Pride Post

Today was the culmination of Pride week.

Unlike other cities, the gay events in Montreal are divided in two. Divers/Cité (kinda like Gay Pride minus any pride and full parties) during the end of July. And Pride (more of community stuff) mid-August. 

Although I have attended the parade in the past (the last time 3 years ago with one of my exes, Joseph) I’m not really active in these events. Semi naked dudes don’t get me hard and the excess/superficiality of most guys during those weeks annoys me.

However, I’m a shark and there’s plenty of fish in the water during that period… Fish I’ve enjoyed whenever I was single and  in the mood for it.

This year I missed all that.

Divers/Cité because totally forgot about it, and Pride because I worked. It’s clear I’m not into the “scene” but it’s evident that my kind of fun is more private.

That said, to mark the celebration below some gay ICONS over the decades.

rip off, rip off, rip off …

LEGENDS Radiohead believes Lana Del Rey ripped off their 1993 hit “Creep” (one of my favourite songs) on Lust For Life highlight, “Get Free,” and are suing her ass.

She confirmed the surprising development via TwAtter.

While there are definite similarities between the songs (I assumed Lana sampled “Creep” the first time I heard “Get Free”), asking for 100 percent of the publishing is a bit rich, not to mention ironic, given that Radiohead had to share the proceeds of their own smash with The Hollies after they admitted to lifting the melody of “The Air That I Breathe.”

Now…

When Lady Gaga came out with that song “Born this way,” music lovers (and Madonna) threw shade at her because it sounds a lot like Madonna’s “Express Yourself”.

When Coldplay came out with “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” many accused them to rip off the sound of the German band Chocolat and their 90s hit “Ritmo De La Noche,” that was also recorded by Argentine’s band The Sacados and Europeans Mystic and Lorca.

Yet”Ritmo de la Noche” was also inspired by Peter Allen’s 70s hit “I go to Rio”.

Same as when Bruno Mars (whom I ADORE) came out with “Treasure”. It was beyond OBVIOUS he ripped off the much superior hit of the French band Breakbot “Baby Im Yours”

When Robin Thick came out with “Blurred Lines,” he also got sued by Marvin Gaye’s family for ripping off “Got to Give It Up”.

The point is, many musicians get inspired from each other but they don’t acknowledged it.

It would be nice if they do in order to save themselves lots of trouble, educating at the same time the youth that often ignore who ABBA was while thinking Madonna’s “Hung Up” was original.

Or to make it more actual, they sing Jonas Blues “Fast Car” but they have no idea who Tracy Chapman is. Chapman, the original singer and writer of that 90’s hit.

And no words about this ABOMINATION, a copy & paste failure of the epic “Maria Maria”.

Long story short, chances are, whatever you listen to is probably a rip off of an old song.
