Here are a few popular songs, with samples taken from other songs. Doing searches like this, has actually expanded my musical horizons and let me to
artists I otherwise wouldn't have heard of. If you have any, please post!
I think this is more of a imitation is the sincerest form of flattery type thing with musicians.
Like the Vaselines, who's songs like Jesus Don't Want Me For A Sunbeam, Mollys Lips, Son of a Gun ect. were basically re-done electronically by
Nirvana who were longtime fans of the band and opened their songs to the masses enlightening fans who care to see where they got their inspiration.
If you search their song titles in Google you're more likely to see a Nirvana version of the song.
But the Vaselines still to this day in interviews say they don't care that the songs are known as Nirvana songs because they believe he actually took
the song and made it his own.
Not to mention the addition of new fans buying tickets at shows solely knowing that Nirvana covered them. lol
And these songs were changed much less than some of your versions, especially when rappers take samples from their parents music.
Nirvana covered MANY bands, even David Bowie. David has been quoted as saying he always wanted to reach out when Kurt was alive and covering his song
but was afraid of rejection for being from the "old" generation. He still to this day says he wishes he had asked Kurt why he chose this song. Which
brings up a good point, why this song?

Your # is great man, only had a chance to listen to the first 3 but I love it. What you use?
I have lots of half songs, but the only song I have on soundcloud right now, I made on christmas night with my brother and a 23 year old girl we just
met. The song was made and recorded in about 30 minutes with ableton live. lol. Usually my stuff is electonic and dance stuff.
Yes I don't have Komplete but I will buy it. I am in love with ableton and threw my cubase to the side. Never really got into reason, I couldn't
really get into the workflow. I have an Akai Mpk 49. Its ok the pads suck.
I do have battery and absynth. Battery is awesome, but plan on getting the whole set soon.
Sampling, mash-ups and the cut-and-paste garbage known as 'dance music' are indications of the bankruptcy of Western popular culture. The people
that create--more accurately, assemble--this stuff are just savages playing with the broken trinkets of a higher civilization whose achievements they
cannot hope to match. Like Pacific islanders decorating their bodies with colourful bits of plastic flotsam and nuts and bolts left over from decayed
Second World War matérial.
Serious Western music died with serialism and the sonic experimentation of the early twentieth century. Its death helped Westerners rediscover the
soul of music, and brought a brief efflorescence of valuable popular idioms like jazz and rock in which some great work was done. But that, I'm sorry
to say, was the final flowering. The collapse of music in the West prefigures the collapse of all Western art and culture--and eventually, the
collapse of Western civilization.
