A Small Rant, or, How I Win Anyway
Today my friend sent me the song in this video. She said “The beat of this song reminds me of a song from a while back, with a female singer, but I just can’t place it.”
I gave it a listen and immediately replied “This reminds me of Tom Tom Club: Genius of Love!”
She wasn’t familiar with that song, so I sent it to her (you can also give it a listen here: http://youtu.be/wV4Yv9-N8Pk).
She said “No, that’s not it.”
Well, considering I pride myself on my music knowledge, I was determined to find the song she was thinking about.
I sent her another song, which she rejected, and was getting ready to offer another when she thought of it.
It was Mariah Carey: “Fantasy.”
If you don’t know why this is facepalm worthy, you can find out here: http://youtu.be/qq09UkPRdFY
And if you can’t be arsed to click on the link, I’ll tell you.
It’s because “Fantasy” SAMPLES “GENIUS OF LOVE.”
How are you gonna tell me it’s not “Genius of Love” then tell me it’s a song which is “Genius of Love” note-for-note?!?!
