Anybody remember Bette Midler's version of "Do You Wanna Dance?" Here are some of the lyrics.

"Do You Want To Dance?"

Do you wanna dance, and hold my hand?
Tell me you're my lover man.
Oh baby, do you wanna dance?

We could dance under the moonlight,
hug and kiss all through the night.
Oh baby, tell me, do you wanna dance with me baby?

Ah, that's right, ah, ah, aaaaaaaah.
Do you want to dance under the moonlight?
Hug me, kiss me, baby, all through the night.
Oh baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, tell me, do you want to dance?


I'm a pretty good tape editor, but my buddy Scott is a REALLY good tape editor (he's also a drummer, which helps a lot). So he took this record and "censored" it with bleeps and other sound effects. The result:

"Do You Want To Dance?"

Do you wanna BLEEP, and hold my BLEEP?
Tell me you're my lover man.
Oh baby, do you wanna BLEEP
We could BLEEP under the moonlight,
hug and BLEEP all through the night.
Oh baby, tell me, do you wanna BLEEP with me baby?

Ah, that's right, ah, ah, aaaaaaaah.
Do you want to BLEEP under the moonlight?
BLEEP me, BLEEP me, baby, all through the night.
Oh baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, tell me, do you want to BLEEP?


Friends at a number of major market radio stations played it as a joke, but the audiences complained, so they had to go back to playing the "uncensored" version.

It's a funny old world.
