Hmm book contents shows teen spirit against more than a feeling but I always hear wild thing in the back of my head
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:09pm cosmic matrix:

sounds more like that lou reed song..and the colored girls go..or is that the velvets?
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:09pm Marcel M:

Listening to like, an actual guest interview situation on this show is really really strange.
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:09pm Chris M.:

kurt cobain once played the opening chords to more than a feeling live in reference to the similarity
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:12pm InBrkly:

more recently Tom Petty and Sam Smith
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:13pm InBrkly:

Wire / Elastica had an amicable agreement I believe....
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:13pm Marcel M:

Its not possible to write songs that don't sound like other songs, so now, you just have to insert a bunch of weird effects and ambient shit in-between parts and BOOM! Modern originals, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:14pm Nick the Bard:

There's that one with Red Hot Chili Peppers and, it was Nickelback wasn't it?

i love this kinda stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:17pm melville:

Killing Jokes "Eighties" and Nirvana's "Come as You are" have the exact same riff.
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:18pm InBrkly:

that example is in the book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:18pm Cliff:

And both are similar to The Damned's "Life Goes On"
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:19pm wizard frog:

trying to 'own' a combination of notes can seem a bit arbitrary
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:20pm ScottC:

I remember something about Randy California. He was in a pick-up band with Hendrix and there were 2 Randys in the band so Hendrix called him Randy California...
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:21pm noel:

The Spirit song sounds a bit like "Summer Rain" by Johnny Rivers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:22pm Cliff:

Yeah, a couple of L7s....but presumably not members of the band L7
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:22pm Nick the Bard:

interesting questions from callers, but, gah, you guys call in with song suggestions, damn
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:23pm Listener Julian:

Why is Andy not being as misanthropic as usual? Is something wrong?
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:23pm Listener Julian:

What is wrong with this show?
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:23pm Listener Julian:

When will the show start?
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:23pm Marcel M:

Wow... thats a stretch to me man thats ridiculous.
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:24pm joe mulligan:

sounds more like Istanbul not Constantinople!
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:24pm cosmic matrix:

sounds more like that stevie wonder song....part time lover !!!!
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:24pm Chris M.:

it's not even the right rhythm or anything
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:24pm noel:

I'm hearing "Barabajagal" by Donovan from that Brazilian song
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:24pm Jeremy:

Rod Stewart's "Do ya think I'm sexy" was pilfered from Jorge Ben's "Taj Mahal"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:24pm Cliff:

I think what the world needs is a bossanova Deep Purple cover band
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:24pm Marcel M:

Yeah that one was ridiculous. Every song sound like that at the end of the day.
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:25pm Tommy Haynes:

B52s Rock Lobster and the theme for the Movie BEAT GIRL
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

How about "The ABC Song" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"? Those two songs sound suspiciously alike to me.
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:25pm Mister Eddie:

Sergei Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor
Eric Carmen's All by Myself
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:26pm Marcel M:

As long as they get credit and get paid generally people don't care.

Why WOULDN'T the guys in Deep Purple be listening to Astrud Gilberto?
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:26pm cosmic matrix:

the first trap music
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/30/16 6:27pm Carmichael:

How about the George Harrison/Chiffons "He's So Fine" lawsuit?
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:27pm oks:

rod stewart "da ya think i'm sexy?" and jorge ben jor "taj mahal"
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:27pm foofs:

The 'Under Mi Sleng Teng' riddim is Joy Division's 'Isolation'.
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:28pm geezerette:

Everyone raids everyone don't they? Isn't that just part of the creative process? Classical composers did it too,incorporating folk songs or bird songs,etc.

