All of the world's greatest art is stolen. Each week the Shields Brothers talk about musicians, game developers, authors, artists and film makers and reveal who they were influenced by or who they just straight up copied.
159. Melania Trump: You Couldn’t Steal From Anybody Else?
This is a podcast primarily about music but on occasion we have to recognize other forms of stealing. At the RNC last night, Melania Trump plagiarized Michelle Obama. The irony was too good not to talk about it.
158. Ghostbusters 2016 Still Stealing #FlashbackFriday
The new Ghostbusters movie is out this weekend and we ain’t afraid of no ghosts or plagiarism accusations. So we’re looking at the Ghostbuster theme and all the drama that swirled around this famous plagiarism case.
BTW, we’re excited to see an all female cast — Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Chris Hemsworth, Sigourney Weaver, Michael K. Williams (Omar from The Wire).
157. How Do You Think About Music? Musical Tropes
Traditionally, we break music up into genres – rock, country, classical, etc. But what if we broke it up in a different way? This week we talk about musical tropes that transcend genre. Enjoy!
156. Italians Didn’t Just Invent the Meatball: Musical Terms
So many of the words we use in music come from some surprising places. We had fun with this week’s musicology episode looking at common classical music terms you know – piano, A cappella, and even tuba. Hope you enjoy!
155. The Ubiquitous 3 Chords : The Beatles & One Direction
Summer will be here this weekend! And this episode is sweet but short — we talk about the chords that connect Grease, One Direction and The Beatles. We do a singing demonstration – Enjoy!
Shields Brothers Mashup: Twist & Shout and What Makes You Beautiful
154. The Beat That Dominates Music: The 4 on the Floor
