SO I am just starting this blog but I thought I would kick things off with a story that has been going around the internet today:
Glee has no shame. Let’s be honest we all knew this already. What I am talking about is the fact that they have actually stolen a song from someone else for their own profit. In 2006 Jonathan Coulton paid to make a cover of Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot.
The cover is about as far away from the original as you can get, it’s written like a love song. Today a song was posted, supposedly for the next episode of Glee, of surprise surprise, Baby Got Back. Now you might be thinking, “Well they just cover of the song that’s not stealing.” Listen to Jonathan Coulton’s version and then Glee’s version, I’ll even give you a few minutes to do that.
Ok, you done?
Glee not only performs the song in the exact same way but they also leave in the part that Coulton changed from “Mix-a-Lot’s in trouble” to “Johnny C’s in trouble.” Honestly if you are going to steal his song at least have the indecency to take his name out of it!
That’s all for now farewell for now Internets, I shall return!
