"One Night"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I ain't never did no wrong
Why They're Nonsensical:
The lyrics are in English, but a very mangled form of it, as one can see from this triple-negative, which implies that the narrator "always did no wrong", which means that he always did right. So it could actually have four negatives.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Return To Sender"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.
Why They're Inappropriate:
These lines have also been cited as dated, because zip codes have replaced zone numbers, and for that matter, I haven't know of the U.S. postal service returning anything to sender in quite some years. however, I do remember how years ago letters were sometimes returned with a stamp (ink stamp, that is) applied to them with blanks to check the reason for the mail being returned. one possible reason that I saw so indicated was "addressee unknown". I don't remember any such category as "address unknown". that makes sense, for as long as an address were unknown, how would one be motivated to even try sending the letter? so the "address unknown" reference in the song is in all likelihood a confused impression of the "addressee unknown" category.
Submitted by: Connie Brady
 

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Return To Sender"
The Dated Lyrics:
Return to sednder, address unknown
Why They're Dated:
Previous posts have noted the dated nature of the phrase "no such zone" in the line following this one, as U. S. postal zones were replaced by zip codes in 1963 (the year after this song came out!). But this line too seems to be dated, as far as I know. I don't now of the U.S. Postal service returning anything to sender anymore. It used to be that one of the reasons for returning a letter to sender was for neglecting to put any postage stamps on it. But the last time I mailed a letter forgetting to put stamps on it (within the last few years) I never saw it again. Incidally I do remember how years ago letters were sometimes returned with a stamp (ink stamp, that is) applied to them with blanks to check the reason for the mail being returned. One possible reason that I saw so indicated was "ADDRESSEE unknown". I don't remember any such category as "ADDRESS unknown". That makes sense, for as long as an address were unknown, how would one be motivated to even try sending the letter?
Submitted by: Connie Brady
"I Need Your Love Tonight"
The Dated Lyrics:
I got the hi-fi high and the lights down low
Why They're Dated:
If you can remember the 1950s or early 1960s, you might remember a then 'state of the art' record player being referred to as a 'hi-fi'. That was short for 'high fidelity', meaning sound recordings had reached a level of faithful reproduction that much reduced distortion, hiss, etc. But if you're not old enough to remember that, the term 'hi-fi' might not at all compute with you. Even though recordings have become, if anything, progressively more high fidelity, that became an obsolescent name for recordings and the machines for playing them, about the time stereo became normative, and a player of vinyl records was soon more likely to be called a 'stereo' than a 'hi-fi'. In other words, the term 'hi-fi' was symptomatic of the period when such high fidelity was a new-fangled thing, and not something to be used as a name when high fidelity was to be taken for granted as further sound recording refinements (like stereo, digital, etc.), came into being. As vinyl records later gave way to eight track tapes, cassette tapes, and then compact discs, I'm not aware of the term ever being applied to a player of anything but vinyl records. Though we literally have continued to enjoy higher and higher fidelity recordings played on those later devices, the term 'hi-fi' has been strictly passe for decades.

Songs That Are Banned:

"Wear My Ring Around Your Neck"

"White Christmas"
In December 1957, Disc Jockey Al Priddy of KEX in Portland, Oregon is fired for violating the radio station's band against playing Elvis Presley's rendition of "White Christmas" (Elvis' first Christmas album in the target of many boycotts and bans due to the fact that Elvis doesn't really reflect, "Christian values"). 1957 is also the year that Ed Sullivan refused to show Elvis from the waist down to the "suggestiveness" of Elvis' hip or pelvis movements, and Elvis and the new music form of Rock 'n' Roll, in general, are the target of many Christian organization's bans and boycotts.

When he first appeared on the Milton Berle Show Elvis was swiveling his hips and dancing, which was touted by parent's groups as being obsene, and pan mail came into Milton's show.
