New REBEAT Article: It's the Same Old Song (9 Notable Cases of Music Plagiarism)

Music plagiarism has been a hot topic in the news lately, first plaguing Sam Smith and now involving Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams. In my latest feature for REBEAT, I highlighted some music plagiarism cases that involved more retro songs...did you know that the flute melody in "Down Under" was apparently inspired by an Australian nursery rhyme about a kookaburra bird?

I promise I have some new posts in the works. Here's a look at what is coming to Go Retro this week:

An Ode to Big Ass Home Audio Systems - Exactly what it is; we'll take a fond look back at the elaborate and super sized home stereo system from the 1960s through the 1980s (hint: there's no room here for a puny iPod docking station and speakers.)

Studio 54 in the Suburbs - An exclusive look at one Go Retro reader's gorgeous, groovy circa 1970s and how he restored it to its "Swingtown" retro glory while keeping it modern. Trust me--you're going to LOVE this home!

I hope everyone is having a great week!
