words by Tom Waits
(‘Everything you can think‘ – 2001)
Mary Elizabeth “Tipper“ Gore (wife of ex-vice-president Al Gore jr.) is mostly remembered for championing
record censorship in 1985 as part of the Parents' Music Resource Center (PMRC).
The PMRC's goals were clearly defined: 'to educate and inform parents
of this alarming new trend...towards lyrics that are sexually explicit'.
