The Christmas/folk song is going to be released on Monday or Tuesday!

"When I Was Young" is my favorite song on DED, and it would've been super interesting to hear what the band would be like now if they had continued in that direction.

i don't think it will top self-titled, but that's because it is an EP that was recorded in a week. from what i've heard so far, it seems amazing for what it is. a step in the right direction for sure.

Is Boxing Day shit to you because you think they completely ripped off another song? That's kind of the vibe i get from you...."Oh When I was young sounds like Everythings Magic....It Sucks" "Boxing Day sounds like All Star it sucks." etc. Just my opinion.

 

Well I don't like Boxing Day because it is very generic as well. But in short, yes. You are right. When a song is a re-write of another song,, that destroys it for me. Why shouldn't it? If I took the melody from a Blink song and changed the lyrics and structure a little bit would you give me credit for writing that song? Would you think it was a good song?

 

Why should they get away with plagiarizing their own songs? Or other people's songs? How can you think a song that is a total rewrite of another song be good?

 

GOTDF was a horrible song because the melody was exactly the same as There Is. It is VERY lazy songwriting.

After one listen, I think all the songs are good. The rap bit isn't bad; it's not good either but it's probably better than the dullish instrumental bridge (well, they're all dull on this EP) in the background, which they probably would have used if they had not gone for this rapper. A crisper production quality would do a lot of good but it's not that big of an issue.

All a matter of opinion I guess, I usually don't listen to one song and sing lyrics to another song or think that it sounds like another song, that's just me I guess.

i always though that gotdf/there is argument went a little too far. i mean, would we say that blink stole the chord progression they use in dammit and carousel and half of the other blink songs from nofx? 

 

 

There is a difference between re using a chord progression and re using a melody. You obviously know this.
