    Sinopsis

    Sinopsis de: "Sounds Like Teen Spirit"

    Sounds Like Teen Spirit provides hundreds of pairings of songs that appear to have "borrowed" their melodies from earlier songs.  Readers wil discover the music that influnced the songs of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and many more.  Sounds Like Teen Spirit covers recent plagirism cases involveing Robin Thicke, Sam Smith and Coldplay as well as famous cases such as when George Harrison was sued over his song "My Sweet Lord" by the publishers of the Chiffons' "He's So Fine" Readers will never hear the familiar songs in quite the same way after reading Sounds Like Teen Spirit.  For example, the Doors' "Hello I Love You" has the same melody and the Kinks' "All Day and All Night," and the riff that powered Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a variation on the guitar riff from Boston's "More than a Feeling." Sounds Like Teen Spirit explains that creative artists are influenced by a wide and often surprising range of sources.  For instance, John Lennon's song "Imagine" may have have been influenced by a novelty song that his father recorded to cash in on his son's fame, and Bob Marley's "Buffalo Soldier" contains the melody from "The Banana Splits Theme!"
