Should schools ban songs from prom? This one did.
Sweet little babies grow up to be teenagers who "Get Low," "Right Round," and "Smack That." No, we are not talking about the teens who actually become prostitutes, just the ones who enjoy the top 40 dance hits of today. Several of these popular tracks glorify prostitution, casual sex, and inspire some major bumping and grinding on the dance floor. Go observe some teenagers at a party ... it's a sight to see.
Gone are the days when prom meant wearing gloves and drinking punch, and polite invitations to slow-dance. After all the hard work of high school and applying to college, many students go on to schools that host "Pimp and Ho" theme parties. It's so charming.
The Women's Health and Issues Club at Arcadia High School in Southern California decided to take action. They made a list of three hundred songs that they find objectionable and degrading to women and asked that those songs not be included in the playlist at the prom. This request led to the school banning twenty songs:
"Shake" - Pitbull
"Get Buck in Here" - P. Diddy
"Drop" - Timbaland
"Low" - Flo Rida
"One More Drink" - Ludacris
"Starstruck" - Lady Gaga
"Go Girl" - Pitbull
"Right Round" - Flo Rida
"Smack That" - Akon
"Lollipop" - Lil' Wayne
"Get Low" - Lil' Jon
"Turning Me On" - Keri Hilson (feat. Lil' Wayne)
"Rockin' That Thang" - The Dream
"Beep" - Bobby Valentino (feat. Young Jac)
"Boom, Shake, Drop" - DJ Laz
"Turn Me On" - Kevin Little
"I'm In Miami" - LMFAO
"A Mille" - Lil' Wayne
"Bojangles" - Pitbull
"Put that Thang Down" - Ying Yang Twins
