No Stairway / Episode 7 - Samples

Listen on

Episode notes

Talent borrows, genius steals, so goes the common mis-quoted phrase. The truth of that particular idea is examined front and back this week as we dive into songs which have been famously sampled by other artists. We also debut our new quasi-regular feature of delving into our mail fun-bag, confronting the shadowy internet figure of ‘Al the Canary’ along the way. Further to this we roundly rubbish the state of contemporary songwriting, Carl reluctantly yet repeatedly calls Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter a talentless thief, and everyone agrees that New Order could save themselves a fortune by singing instead of paying for daft samples of singing.
