Musical Ripoffs . . . Daniel vs. Holiday in Spain

This is one of those that is a long way from ripoff status . . . heavy influence at best, and I'm just taking a guess. But I like the guess. And as Heavy Musical Influences isn't nearly as scintillating as calling it a ripoff, I'm calling it a ripoff. Elton John's "Daniel," to me seems like it may have served as a musical inspiration for the Counting Crows' "Holiday in Spain." For the sake of argument, I'll say that Elton is singing from the one left behind, and Adam is the one doing the leaving. Check it out and tell me what you think. See a link there? For what it's worth, I love both songs, so I hold the Crows to the musical ripoff flames with the highest respect.

Oh, and no real changes today, so, um . . . I'm gay.

  1. Update for you . . . I opened the page in two windows and played the songs simultaneously. Trippy stuff. I highly recommend it.

  2. No pun intended. Just for the record, I'm not advising anyone actually get high to do this. Just play the songs at the same time, and you might FEEL like you're on something.


  3. OK, so I'll just tuck my heroin right back under my socks. Um.... you too Michael.


It's okay. Let it out.
