

These include such society-ruining songs as John Lennon's 'Imagine' and 'I am the Walrus'; Paul McCartney and Wings's 'Give Ireland Back to the Irish'; Bob Dylan's 'Baby, Let Me Follow You Down'; Noel Coward's 'Don't Let's Be Beastly to the Germans', and 'In the Air Tonight' by Phil Collins.

It's so comforting to know that there's always going to be someone who will protect us from corruption. They are obviously smarter than us, not just more powerful.
