SamoKodela Posted March 11, 2019 Share Posted March 11, 2019 (edited) I've always defended Zeppelin, for most of their plagiarism being limited to first two albums and even there they added so much of their own, while latter on they had so many original compositions, but there was always that element that ofcourse doesn't make them plagiarist or just a band with a new sound or great producers, it's just that there were little bits and pieces of lyrics or music taken from others or that there was music that directly inspired them to write their own. It's always like that in music, so I'm not trying to make anyone feel disappointed, although I might be a bit every time I discover something like this, because I guess we are all more impressed if something is like totally out of the blue, but I guess it almost was to late for that in Zeppelin's time, centuries of great music have already been happening, although The Beatles have certainly been noted a lot less for being inspired by others in their vocal melodies. But overall Zeppelin's song were so original and when you add Plant's melodies and lyrics on top, it's all just great and he was rarely accused for taking others melodies or lyrics apart from the obvious ones, even if perhaps those melodies were sometimes not that catchy because it's not pop! Anyway here is a scene from Hitchcocks movie Vertigo and the music after 1:10 written by Bernard Herrmann might just have inspired parts of Kashmir: Edited March 11, 2019 by SamoKodela Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
