SONGWRITERS, TAKE HEED

acehotel:

Behold Joan — today is her birthday. Here she is with Bob working something out. Take her lead and quick, for you only have a few days left to rewrite the Happy Birthday song, and history, in her honor. WFMU and the Free Music Archive are receiving entries through January 13 to topple this unsingable atrocity from the throne as a way to wish the Creative Commons a happy tenth and free us all from the tyranny of the copyright police (who charge a cool $10k for the song to appear in films and television). Please get Mooging, strumming and humming and show us what you’ve got. If you win, your brand new version of this underwhelming wart on American culture will be preserved forever in the cultural amber that is the Creative Commons. And you’ll get three cheers from the countless indie filmmakers who’ve had to cough up insane fees to do a cake scene. While, yes, this is a mild entry on the scale of injustices, who says your approach to the latter can’t be holistic? Once you’re world famous you can use your prominent stature to solve climate change and institute competitive origami as the standard global method of conflict resolution. Tally ho!
