Censoring the Music (Titles)

A Roguish Chrestomathy is perplexed by the censorship by Itunes.
As the blog notes:
Further searching reveals that there does indeed seem to be a (foolish) consistency to iTunes's bleeping policy. The word cock is bleeped to c**k in song titles and album titles (but not in artists' names) if it is an entire word, but not if it is part of a compound. Thus we find asterisks aplenty in traditional children's songs...
