listening to an oldies station....

...has taught me that an awful lot of "new" pop songs are ripoffs or possibly remakes of 60s and 70s rock. I started listening to this 60s-70s-80s station because it's the only one that doesn't play 30 minutes of ads per hour, and it's not bad music anyway. Over the last two weeks, however, I've heard so many songs that are obviously the basis for more recent songs, and I wonder how that happens. For example, Will Smith's Wild Wild West is identical, save the lyrics and the deep voiced guy singing "wild wild west" in the background, to a song that comes on about once a day. Weird.
