I can't believe how shamelessly this jackass Harry Styles ripped off Badfinger.
I mean wtf? Get rich off somebody else's riff? They ought to sue him to the moon, what a piece of crap.

I mean, it's a different song. But yeah, that is absolutely the riff from "Baby Blue", note for note.
Seems too obvious. Maybe it's an homage? Maybe he paid Badfinger for the rights to use the riff?

Getting rich off other peoples' riffs?

You mean, like... Led Zeppelin? They were the kings of that shit!

If Randy California had sued Led Zep when he was alive he surely would have won the Stairway to Heaven lawsuit.

Harry has nothing on Led Zep!

Great Larree, you're ready to stick it to Zep who did create some of the most original songs in history like Rain Song for instance, but you're not ready at all to take up for Badfinger, one of the hardest luck bands in history.

If I stuck up for Badfinger and let Led Zep slide that would be inconsistent and hypocritical. So, yeah. I am sticking up for Randy California and the band, Spirit. One of the greatest and most underrated bands ever. The Twelve Dreams of Doctor Sardonicus is right up there with In the Court of the Crimson King on my most influential albums of all time list.

You cannot copyright a riff. You cannot copyright a chord progression. You cannot copyright a song title.

If you can show that a song's riff is really it's main melody, you MIGHT have a case. I suspect the lyric would actually have to be ughs and ooos, though. In the case of instrumentals, even, you have a melody, somewhere.

George Harrison lost his case because he copied a melody (accidentally).

The Badfinger riff is the best part of that dog of a song.
Why is someone trying so hard to make this kid a star...

Zep did some blatant theft and got away with most of it.
Never understood the denial of it though... some of that chit was beyond obvious.
Hubert Sumlin never cried over his riff being lifted.

I saw Zep a few times. I don't "hate" Zep. Hell, I do a few Zep songs in my live sets. But they are not my favorite band. Fucking christ!

I am more of a jazz guy. Zep couldn't suck spit out of Coltrane's sax.

Styles' song is really nuthin like the Badfinger song overall. He dead-on copied the lick, alright, but it's just a passing thing in this song.

He'd win his copyright violation case. Nobody's gonna test it, though.

Countdown to Ecstasy - Steely Dan
Innervisions - Stevie Wonder
In a Glass House - Gentle Giant

Copyright law is based mostly on old memes, like as in sheet music. Then, the melody was the thing. That was a song. Accompaniment, chords, backup, piano riffs, none of that mattered.

And frankly speaking what if you COULD copyright for instance a chord progression (some of those are so unique)? Then no one else ever could write a C-Am-F-G song. Would that be better? And how do you define a riff? How many notes does it take? What if you COULD copyright a riff? What about the surrounding content? What about LaGrange? Would you want that few chords forbidden to everyone but the beards?

I'm thinkin...copyright law SHOULD be re-written. But NOT in that restrictive a way. Out there, there are dragons.

Also, Page is God. It doesn't matter what He stole. It's what He did with it.

There are lots of ole blues guys who originated licks. There's nothing wrong with taking those and improving them and making them accessible to more modern ears.

Larree, I'm familiar with most you mentioned and out of that lot, Houses of the Holy and DSOTM and Time Fades Away and Quadrophenia are the only ones I'd consider classic and I'm a pretty huge Stevie Wonder and Steely Dan fan. So you don't like HOTH, you love the Dead. We're not in the same ballyard, so what?

Tyranny and Mutation kicks the living crap out of HOTH.

And I didn't say I don't like HOTH. I do! I saw Zep that year. Killer concert. But the Quadrophenia concert was better. And so was McLaughlin Santana. And I walked up to the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium the day of Steely Dan and got second-row orchestra pit seats for $6.50. What an amazing show. :D

But the best show I saw that year was Genesis (with Peter Gabriel) performing Selling England by the Pound.

Hey.

You know, they say:

"amateur artists 'borrow'.... mature artists 'steal'..."

I mean come on.
Look at it.
There are eleven notes. That's it.
Well guitarists can bend 'em, which gives you a couple more, almost...

not really.

just halfway spots between one and another,

but that's it, eleven notes....

so after like, the first few hundred songs,
those eleven notes had been used,

and after that, it's just, 'okay, use 'em!'

In the 1950s, you had,
damn near every hit record, based on,
either the so called "1, 4, 5 blues progression"
or the "Heart And Soul progression" as I call it,
you know, C, to Am, to F, to G,

the rockers did the 1,4,5.
the ballads did the heart and soul thing.

So at a certain point, everything sounds like everything,

it's all, how much YOU that you put into it. That's what I think anyway.

I-IV-V; I-vi-IV-V; or ii-V-I

Everything is basically a variation of one of those three progressions.

Gee Larr,

I'm sorry to hear you're intensive care.

You'll be on your feet in no time.

I'm not a roman, man.
Use numbers I'm familiar with if you wouldn't mind, thanks!


Add Comment

4/22/2017 10:50:33 AM


all kidding aside,

I was pointing out,
the two main chord progressions of the music of the Fifties,
the 1950s...

it got more intricate when the 60s came along,

my point ultimately, was, everybody is influenced by everybody,
and there are in fact, only eleven notes,
even Larree can't argue his way out of that one,

and, the thing that makes you YOU,
well, first you have to be in the habit of being the you that you
wanna be, like, a lot, or you'll suck at it, and no one will care,

and then, BE IT, YOU, Big Loud And Proud.

And, speaking for myself, I do 'me', for me.

Maybe the world'll never dig it, maybe not,

I really don't give a damn. I'm me. In all my multitudes of modes.

So, really,
who cares, if this cheeseball ripped off Badfinger.

Not even one of their better songs at that.

The point is, he's a cheeseball,
that's the real point.

Don't be a cheeseball.

Or, be a cheeseball,

got this asshole on television, what do I know.

my point was, there is nothing new under the sun,

only new enthusiasm,
and fresh personality,

the more 'you' you are, the better artist you end up being,
that's my philosophy.

but the notes, the chords,
they repeat throughout the ages... it's all what you do with it.

Larree, man, where the hell did all your records go?

Somebody bummed you out again, and you walked, that it?

Was it meee?

I'm sowy.

Do an acoustic album, or something.
Unless you're not inspired, if so I understand...

I'll only make a record if I'm inspired, and I'm not always inspired,
which is why I put out less records than I used to.

There was that one song of yours I really liked,
I wanted to cover it too, you said "no, Dude",

and, well, The Dude Abides.

Lemme know if you ever change your mind on that, I know you won't.
Let me know if you ever do though, and also, what the heck it was called.

No, ALJ. I did not pull my music down because of you. The world does not revolve around you, man. But if you really want to know, FT and I had a little fight on FB and he told me he would nuke me, so I nuked myself. But I am glad I did because now I am redoing all my stations and making them better.

And regarding the use of Roman numerals to designate chord progressions. I prefer using the Roman numerals because that is how I learned when I studied music theory. So, get used to it! :D

I just listen to one of my tunes then threw on 10 years gone followed by Over the hills and far away... Ugggh... yeah... still the benchmark to me. Quite a catalog most of it still stands today!
