Cover Songs, Knock-Offs, Remixes– Oh My!
A little something fun for Friday: Everything is a Remix, Pt. 1.
I’m sure you’ve heard the old quote a hundred times: “Good artists imitate; great artists steal!”
Well here’s an interesting mini-documentary about how musicians (like Led Zeppelin) “borrow” from others– as if all music were folk music (maybe it is), meant to be passed down and rearranged.
Is this a process of theft or cultural dialogue? What do you think?
