This Sunday's Social Matter essay is on Viktor Orban and why is he the lone leader of any European nation taking a stand against the immigration invasion. Forget just making a stand, why is he the only one saying anything negative about it and assailing multiculturalism? What allows him that freedom?
Have you heard that "chick who gets around and is awesome" song that was released last year but has had a steady push into this summer? Hmm, that's a dozen or so songs. Let me be more specific, the rock one. Still not specific enough... the one ripping off the Black Keys' "Howlin For You". Still a bit confused that a song in 2015 would rip off a 2011 song? Here goes.
Rob Schneider's daughter released a song called "Ex's and Oh's". Nepotism: the secret to Hollywood's decline. How else would Jonah Hill get roles?
Sounds a bit funky and rocky and dirty. Oh yeah! That song is so kewl. She is being, like, skanky, but she owns it, and like, this is so goddamn subversive and playful as she toys with language like men. Oh man, how awesome! #Eyeroll. But... good God... why does it feel like I've heard this song for years? It sounds an awful lot like the Black Keys' song from three years earlier.
Keep in mind that Marvin Gaye's greedy family went after Robin Thicke, Pharrell and TI for money from the success of "Blurred Lines" that sounded similar to "Got to Give It Up (Part 1)". While I think those two songs sounded similar, the lawsuit seemed a bit greedy. Most music is derivative anyway, and there have been far worse offenders (my favorite). When the lawsuit commences for this new instance, can I get a finder's fee for it?
