Iran bans music

The Iranian Supreme Council has banned the playing of "Green World" after it became a rallying anthem for demonstrators at Freedom Square. The song is found among a collection of Unbelievably Great Music from composer and producer Ara. Apparently supporters of Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who signal their political ties by wearing the color green, have taken to singing the song during marches and peaceful protests.

Assistant Supreme Cleric Allah Duiz Dahnsz issued the edict from government controlled television stations. "We will continue to help guide our citizens into healthy cultural forms of expression, and steer them from blasphemous western influences that cause women to desire to party naked in the streets. It is not true that we keep our women covered because out here in the desert the heat makes a man more lustful and sex crazed than a horny toad stuck on a cactus spine. No, we do not covet our neighbors' wife, no matter that Iranian women are the most beautiful in the world, and when one but gazes in their eyes it is all one can do to make way quickly to the mosque, alas unless coming upon wandering sheep sooner and succumbing to unspeakable temptations. The Iranians are a strong, proud people. Allah help us if we start listening to reggae."

Reached for comment, Ara stated "My family has supported the Iranian peoples' dreams of a good life since I was a boy. As I say in the song, 'Let's make it a green world'."
