We should discuss artists who took good music, renamed it, and got somewhere doing it and help people find the original songs and whatnot.

Yo... Vanilla Ice stole the fuck out of Queens under pressure. That extra note? It's actually the first note of the second measure with a new beat on top to give off the illusion that vanilla ice is an original artist with original ideas.

Silly thread is silly. Yall is silly. Silly silly.

Barry Manilow - Could It Be Magic - Chopin Prelude Op. 28 No.20 in C Minor

Also a lot of "Warmen" stuff sounds like Bach and Salieri, as well as some early Children of Bodom stuff.

Everything Avicii does is stolen from somewhere, the guy is creative as a goose. Not to mention hes greasy as fuck.

Yeah and most One Republic's punchy songs were ripped off from Immediate Music.

Nothing is original. End of story.

And you've just used the No True Scotsman fallacy. According to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition, a musician is "One who composes, conducts, or performs music, especially instrumental music." That definition does not exclude covers. If one mostly writes covers, mostly conducts cover, or mostly performs covers, they are still a musician. They might not necessarily be a good musician, but a musician nonetheless.

Interesting concept, but I think he means to say that in the "modern" era so called "performers" are stealing work that successful musicians had already accomplished.

but yeah... Bach would kick our asses...

Well, I at least have one area of music where I won't risk getting kicked in the rear for using in my pieces, unless for the wrong reasons.

*coughcoughplainchantcough*

There's a fine line between saying it's a cover of something else, and stealing someone else's work and outright calling it your own.

Also a lot of "Warmen" stuff sounds like Bach and Salieri, as well as some early Children of Bodom stuff.

to be fair most of that stuff is public domain, and can be used as people see fit. I'm arranging Chopin Etude in Eb Min Op.10 No.6 for Woodwind Quintet and can do so freely because it is public domain. the arrangements and recordings of these pieces are not public domain, however. I think it is quite cool they use these pieces in their songs because it means they actually listen and like the music. but, i digress.
