I love it how little monsters dig themselves a deeper hole every time they try to justify Lady Gaga’s lack of originality.
The past few months I received a few messages from Gaga’s brainless defenders trying to “prove” that same chords in different songs is a common thing (no kidding, Sherlock!). So they tell me to watch the video “Axis of Awesome - Four Chords” on YouTube.
monsters morons fail to understand that that video only proves how unoriginal most of Lady Gaga’s songs are.
There is a limited number of chords, the order those chords can be played in different songs (their combination) will also be limited. But that does not mean that two songs (or three songs, or 40 songs) that have the same chord progression will sound the same. The Four Chords video by the Axis of Awesome is proof of that:
They play a number of different songs that are based on the same chords. Each video you find on YouTube will have a few different songs (they keep adding and changing their “setlist”).
And guess what?
They do not sound alike. So what is the point those stupid little morons were trying to make again?
The Axis of Awesome play a bunch of pop songs that share the same basic chord structure. But because the melodies in which those songs are sung are completely different, THEY DO NOT SOUND THE SAME:
Both songs are featured in the Axis Of Awesome video, played in the same four chords. However, I doubt anyone with half a brain would actually attest that they sound the same. They don’t. The melody their lyrics are sung is different. That makes a huge difference.
You see, that’s why Born This Way sounds like Madonna’s Express Yourself.
Lady Reductive not only copied the chord progression from Express Yourself, but she also copied its singing melody. You have got to be the saddest person to deny that the similarities between those two songs are only in the chord progression:
By the way, you can also sing the rap in Vogue on top of the rap in Born
This Way Reductive. They also match. What’s their excuse for that? And what are the excuses for copying the theme and lyrics from Carl Bean’s I Was Born This Way?
Anyway [getting back at the “chords” issue], the same goes with Kylie Minogue’s Hand On Your Heart and Bad Romance:
Lady Reductive may not have copied the singing melody from that song, but she surely stole the intro in Kylie’s song to sing her lyrics exactly in the same melody. It’s not a matter of same chords in two different songs. It’s the melody of one song being copied in another song.
The funniest thing about the messages I get from those retarded little
monsters morons when they want to talk about chord progressions is that they don’t even know what a chord progression is!
They don’t understand that two songs can have the same chord progression, played in different chords and different keys: that’s the case with Express Yourself / BTW.
That’s also the case in all the songs in the Axis of Awesome video.
Those guys took a bunch of songs that share the same basic chord progression. In their original versions, they do not all have the same chords. However, for their medley, they transposed many of those songs from their original keys, so that they would all be in the same four chords.
Little monsters, good luck in convincing yourselves that they all sound the same just because their chord progression is the same.
Do not forget that in their original versions, they also appear in different chords - and not the same four chords as in the AoA video.
