*) This song was banned by the British Broadcasting Corporation, marked: "THIS RECORD IS NOT TO BE BROADCAST". (As was "God Bless the Child" in 1942.)
When the Hungarian song, "Szomor? Vasarnap", was introduced in 1936, some listeners did commit suicide. It reached the US in 1941 via Paul Robeson and then a best-selling record by Billie Holiday. Because of lines like "My heart and I have decided to end it all", the song was banned by the BBC on grounds of "bad taste". The ban was still in force in 1964. Perhaps just as well as four years later, its composer, Rezsoe Seres, killed himself by jumping from a hotel window.
