This song “Photograph” has been playing over and over again on cable news recently for controversy, but it is so catchy that it is now playing over and over in my head as my new fave jingle. 😀
The Independent wrote that the writer “Ed Sheeran is being sued for $20m (£13.8m) for allegedly ripping off a song by 2010 X Factor winner Matt Cardle.
The chart-topping singer-songwriter is accused of “verbatim, note-for-note copying” for his number one ballad “Photograph”, which Cardle’s songwriters Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard say steals from their track “Amazing”.”
Apparently, the original song didn’t make it past 50,000 sales but this un-original version made the UK billboards for consecutive weeks. Well, time and chance happens to us all, doesn’t it? It’s just like how Friendster saw a tragic demise, whereas Facebook made billions for its maker – I mean, aren’t they almost the same thing?? 😀
Here’s the song for you to enjoy:
The MTV so touched me because it reminds me so much of my own dear babes. The song’s strains echoes my heart one day when they are all grown, become their own man and strike out on their own – even then, I probably won’t be able to let them go. Hopefully they can keep me “in the pocket of their ripped jeans” and whisper to me to wait for them to come home. You won’t ever be alone..
