OK, this is a bit weird: "Lana Del Rey Says Radiohead Lawsuit Is Over".

While Del Rey did acknowledge that her song "Get Free" used some musical elements from Radiohead's "Creep", AT FIRST the lawyers for Radiohead wanted 100% of her publishing rights for her song (she was willing to give up 40%).

But what that first link does NOT explain is that part of the reason why Radiohead lawsuit was dropped is that NOW "Creep" is co-owned by the Hollies because of that song's similarities with "The Air That I Breathe".

I found a different comparison video, and I can sort of see the issue. However, asking for 100% was a dick move, especially when offered nearly half. As a result, I'm glad they ended up with squat.

OK, some background: according to Wikipedia the songwriters for "The Air That I Breathe" (and NOT members of the Hollies) Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood sued Radiohead, winning that suit and thus getting a writing credit and some of the royalties from each sale for "Creep" when sung/played by Radiohead. Apparently this was done relatively amicably.

BUT the people responsible for suing Lana Del Rey were NOT Radiohead but Warner/Chappell Music (so my apologies to Radiohead). Y'know, those guys who defended for years their copyright to "Happy Birthday" when it was later discovered that they didn't have a legal leg to stand on? There were questions on whether or not they really could have sued Del Rey in the first place, and the answer to that is "probably not" based on Warner's statement denying that ANY copyright lawsuit was filed (but it was still a dick move for Warner to place any blame on Radiohead in their statement).

Good. I was about to be disappointed in Radiohead, and that would have made me sad. Warner/Chappell are known scumbags, so their getting their comeuppance is awesome.

DIE ANTWOORD ft. The Black Goat ‘ALIEN’ (Official Video)

Slightly NSFW

This is not what you'd expect from them, it's a soft, slow tune, so maybe give it a chance if you haven't liked what they have done before.

That's a pretty solid video. I mean, I haven't seen a video like that since the 90's - and that's a compliment. The ending, however, was a bit odd. I guess the alien decided conformity wasn't so bad after all?

R.I.P. pianist Henry Butler. YouTube video of a performance at link.

Personally I THINK I had never heard of Butler before (never having been to New Orleans). This is much to my regret (listening to that video again right now).

In 1982 Bruce Springsteen made a darker acoustic version of "Born in the USA".

This was 2 years before its official release in 1984.

Judith Owen's version of Donna Summer's "Hot Stuff". YouTube video at link.

Owen plans to release videos for each of the songs on her current album titled "redisCOVERed" in which she has covered music by other artists, so it might be more instructive to watch Drake's "Hotline Bling" BEFORE watching Owen's version.

A couple of examples of superb guitarwork by Tommy Emmanuel. YouTube videos at the link, the first being "Purple Haze" with Jerry Douglas on slide guitar, then "Africa" with Andy McKee on guitar and "percussion".

I'm not sure why, but Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" has been my persistent earworm since hearing this (so, yes, since the start of August).

It's not TOO bad as far as earworms go, but I'm not a particular fan of Bush nor of that song so it has been bothersome. And it has persisted despite my most desperate attempts to get rid of it ("It's a small world after all...").

Elvis Presley sings "Unchained Melody".

This live performance was recorded in July 1977, two months before Presley's death. Even if you have never liked Elvis, give this a listen.

Wow, at the beginning I was sure he was about to pass out (because of being overweight+drugs), but he still had the voice, he could still really sing.
