Hey!
I just read an article that the chinese government banned some Songs from various Artists including Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.

So i got curious and googled if there was an extra Chinese Edit of Back To Black and as you can see there is one, but it only has 8 Tracks:

http://www.cover-isl...lack_china.html

Missing Songs are: Me & Mr Jones, Back To Black (lol) & Addicted.

Does that have something to do with the lyrics?

Makes sense.

As :

Me & Mr. Jones = Fuckery (line)
Back to Black = Puff/Heroine, Blow/Coke
Addicted = Well the entire song is about Cannabis.

Makes sense. China censores everything.

SIGNATURE REMOVED. PLEASE MAKE SURE SIGNATURE DOES NOT EXCEED 500x200 PIXELS.

you talking about china?
china government is extremely autocratic an obsolete。
and there are extremely few people know what is jazz,what is soul,what is blues,what is country,,,etc。they just know pop,totally disgustting pop。
maybe you could say there is no valuable music in china,just rubbish all around。
but hopefully,there are some young people like amy,

It's such a shame that they would censor such amazing songs. Especially when they removed some of the best tracks from the album. :(

If I lived in China, they'd censor my face. I am serious. There's nothing that they don't censor. Thank god for the internet though, imagine what it would be like if it didn't exist. They'd never even get to listen to the best tracks on this album!

Ha, internet is censored there as well... The gov. has an agreement (!) with Google search engine (among others) not to display some content judged as inappropriate. As you can see bisness is business and that's why google is more or less ok with those practices...

And do you remember how Amy's topless lady tatoo was censored in US on one of her her single's cover? The censorship is vivid not only in China.

I think, that's why they produce all fake things. I mean, original ones were banned so they produce fake ones...

What? Are you kidding me?
There must be a way around the censorship, there must be sites that allow certain things? :amyshock:

Isn't it a thing that providers do - I mean blocking sites, and by doing so - censoring the internet? I'm really shocked by this. Isn't it more like an agreement providers sign? 'cause that does happen here, or uhm, they're trying to make it happen.
