Paging George Harrsion, in the "My Sweet Lord" aisle...

How depressing is it to be poking through the iTunes store and listen to Camper van Beethoven's Take the Skinheads Bowling, and then come to the sudden realization that you unconsciously ripped off its chord progression for what you consider the best song you wrote by yourself (right-click, save as)?

Late to the party, as ever...

Remind me, which song was it that used the I-vi-IV-V7 progression? Oh yeah, just about half of everything written in the mid-fifties.

I hear chord progressions all the time -- especially in jazz pieces -- which make me think "I really liked that; I'll have to remember it for my own use." Does that make me a bad person?

And blog about the film festival!
