At band practice last night a question came up: Would you feel comfortable playing "Brown Sugar"?
I don't mean comfortable from a style/dance/band point of view... I mean, would you be comfortable with the subject matter of the song - a slave master abusing a female slave?
I'm not a huge prude or anything, but I wonder how people today would react to that song in a typical club or bar? Or even a private party? Have you had any experience with it?
