Banned: Let's Spend the Night Together - The Rolling Stones

I can't decide if Wings' "Uncle Albert" would banned (Hands Across the Water, Hands Across the Sky) or approved as a warning/I told you so/apology (We're so sorry, Uncle Albert)...

Don’t worry be happy should also be approved. Not only the message of being happy in hard times but put that song on a loop and no one will be anywhere near you.
