I never said that. Check my post at 12:51. Arrangement and songwriting are two completely different things.

they weren't writing a term paper jeez

goole, Thursday, 19 August 2010 16:54 (4 years ago) Permalink

so let me ask this, if Led Zeppelin went back and time and wrote the exact same music but gave proper credits/recognition from the bungee, would you be a fan?

a complete and utter ripoff like Dazed and Confused

it is not a complete and utter ripoff fyi

a complete and utter ripoff would have also kept the Zep version under 4 minutes

I suspect that Bill is just butthurt that Sabbath's "War Pigs" is a COMPLETE AND UTTER RIPOFF of Zep's "Good Times, Bad Times"

glitter hands! glitter hands! razzle! dazzle! (Shakey Mo Collier), Thursday, 19 August 2010 16:56 (4 years ago) Permalink

like just cuz they changed some words around and added a long improvisatory section in the middle and slowed it down doesn't mean it isn't the worst most unforgiveable sin imaginable and btw Sabbath are not a real band

Just because you turn your amps up to 11 and feed Bonham some extra-fine Bolivian prior to recording what was originally a mellow number doesnt justify the plagiarism.

just because you take a boring song and make it awesome oh wait

anyway ... back to Moka's list:

does Bonham quoting Max Roach in Moby Dick count?

glitter hands! glitter hands! razzle! dazzle! (Shakey Mo Collier), Thursday, 19 August 2010 17:02 (4 years ago) Permalink

Ok this list totally left off that they lifted "Immigrant Song" from The Osmonds' "Hold Her Tight."

Ok then, it seems that you don't like them as a band simply cuz you don't like their songs, or in the case of the 'ripped off' songs, the way they perform them. upthread you seemed to be implying that the uncredited ripoff played a large part in your dislike of the music is why I asked.

Correct. I understand i am in the minority

I just hope it gets someone to listen to Spirit, eh? They're a pretty great (if kinda goofY) band.

I don't think anybody has pointed out yet how the Beatles shamelessly and egregiously ripped off the Rutles in similar fashion, raping their career.

if the Beatles had been a real band they wouldn't have had to rip off Chuck Berry and John Cage

I've been thinking lately that Lady Gaga might have stolen a couple of things from Madonna, does anyone else think so? Maybe it's just me, but I think "Poker Face" sounds a lot like a sped-up version of "Live To Tell". What a rip off!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rutles#Lawsuits

Following the release of the 1978 The Rutles album, ATV Music, the then-owner of the publishing rights to the Beatles catalog, sued Innes for copyright infringement. Though Innes hired a musicologist to defend the originality of his songs[2], he settled with ATV out of court for 50% of the royalties and shared songwriting credit on the 14 songs included on the album.
