My 10 albums, you know that thing on social media where you post 10 albums? Part 2 of 10

I remember the sound of what reminded me of a vacuum cleaner, in a few songs. Also now, in retrospect I get why I would confuse parts of one group’s songs with other group’s material.

IT WAS BECAUSE THEY WERE INFLUENCED BY EACH OTHER

For instance, in ‘Another One Bites the Dust’, by Queen. If you listen, there’s a really hardcore synthesizer part that’s VERY dark side of the moon, that is clearly a nod to the keyboard revolution Pink Floyd had been doing at that time. Also, the song ‘Time’ by The Alan Parsons Project also feels within this vibe for me. I love that song.

Also.. I feel that this ability to connect influences between songs has turned me into a strange human version of ‘Shazam’ that can spot similarities across genres and generations. This is perfect for a DJ or mashup artist. I’ll use it for my cover songs… because let’s face it, these days,

NO ONE WANTS TO WAIT FOR YOU TO PLAY MASTER OF PUPPETS ALL THE WAY THROUGH UNLESS YOU ARE METALLICA OR A SPECIFIC TRIBUTE

I heard Billie Eillish’s song and was immediately singing the song, ‘People Are Strange‘ by The Doors that I already recognized in her music. I don’t look for this stuff, it just creeps up on me when I hear music. Thus, when I can’t get away from it, I make the mashup.

Jimmie Eillish – Mashup – Doors + Billie Eilish

Martin Garrix ‘Forever’ + Metallica’s ‘To Live Is To Die’

I don’t know how this happened but I felt this was the same song for a while and that Mr. Garrix didn’t know he’d done this. I bet if you ask him if he was ever the owner of Metallica’s And Justice For All… that he’d say ‘Yes’ and that he particularly enjoy’s ‘To Live Is To Die’. I’m not calling out plagiarism in any way here, just that the chords WORK together and I’m finding the deep rooted influences that often the artists don’t even realize. For example, if you play ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ a BUNCH on guitar… then a day or two later, try to write your own on an acoustic by playing some chords and singing some melodies randomly….during that week…

CHANCES ARE HIGH YOU WILL USE THE SAME STRUMMING PATTERNS AS SWEET HOME ALABAMA AND HAVE NO IDEA BECAUSE ITS DIFFERENT NOTES, CHORDS AND MELODIES. – AND YOU WON’T SOUND as ORIGINAL.

Think about that for a moment, while you turn on ‘Forever is To Die’ my mashup…

People want the best parts of the best songs… so I’ll give them that in my live shows. I’ll play my own songs all the way through, but the cover stuff, will be pretty much short, ‘2020 crowd digestable versions’ of songs I love.

It will be interesting to see what I do with ‘In The End’ by Linkin Park and ‘Pretty Noose’ by Soundgarden. These are already in the hopper for my next covers / live show tracks.

So without any further adieu, today’s inspiration comes from none other than the incredible stylings of :

The Dark Side Of The Moon

See you tomorrow. Till then, if you watch me on twitch.tv/StaminaRecords tonight, you may hear a Pink Floyd Guitar Solo…err you WILL.
