The Slice

What’s that? Hawaiian noises?

See if you can guess what word in "Money for Nothing" cable TV's Music Choice felt necessary to censor?

Yes, it's a slur. But can't we assume that listeners understand that the character being played by the singer is being presented as a bitter dolt?

The change didn't ruin the song for me. But I prefer hearing it the way Mark Knopfler intended.

I guess this isn't a new issue, though.
