Should The Point Play Kesha’s ‘Die Young?’
94.3 The Point sends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. We are always sensitive to the feelings of you, the listener, as it's our job to provide you with the best music, entertainment and information. Your input is always welcome, and in this case we are asking you to help us make a very important musical decision.
Kesha‘s ‘Die Young,’ was an indirect casualty of the Newtown, CT. massacre. Before the shooting, it was the number one song in the country.
It’s worth noting that ‘Die Young’ isn’t actually about dying young, but about living life to the fullest, though the title is repeated in the chorus:
I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums / Oh what a shame that you came here with someone / So while you’re here in my arms / Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young / We’re gonna die young / We’re gonna die young / Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young.
We are asking for your feedback. Ultimately, it will determine whether The Point continues to play the song or not.
