but then again it was a Bach ripoff anyway.
Yes, young 'uns, the first time I heard this song was way back in the sixties, on one of its first radio plays. We wuz a carful of hippies, stoned to the gills, laughing and jabbering as drove through the night. Suddenly, those organ notes came over the speakers. The whole car went silent. "We tripped the light fandango..." The car left the ground. We were sailing through a starry empyrean. Dancing over the treetops. Two and a half minutes later, it was over.
i think there's a basic misunderstanding here about what a song is - it's lyrics and a melody ... that is the part that is in fact copyrighted ... anything and everything else can be changed - that's arranging
If Gary Brooker could tell me what the hell the lyrics are supposed to mean, I'd be more impressed than I would by the Bach organ rip-off that opens the tune.
