Random musing whilst listening to the tail-end of 0304 in the car today.

In 'America', the f-bomb is censored - but was there ever a version released with the expletive actually included?

Nah, all copies are censored. I remember her saying something about how it's like a small commentary on censorship in the US. :)

Interesting, never knew that - thanks. Am glad I asked!

Ah, I was trying to find the interview where I read it and I finally did! From Aug. 2003. :)

BT: You bleep out the word "fucking"-why do you do that?

J: [laughs] I always get real funny about it because I curse quite a lot in my daily life.

BT: I found it very strange that you censor it- the word sticks out more because you do.

J: I like talking about censorship, and sometimes the best way to do that is to put it in the song. It's ironic to me. Nobody else will probably think it's very funny, but I get a kick out of it because it's silly. It's a kind of denial.

Cool, thanks for that. You did well to remember it from so long ago too!

I love Jewel :wub:

It was so nice of her to retweet Cher's film.  What a gal! :wub: :wub: :wub:

I hope we can see it!  It's nowhere near it's goal right now, though. :(

Help?  https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/don-t-just-talk-about-it#/

There's a new "Pulse of Americana" playlist on Spotify.


...


Jewel's not on it. :(

Ya know - I have no clue where or what stations are playing her.  I was in a Taco Bell, and she came on after Rage Against the Machine  :confused: It was MFD.

I also hear her in regular rotation at the grocery store.  Which is usually from GAIW - wait, maybe it's her Greatest Hits.  Either way, it's not the new album.   :shrug2:

To me, it is a cold reminder of two things:

1. Record companies do a lot more than the general public gives them credit.

2. Spotify is definitely in the above's pocket - even more than I first imagined.

There's no Jewel in any playlist - not even the acoustic coffee shop ones.  Who's more coffee shop acoustic than Jewel?  Apparently covers of Taylor Swift songs by people I'd never heard of who apparently have record companies behind them.

I honestly have no idea how the whole SirusXM thing works vs. radio. :grandma:

Speaking of Taylor Swift, did you notice her throwback look - I swear she was trying to look like Jewel c.1996-97 in that black outfit in the Shake It Off video.

I think I've seen that video.  I can't remember.

I like name dropping Taylor Swift a lot as you've noticed but I really don't follow the kid. I'm sure she's very nice, though!

 :grandma: I was subjected to it when the Mrs great-neice was here.  Of course, I was all: "is she trying to be Jewel?"  To which the little brat replied; "who is Jewel"   :banghead:

No, it really wasn't worth the effort.  Some things are sacred.  She is a straight up, Barbie buying (although she kinda moved into Monster High), hick.  Me and the extendeds don't discuss music.  (Dueling Banjos plays in the distance...)

At our family vacation in Florida in June, my 21 y/o, music major, niece, asked who was the artist on the CD playing in the car? (Goodbye Alice in Wonderland) I told her it was Jewel, my brother-in-law responded with, Jewel was a new age, pop singer popular in the '90's.  :o

In the end she said she liked her and would check out more Jewel music.  :bump:
