All round good guy writes a song to comfort his former friend’s son about his dad leaving; former friend waits for the song to become regarded as a classic and then claims it’s actually about him. Lennon/McCartney all summed up.

Getting this spicy statement in within ten minutes of publication has set me up well for my Tuesday.

Agreed. “Child sex offender” would be much more fitting.

“he now lives in Hesperia, California, about 80 miles inland from downtown Los Angeles”

Musician from The Inland Empire area of Southern California? With delusions of grandeur?

Why? Because I think The Greatest Song Of All Time should be an original written and composed by the artist(s) and not some cover or track written by a team of songwriters?

“Some days, I think “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” was the greatest single of the ’60s. Some days, I think it’s the best song that ever hit #1.”

That explains a lot.

Alright yeah, 6ix9ine is garbage, but maybe we don’t need “problematic” in the lede if someone just tried to kill him?

Ugh, Lorde Knows. “Don’t steal from ME” would have gone over better. Now you’ve put yourself in the same camp as Serena Williams hijacking women empowerment for your own personal gripe.

For any song to be considered as The Greatest Song Of All Time, the artist(s) must write the lyrics and compose the music.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR-IN-CHIEF’S CHOICE

  Hello Gluegun
Score:12 | Nov 14th

got curious about Sha Na Na’s history and found this fun tidbit on Wiki:
“Vinnie Taylor (1949–1974) (born Chris Donald), who replaced Henry Gross as the lead guitarist in 1970, died of a drug overdose in 1974. Escaped child killer Elmer Edward Solly assumed Taylor’s identity and performed as him, though not with Sha Na Na, which eventually led to his discovery and capture.[10] “
