That's why I don't listen to music on the radio anymore. -_-
Love how the videos are always 10x more interesting than the music- more artistic, cost more to produce, cleverer, and involve more talented people.

I'm pretty sure that the second song on this list is the original source of that melody. I could be wrong but it's the oldest video that I've heard of. Bashunter is this Swedish singer that made it big in Scandinavia and Iceland few years ago. The English version was an adaption that they made in order to make it in English speaking places. His most popular song was this one:



Technically I wasn't thrilled by his popularity. I was kinda getting sick of techno music at the time. This didn't help.
Those were my two cents.

Yeah, they all follow the same typical techno structures anyway. Pity they didn't all copy the tune of something notable instead of something so generic…

At least the Swedish guy is sort of funny and novel in his clips.

What's more funny is the fact that a song that originally revolved around playing a Warcraft 3 mod has become a song about a guy wanting to lay a girl.
Those were my two cents.

It's worse on file sharing services like BearShare, Limewire, and even (to a lesser extent) Project Playlist.

I've seen Weird Al credited with some things he never did and Enya being credited with 99% of the Lord of the Rings sound track when she only did one (Lothlorien) and the “May It Be”, which was originally Hayley Westenra.


It's because of shit like that you can't trust Wikipedia for any real information. These are the same morons adding information to it

Very true. I've had some miss credited file share music in the past: “Wild Thing” by the Trogs miss-credited to the Kinks, and the German Version of “Barbie Girl” by Aqua miss-credited to Rammstien are two really annoying ones i recall.

But then again that IS fielsharing… Those are the same dicks that miss-label all their porn too. I'm glad I don't do filesharing anymore. Too much trouble.

It sounded good when I first heard it. Now it sounded irritating because the tune are all similar.

That's probably the one thing I appreciate about Daft Punk. From what I've heard of them, they seem to avoid using that stock bass and drum beat that makes so much techno suck.

But even so, it's pretty hard to keep coming up with new tracks using what amounts to generic soundbites being played back at high speed.

Traditionally techno and dance has been a field dominated by low skill neophytes whose only distinctions are a social affinity for their scene and the minor technical expertise to mange their equipment.

What you can do with copy and paste music is really just as varied and complicated and interesting as what you can do with any other kind, but because the skill levels required to create music in that field are so low and audience expectations are so crude, exceptional performers are rare.

I still like Papa Roach's Last Resort…What can I say? I was a rage-driven teenager back in the day (not really)…

I really need to learn to use the emotes when I'm being sarcastic. You pretty much summed up what I was thinking though.

A decent example of copy/paste music that doesn't sound too bad might be this:

I think lefarce posted it in TD a long time ago. That's where I found it.
