Protest Songs
on: June 16, 2020, 08:44:22
It seems in these time when protest songs are needed nobody is writing them. Protest songs have been around for ages. They were called broadside ballads in the 1700's.

I wrote one recently but it has salty lyrics and some trolls on Soundcloud  flagged it as inappropriate.

I would urge people to write 60's style protest songs and also rap songs. Raise your voices.

Create!

I donít know what it is you are looking for @CGHound .
Iíve been writing protest songs since I donít know when. Even posted several in the Kitchen. Not because I believe I can make the ship change direction, but because I like writing them.

A good protest song is either sharp or witty or both. That in itself is enough reason for some people to brand it as inappropriate. From some people a sneer is as good as a compliment. And inappropriate varies over the years. So..., donít let it stop you.
Yes, itís just an opinion, but itís my opinion.
Kind regards, Gus

I'm against protest songs!   ;) 8)

Not really. I was there in the 60's. Country Joe and the Fish. Joan Baez. Richie Havens. Creedence Clearwater Revival. Barry McGuire. Bob Dylan. Sam Cook. Even The Doors....they all did protest songs. This is a time to rival the 60's I think......I just hope that A Change Is Gonna Come. I think it is.....I feel the wind shifting.

My last few songs have been protest songs in a way. I'm just concentrating on the change rather than the problem......the solution rather then the pain.

Hi @CGHound  ..... so what happened when your song got flagged? Did you have to take it down, or mark it with an E,  or anything?

Oh ... also ..... now would be a good time to put a link to your SoundCloud in your profile. It would apppear under your name and then anyone reading this thread you started could easily click to go hear your salty songs. ;) ;D

Soundcloud removed  my entire account. It was getting a lot of listens and people were embedding it on websites. Some people were offended and the Soundcloud Gestapo removed it. I suspect the reference to Hitler and Nuremberg hit close to home seeing as how soundcloud is a German company.





I don't really write salty songs.

Here's a better version.

I just uploaded it. Let's see how long it will be before the censors flag it.

Salty indeed @CGHound  :lol:

And Trump complains that his views are being sensored...   ::)

Was there any feedback as to whether it was the salt, the politics or both that led to the censorship?

Just curious... 🤔
