A few weeks back on a '75 show, we heard Alice Cooper's "Only Women". He always sings the phrase, "Only Women Bleed" in the tune. It was a song about an abusive marriage yet the record company assumed people would think it was about something else, so they eliminated "Bleed" from the title.
The Brothers Johnsons' 1977 hit "Strawberry Letter #23" should have really been titled "Strawberry Letter 22"
According to the songwriter (Shuggie Otis) the singer is responding to letter #22 (in a series of love letters) and the song is his gift to the girl (Strawberry Letter 23). Well how about that I learned something today and I hope you did too.
