I like some trance music, and I also like Ferry Corsten. And while I’m on the subject, I like Girl Talk too.
But I wonder if the reason I like stuff like Girl Talk and other tracks that build on top of previous tracks is because they take loops from songs I already like.
For example, Duran Duran’s Serious
Compared to Ferry Corsten’s Fire
And an example from Girl Talk
I don’t want to discount the artistic validity of this stuff, but in a way it seems like Weird Al on a different level: Smash hit comes out, rewrite the smash hit, the rewrite becomes a hit.
Almost doesn’t seem right.
