And I am so fucking mad right now
The arrangement used for the California Raisins’ version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
is a NOTE-FOR-FUCKING-NOTE RIPOFF of the one contained on the Temptations’ Christmas Card album.
There was no credit given to ANYONE at Motown for the “borrowing” (THEFT) of arrangement OR vocal and harmony choices made by the fucking Tempts themselves.
And now I am not only furious
But also pretty sad
On account of yet another reminder that everyone wants to be Eddie Kendricks, but nobody knows his name.
I ran into that too, and it is irritating that there seems to be no credit to the tempts, even tho it’s inspired by them. a “inspired by the temptations” would have sufficed.
And sorry for abandoning this blog, I got distracted by other fandoms, but I still do love soul music, very much.
No matter what Sign you are, 1969
It’s happening to me on both of my computers, and has been since yesterday afternoon. Whether I use the sidebar tracked tags through xkit, or tumblr’s own stupid search bar drop down method.
They changed the search method, again.
