You may have heard these on air, but I really wanted to share these here. This are our brave men and women seriving this GREAT country and protecting us and our freedoms! Why we all worry about getting that perfect gift, or taking time off, they are still working hard and won't be able to have their families with them.
My sincerest thanks and gratitude to those serving. Thank you for EVERYTHING that you do! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Still so crazy that Paul died. I know there has been a lot of talk about him "just being a celebrity", but he was one of the few that were good. He cared about people, wanted to help as many as he could, and was a Christian. No matter your thoughts on it, my thoughts and prayers are still with his family and friends.
Back in May, singer/songwriter Amy Bowen brought a lawsuit against Paisley, Underwood, Sony, and songwriters John Kelley Lovelace and Charles DuBois over the song Remind Me, which went to #1 back in 2011.
According to the lawsuit, Amy, who goes by Lizza Connor professionally, wrote and copyrighted a song called Remind Me back in 2008. She then participated in a songwriting workshop where she met and performed the song for Lovelace and DuBois. They critiqued the tune and told her it would work well as a duet.
Well...now it's going to court.
Bowen has plausibly shown that, taken in combination, the lyrics and associated melodies, intonations, and usage could be sufficiently original to constitute protectable material. As Bowen points out, in both recordings, (1) the phrase 'Remind me' is often followed by the partner phrase 'Baby, remind me,' which essentially echoes the hook; (2) the hooks are repeated in close proximity and with similar intonation – higher the second time than the first; (3) the hooks rise in pitch from 're-' to '-mind' and descend in pitch from 're-' to '-mind,'; and (4) the syllable 're-' crosses two tones and the syllable '-me' crosses at least three tones."
Guess we'll see what happens!
