I’ve not written a listening to for a while. I blame having all four series of Game of Thrones to watch, and also living up to my disconnect rule and doing things like reading, playing the piano and guitar lately.
However this caught my eye on Facebook this week
I’m a bit of an Ed fan and don’t mind Sam Smith and I liked this mash up, very clever. However I made the mistake of reading the comments … Boy there’s a bit of hate and Sam Smith, to summarise, is a cheating stealing muso victimising poor Tom Petty.
Yes I can hear the similarity and he made a payment to Tom Petty, but actually, all musos steal something… There’s only four chords in any song, after all…. As this brilliant sketch from some Aussies demonstrates.
