Don’t Download This Song

Published by stelabouras in Videos

Σε αυτό το τραγούδι του, ο Weird Al Yankovic (θυμάστε το White ‘n’ Nerdy?) ασχολείται με το παράνομο download των τραγουδιών απο το Internet και την RIAA.

Το βίντεο έχει γίνει με κινούμενα σχέδια ζωγραφισμένα στο χέρι και το τραγούδι μπορεί να χαρακτηριστεί μια ωραία μπαλάντα..Ενδιαφέρον φυσικά προκαλούν οι στίχοι!


Once in a while

Maybe you will feel the urge.

To break into national copyright law

By downloading mp3s

From file sharing sites

Like morphous or grogster or limewire or kazza.

But deep in your Heart.

You know the guilt would drive you mad

And the shame would leave a permanent scar

Cause you start out stealing songs

Then you’re robbing liquor stores

And selling Crack

And running over school kids with your car


So Don’t Download This Song

The record store is where you belong

Go and buy the CD like you know that you should

Oh Don’t Download This Song

Oh you don’t want to mess

With the R I Double A

They’ll sue you if you burn that Cdr.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a grandma

Or a seven year old girl

They’ll treat you like the evil Hard-bitten criminal scum you


So Don’t Download This Song (don’t go)

Pirating music all day long

Go and buy the CD like you know that you should

Oh Don’t Download This Song

Don’t take away money

From artists just like me

How else can I afford another solid gold Hum V

And diamond studded swimming pools

These things don’t grow on trees

So all I ask is everybody Pleaseeeeee


Don’t Download This Song (Don’t do it No No)

Even Lars Urlich Know it’s wrong (You could just ask him)

Go and buy the CD like you know that you should (You Really

Oh Don’t Download This Song

Don’t Download This Song (Oh please don’t you do it or you)

Might Wind up in Jail like Tommy Chong (Remember Tommy)

Go and buy the CD (Right Now) like you know that you should (Go
out and Buy it)

Oh Don’t Download This Song.

Don’t Download This Song (No no no no no no)

Or you’ll burn in hell before to long (And you deserve it)

Go and buy the CD (Just buy it) like you know that you should
(You should get it)

Πόσο μαλθακοί συνθέτες υπάρχουν…
Αφού να φανταστείτε εγώ τώρα πείστικα και δεν
θα ξανακατεβάσω mp3 από το δίκυτο. :P

Όχι σοβαρά τώρα ελπίζει να πείσει κανέναν?

Βασικά ο Weird Al απο ότι έχω καταλάβει περισσότερο ειρωνεύεται την RIAA και τον τρόπο δράσης της παρά προσπαθεί να πείσει κάποιον να σταματήσει το illegal mp3 downloading..
