That's how I imagine I sound when I'm singing in the corner of the shower.

Did I ever tell of the times I spent singing "Wish You Were Here" with a buddy in the (TDCJ) boot camp showers? It was powerful stuff. :hehe:

It's an old show tune, and many have done it, but this will always be the one for me.

Like jazz but I'm not a expert. Amazing it is encouraged for a singer to 'cover' a song either accurately or some variation and yet with art that is considered conning people? No logic.

You mean covering songs is the same as producing fake art? I disagree. It is all about the acknowledgement, say you cover, say you reproduce, you are OK.

With new medicine there's a ten year period of grace before generics kick in. It's amoral that artists, whose greatest works are often a puzzle to themselves how they arose, can hold onto the rights of a pattern of paint pigments for profit over decades. That'd be the closest our stances might come. Yes, the originator of piece should be acknowledged, yet the legal framework should ensure new artists are encouraged as well as protecting temporarily the fiscal outcomes of a artist producing something outstanding. We don't have the interesting movements in art like at the start of the 20th C. and part of that is the law protecting established artists over new and up'n'coming ones, or even outsider artists who sometimes might be more interesting than trained ones.
