“Why, why, why Delilah” is the refrain of Tom Jones’ pop song, which stormed the charts in the 1960s. To this day, it is hammering into the heads of a generation that grew up on this song.
Now, more than fifty years later, anxious contemporaries realize the potential danger of simple song. Because pop interpreter Tom Jones sings about a lover languishing in front of his lover’s house, who cheats on him with someone else. He fantasizes about stabbing her as soon as the rival is gone. It is unclear if the patient is actually taking action.
Regardless, Welsh rugby officials have come to believe the song is a weak plea for male fans to assassinate their partners.
The question arises of why “Delilah” is such a political issue in Wales at all. It must be remembered that Tom Jones is the national saint of suburban Britain and rugby is the main men’s sport there. In the past, accusations have been made time and time again that sexism and racism are rampant in this environment.
The rugby team has clearly learned the lesson of stepping in to correct political correctness.
