So Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber are being sued because of allegedly stealing from an 80s song.





The latter song recently won a Grammy.

What do you think? Are they guilty of copyright infringement?
Blow: "Nowadays even Liam can release an album of his screechy vocals and it'll probably go #1..."
Ramzus: I can admit that I'm horny just about 24/7
homomorphism: I used to not think your name was deshay and that Erick was just being racist
Hunter: sometimes I think I was literally born to be a pornstar

I'm not sure I see the resemblance. Am I just not paying close enough attention?

My favorite aria from Jules Massenet's opera, Werther, which is based on Goethe's book, The Sorrows of Young Werther. In the libretto, the lines for this aria can be translated roughly as this:

[Werther.] —"Dream! Ecstasy! Happiness!
I would give my life to keep forever these eyes,
This charming forehead, this adorable mouth,
Astonished and delighted, without anyone else
having a turn to contemplate them for a moment!
That celestial smile! Oh! Charlotte!
I love you and I admire you!"

[Charlotte.] —"We are crazy! Let's go home!"

[Werther.] —"But, will we see each other again?"

It goes on for a few more lines that are recitative, but these are the most important ones, which are also those I like the most.

In any case, the two arias preceding this one are also pretty good in my mind, but their verses don't quite touch me as much as does those in this one.

A bit of a sexist aria; but whatever, it sounds good at least :lol:
