The Whitest Boy Alive – 1517

Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.” – John Lennon

Lots of work to do on a Saturday so here’s a quick post for all the people who hate on sampling. Long story short Edwin Birdsong was so inspired by this beautiful girl’s figure that he felt compelled to write a song about it, Daft Punk sampled it and had all the kids dancing, The Whitest Boy Alive covered it and made it chill and Kanye sampled Daft Punk and gave to it to new generation. For some it’s either Peter Keating or Howard Roark, I like to think the best form of art comes from understanding the balance, enjoy.
