Songs About Rumors and Gossip

Now more than ever we are seeing and experiencing the confusion and harm that fake news and misinformation can cause and how hard it can be to separate fact from fiction.  It just happens faster now.                                                                                  So: Songs about rumors and gossip - true, false, or anywhere in between

Devil’s Radio-George Harrison 

 

Gossip, gossip
Gossip, gossip
I heard it in the night
Words that thoughtless speak
Like vultures swooping down below
On the devil's radio
