Can you remember a favourite song when it was first released and you wanted to listen to it over and over? I remember a neighbour, with very thin walls separating us, in an apartment building playing Sinead O’Connor’s version of Nothing Compares 2 U over and over. I hated it, but I can’t imagine her going to jail for it. She must have been going through a breakup.
A woman in England (Willenhall) has been jailed after playing an Ed Sheeran song at top volume over and over again. Sonia Bryce played the song Shape of You repeatedly and, according to a judge, caused a “wholly unacceptable level of disturbance.” Because of repeated violations the judge gave her an 8 week jail sentence.
