TRUTH !!
These are just a fraction of a list of songs that were banned by the BBC due
to the political situation at that time in the Middle East and specifically
after combat operations had commenced in what later became known as the Gulf
War. Other, usually innocuous, songs by artists that also fell foul and that
found themselves 'outside the wire' included Elton John's 'Saturday Night's
Alright for Fighting', the Maria Muldaur song 'Midnight at the Oasis',
'Hunting High and Low' by Norwegian band A-ha and the 1974 Paper Lace
release 'Billy Don't be a Hero'. All bans on any of the songs on the list,
which ran to a total of sixty-seven, have since been lifted.
