Thumbs down Why You Should.... - June 6th 2009, 12:50 PM

Okay, my little brother was listening to Flo Rida's song Right Round.
Really stupid song, with partial rip off of DOA's original song "You Spin Me Right Round" Anyone who listens to that song can't say they didn't rip it off of em (mind you some of their 'rap' is their original)
Another song with partial rip off is Sugar and you can compare it to the chorus in Blue by Effile 65(sp)

This is why I'm starting to hate the music industry, there's so many people copying each other or re-doing songs it's stupid and they sound 100x's worse then the orginal.

Post your thoughts.

DOA's Lyrics(Label As DOPE because of the cover):
Flo Rida's Song:
YouTube - Flo Rida Right Round

I'm not your princess,
This an't our fairy tail.
I'm gonna find someone someday
Who might actually treat me well

I'll Keep You My Dirty Little Secret

They did partially rip it off like you said.
But I love Flo Rida and that song :P
It makes me happy.

Ugh, I hate that Flo Rida song. Another "rip-off song" is Rihanna's "SOS"- sounds a bit like "Tainted Love". I love the original "You Spin Me Round", though.

It's called sampling, and the original artist is definitely seeing a chunk of dough from any profits that the song makes.

The music industry has never been based on originality. Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles...etc...all got big doing other people's songs, and some of them never STOPPED doing other people's songs.

It's catchy, I like it
and most of the song is original rap. They took the beat. That's it. Eh, if artists want to remake songs, they should go ahead...most remakes suck anyway.
...Like, GOD, this is sooo off topic but Im throwing it out there; I heard the WORST remake of War Pigs by some band called Cake...I wanted to cry! D;

I'm not hating on the music industry, there's plenty of original work coming up every day.

Help my little eggiweggs! =D Prease?

I absolutely 100% hate this new Flo Rida song. Nevermind that it screws me up because I try to sing along then it's completely wrong, but at my school the bell between classes playing music instead of a bell sound, I swear I hear that atleast four times a day. Ugh.

Every time I try to give up, a little voice called hope says "one more try"

I like the song Right Round. It is supposed to be a remix of the original song. I thought Flo Rida did a pretty decent job.