Dylan is famous for stealing!
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:28pm bob from bushwood:

I have wondered if McCartney wasn't noodling around with the jazz standard Yesterdays when he wrote Yesterday. Actually I might have stolen this idea
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:33pm Tommy Haynes:

Except Yesterday and Yesterday's have totally different chord progressions
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:35pm JakeGould:

Did they do Vanilla Ice and Queen yet?
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:35pm geezerette:

Those obvious quotes from other artists were considered name checks / tributes, hiding in plain sight. Tracking down a composition's DNA was part of the fun and how the greater history revealed itself to you;how you learned your history and chose your ancestors.
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:35pm Marcel M:

Its definitely acceptable to use Sabbath riffs. Basically all stoner metal/doom bands do it. Some more obvious than others. Also blues riffs.. c'mon. They are all the same! It ain't stealin'! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/30/16 6:37pm Carmichael:

Oh yeah the Cars. My Best Friend's Girl vs. the Beatles I Will
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:39pm Listener Julian:

is this gonna be like that time they had people call in and confess to committing real bad crimes
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:39pm geezerette:

Making connections is how we think and imagine.
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:39pm Marcel M:

That Stooges riff is so easy to stumble upon randomly and just think you had something. But at what point are you like, "oh, ok.. I can't use that."
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:39pm JakeGould:

@MarcelM: Everyone steals. It’s just how lazy the copying effort is. If someone wants to steal a riff and grow it, most people don’t care.
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:39pm Listener Julian:

where is the punchline
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:39pm Nick the Bard:

YOU PEOPLE CALL IN, JESUS. (we're supposed to be getting like REALLY known songs in and all people are calling in with so far are like, kind of obscure shit)
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:40pm grecian:

Planet Claire and Peter Gunn
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:41pm JakeGould:

@NicktheBard: Did they mention Queen and Vanilla Ice yet?
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:41pm geezerette:

@Jake: Precisely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/30/16 6:41pm Carmichael:

@Nick: tell Ken or Andy to read the comments at least once during the show. A lot of good comparisons here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:41pm Polyus:

Deep Purple and It's A Beautiful Day swiped riffs from each other and both were all "oh, go on then".
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:42pm KM:

Wasn't one case of this Torn by Natalie Imbruglia, and some song by some Norwegian singer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:42pm melinda:

Interesting that George Harrison kept fighting his case.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:43pm Nick the Bard:

@Jake - I don't know, I'm call screening

@carmichael - you tell Ken (and you really think Andy is near the computer at all?)
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:43pm JakeGould:

@NicktheBard: Hey, cool. I am on call holding!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

"My Country 'Tis of Thee" and "God Save The Queen" ... a total rip-off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:44pm Nick the Bard:

There, you see what happens when you have two phone lines your house to deal with your dial-up issues :P

@geezerette: De nada. Also, I got my Queen/Vanilla Ice thing in there. So hey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:49pm melinda:

Man, suing the Rutles is lame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/30/16 6:50pm dale:

if you listen to the opening of joe jackson's 'breaking us in two' it is IDENTICAL to the opening of badfinger's day after day
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/30/16 6:50pm Gaylord Fields:

It was the Beatles' publisher who sued, not the Beatles themselves — as the Beatles very famously don't own the publishing rights to their songs.
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:53pm Eric M S:

Can Tim talk about the successful suit against Men At Work for their song Down Under brought by the owners of the Kookaburra song's copyright. It seems unfair
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:53pm Raika:

'25 or 6 to 4' and a Led Zeppelin song I can't remember off hand, which itself ripped off some older song. Anyone know those?
Avatar    Wed. 3/30/16 6:53pm geezerette:

@Marcel @6:35 Yep!
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:53pm Marcel M:

hahahahhaha omg law firm. Good zinger.

@eric - so call in and ask then?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/30/16 6:54pm Polyus:

Manu Dibango sued both Michael Jackson and Rihanna for using 'Soul Makossa'.
  Wed. 3/30/16 6:55pm Tommy Haynes:

What about Neil Young's Mr Soul and I Can't get No Satisfaction
Avatar Wed. 3/30/16 6:55pm Chris M.:

these things where it's just an octave arpeggiating are not ripoffs it's just music.

@JakeGould: i'm going to become a judge who only decides if a song is a ripoff or not.

@amy vogel, you should call in and demand all your missing shououts ! .. I foresee an entire Amy Vogel shoutout show in the near future.

@Torbjørn I don't mind them piling up. I assume they will spill over into 2017...

What a boring episode. That was like a game show with nothing at stake. Bring back the Andy who misbehaves around the guests, please.
