“I believe in God, our father, I believe in Christ the son, I believe in the Holy Spirit. Our God is three in one”.
Sorry, let’s get back to the subject at hand. We had to watch a short documentary about the Amen break repeatedly and now we have to write a comment about it. Not about the whole documentary (it would be insanely sad if that was the task), but on the matter of what you think of sampling and how tracks and their original makers have been abused. So why that strange intro? I “stole” it, no I didn’t but I used it. It’s a part of the lyrics in Hillsong’s United “This I Believe (The Creed)”. My intro touches upon the topic. Because I cited it, it doesn’t mean I stole it. Yet I didn’t ask permission for it nor did I pay to use it. Is it stealing? No, of course not, you use it as you please and that’s where you hit this comment blog right on the spot. Is it allowed to use a sample of a track and remix it, re-use it or put it directly into a new song as you please? No silly, you can’t do that shit! Oh wait, sorry, I passed the 200 word mark again, bye!
