Understanding Carry On Wayward Son

From “12tone”. ( YouTube / Nebula ) Carry On Wayward Son is one of those songs that’s both totally unique and perfectly emblematic of a larger musical movement.

Did Olivia Rodrigo steal from Paramore? (analysis)

From “Adam Neely”. ( YouTube / Nebula ). Also Adam Neely 2. Olivio Rodrigo’s 2021 song good 4 u sounds suspiciously similar to Paramore’s 2007 song Misery Business, but was it stolen? Copyright establishes the legal authority for rent-seeking corporatism and actively impedes cultural expression, but yeah, she kinda copied her homework. ⦿ SUPPORT ME…

Understanding Tiny Dancer

From “12tone”. ( YouTube / Nebula ) Tiny Dancer is one of Elton John’s most iconic songs, but it wasn’t always. When it first came out, it barely made an appearance on the charts, and when he played it in concert, he described it "going down like a lead zeppelin". Like most of the songs…
