Songs You Want Covered (that won't get covered due to explicit/sexual/etc content)

We know that due to the limits and censors on cable television, we will tragically never get a mashup of WAP/S&M in battles.

I know, I'm devastated as well just thinking about what we're missing out on. I'm sure Todd Tilghman's take on the song would've been phenomenal.

 

But let's reflect on some other songs that would be fantastic to hear on the show, but due to the lyrical content or whatever other reason, it won't make it to TV.

(Although I know some of these may be featured in international versions of the show)

 

I submit this classic:

 

and this bop:

A lot of RHCP songs come to mind, especially on their earlier years. Plus you´d have to get a really specific type of artist that could nail songs by them, since they could easily be busses.

 

"Darling Nikki" by Prince also comes to mind. Hell, a lot of Prince songs.

Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High (Arctic Monkeys)

Xanny (Billie Eilish)

 

Not exactly sure how the censoring of drug use works (I assume there is but idk how strict it is) but I doubt they'd let these two be sung lol

 

I've got many more but these were the two that came to mind (and have been listening lately)

They allowed this one 

i don't remember, but i think some people were mentioning that Adam and Blake gave criticism about the word "marihuana"(weed) being on the song, which would be stupid, because the last thing the coaches should criticize is the lyrics of the songs (Yes, i'm looking at you too, Xtina, i didn't watch Season 2 but i'm aware that some "incidents" happened there:giggle:

 

Also, imagine being mad at this song but being perfectly fine with a 15-year old singing "Lady Mermelade" in that same season :stealth:

 

Btw, this is irrelevant for the topic, but i think Moushumi's performance was over-hated when it aired. It wasn't as bad as people were making it out to be.

I once remember someone recommending that Desz sing “My Neck, My Back” by Khia. It would have been awkward asf, but it’s a sexually explicit song that I happened to hear a few years ago and was shocked by to say the least.

Wicked Games by The Weeknd is the firstsong that came to mind.

I still don't see how it's bad at all. I get that people were disappointed with the song choice, but it was a solid performance.

Was it? I wasn´t on IDF at the time, so no idea. I think it was solid, and she clearly won that knockout.

Yeah a lot of songs you can kind of clean up the lyrics a bit or omit certain verses (like You Oughta Know) and others they’ll let in a few non-minivan-friendly lyrics slip in (like New Americana)

Didnt the sources for S19 said Kelsie Watts did the "go down" line? Not surprised it was cut out in the TV airing.

I recall that I think. Maybe that got cut out? I have only fuzzy memories of the S19 spoilers now lol.

I couldn't come up with anything for the thread but THIS is the answer. A great song for male modern RnB singers but way too edgy for The Voice.
