This must be just a gratuitous excuse to write some filthy words in LAUGHJOHNLAUGHS! Blog- I was researching this because the words of my first ever single - "Does my bum look big in this? " contains the word ' ass ' in a line in the third verse. "Ohh please tell me baby do you like my ASS?" which is a fair relationship question imo ...but my G/f says in church circles it is likely regarded as lewd or crude .. hmm I hadn't realized. So here is some interesting material derived from a quick search on the topic - using the search terms ' is the word ass in lyrics considered explicit ' I got some information about the 7 dirty words or seven naughty or filthy words - whatever they may be titled.

January 2018 Fuck You 'YouTube' I hate corporate speak. YouTube Letter says in effect 'hey we are keeping even more money for ourselves!' and 'we are doing this for our advertisers!

SonicBids and TAXI - PAY to PLAY Sonic Bids is a membership site that allows you to build an online Press Kit and search for gigs and songwriting opportunities. In Sonic Bids case the user joins the site usually to enter some kind of competition to get a gig or enter a songwriting competition. Seems OK so far but we the members still have to pay another entry fee for the opportunity.

What seems to me to be happening is that the musician is getting stiffed in the deal. The Promoter gets some cash and the site gets cash but what do I get Oh Oh What do I get! as the Buzzcocks asked once upon a time.
