Here’s The Blast from the Past Problem: So, last night, as Lisa and I were driving home from the VERY swanky Hollywood premiere party we had made a cameo at – we were listening to some tunes. We turned up the volume and got excited for what we assumed was one of our favorite songs…..the beat was the same – the melody was the same – but just as we were about to scream: HEATWAVE! The Vandellas sang: QUICKSAND!
Actual Problem: Same song – different words! There could have been a whole record, using the same basic melody and hook, devoted to natural disasters! HEATWAVE! QUICKSAND! TYPHOON! EARTHQUAKE!
