Bring On the Edge of the Night Continued

This is a follow up to an older post. I think the relationship between these songs is clear enough, but this was awfully fun to put together.

I posted this as a video with a stupid picture of myself because Souncloud didn't like my use of copyrighted, Rhino-owned material.  I figure my fair use argument is pretty good, though perhaps not worth the trouble. I dare those mothergrabbers to track me down. Do your worst.

I adjusted the beginning slightly. VERY slightly. Just tried to line up the bass drums. Stevie is in the left channel, Police in the right. As you can hear, it pulls apart a little bit, but not by much--the Stevie is faster. I did NOT adjust the tempo AT ALL. It starts with "Bring On the Night," "Edge Of Seventeen" fades in.

It's almost exactly the same, shifted by an eighth. Just like I said. Are these two songs more similar than "Blurred Lines" and "Got To Give It Up"? Yes. Is "Got To Give It Up" a lot like the Talking Heads' "Slippery People"? Sure is.

Got To Give It Up/Slippery People

LET'S SUE EVERYBODY! I mean seriously. If they're gonna sue Robin Thicke they might as well sue David Byrne. And Sting is a dick. He really ought to sue Stevie Nicks.

Anyway. I'm done for now.
