sampled music

Last week in class, we were talking about copyright and music. I learned about this interesting Web site called Have you seen it? You can type in songs and artists, and it will show if the music has sampled other music or if another musician has sampled from that song.

In a similar vein, here are two videos about things we love to hear in music. I find it fascinating!

This one came from Augusta. She's a cellist and had her own story about her days of playing Canon in D at weddings. (She agrees that it's incredibly boring.) Since I'm not a cellist, I can honestly say that I think Canon in D is just beautiful.
