I think I need to clarify about I Saw Her Standing There. It's in no way one of the worst things they did, and the countdown is electrifying, but after that, something is just lacking. I think it's unpolished sound was intentional, but I would have preferred them to lose the raggedness of the recording.

It was actually one of the songs they spent the most time recording on 11 Feb 1963 - There's A Place was done in 10 takes, Seventeen (as it was then known) in nine, all in the morning. Handclaps were added later that day.

FWIW I think it's brilliant. I can't really think of a better album opener from that time, apart from possibly PPM.

Let's just say with me, hindsight hasn't done it favors.

It's funny that most people nowadays don't even realize that Queen was ripped off, I've heard people get upset because they thought that Vanilla Ice was the one ripped off! Oh some people...


Ah, but Queen kinda ripped off Chic! "Good Times" -----> "Another One Bites the Dust", more or less.

But I'm with you - I'd be annoyed by anybody who thought Vanilla Ice was the originator, and I never even cared for "Under Pressure" (much less "Ice Ice Baby"), just because I'm annoyed by ignorance. I don't think mere bass lines should be able to be protected by copyright though (and they aren't.)

Indian music can't be listened to the same way you hear rock and roll. You cannot do 'Yea Yea' and 'Go Man Go' - Ravi Shankar

Vanilla Ice eventually gave Mercury and Bowie songwriting credits, which was weird, because Mercury had nothing to do with the bassline. Deacon and Bowie both credit the other one, Taylor and May also credit Deacon.a-hard-days-night-george-8

This is confusing. Why shouldn't baselines be protected by copyright? It's part of the song

Ah, the joys of copyright law. Didn't what's-his-name from The Eagles get sued for copyright infringement because a song he wrote was too close to another song he had written earlier?

I know John Fogarty did!
