Songs to avoid at prom

March 31, 2012 by Ric Hansen

You’ll likely get requests for these jewels, but if you want to be invited back for Homecoming better check these at the door.  Here are the most recent adds to the National DO NOT PLAY list for schools.


Artist Title Notes


Fun We are young “Friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire state”
Make this a badchoice for schools.  Great song, but won’t fly.


Cobra Starship Middle Finger Obvious problems with this one.


Trey Songz Sex Ain’t Better than Love This is a slow song and not great for dances anyway, but then add the lyrical issues.
Although this may be true…better save this one for health class.


Flo Rida Wild Ones Pretty much focuses on drinking and sex


Chris Brown Strip Chris Brown was the show-boat on the Grammys last week.  Mostly getting negative reviews.
Not so much for his music.   People just don’t like him for what he did to Rihanna.  Anyway.  This song is nasty.  Avoid it.


Rihanna Talk that Talk The Album of the same name was released in November and her number one hit
“We Found Love” and “You Da One” both were cleared for school play.  This one is not.  Steamy, and nasty.  Put the big ‘X’ on it.


 Loverance UP! Anyone hanging out with 50Cent (Featured on this song) is gonna be naughty.  This is about as bad as it get.


Tyga Rack City Always interesting to see how the Rap thugs in the industry can warp their lyrics to be even more depraved
than the last  guy’s disgusting lyrics.  So this song references sex with your grandma and lowers the bar once
again and that’s just a small part of why you should steer clear of this.


Big Sean Dance (A**) I tried counting the number of times Big Sean sang the word A** and M**her F**ker in this song, but
lost count after 30 and 15 respectively.  I can’t help but think it is point of pride for him to brag to his rap buddies…”
Do you know how many times I sang blah blah.”  I can’t otherwise grasp the point of doing it.  Sad thing this is the
#3 song in the nation on Rhythmic Top 40 stations.
