I See You Watching Me Watching You

M-M-M-My Sharona...

Is is just me or is there a plethora of new bands recycling older material?

Even Madonna's doing it. She's using ABBA's Gimme, Gimme,Gimme A Man After Midnight (I could have the lyrics wrong; I admire ABBA but I'm not a hard core fan).

There's the Rogue Traders' new one which has the riff from My Sharona.

It's not only pop songs that are being plagiarised. There's another one that I can't quite bring to mind at the moment that used something from a ballet score (I think it was Romeo & Juliet). If anyone can think of it, please feel free to post a comment. It is a female vocalist and I think she is Australian.

Is it truly a new song if your main theme is a sample from another's work? Is that cheating?

..And I'm waiting for you again, yes I'm waiting for you...

Ooops, sorry, didn't see you there

Have "stumbled" upon something new and wanted to share.

Looks interesting. May be a good way to expand the blogger community...

Have fun people.
