THE BIRD AND THE BEE - Fucking boyfriend (dj supermarkt shredmix)


berlin battery exclusive: i did this shredmix (something between a remix, an edit, a mashup or something else...) for great UK duo The Bird and the Bee. It's quite an electro/nu-ravebomb, i must say. Tested it to great results... If you like nice pop music in the style of Saint Etienne, Lily Allen, Prefab Sprout or Belle & Sebastian (you better do not listen to my shredix) but you should check out their amazing debut album simply entitled "the bird and the bee". One of my 2007 top ten albums.

hello mandy.

thanks for your comment.
nice to hear from you.

this is "cunt" speaking.

yes, you are right. i stole it! and i bought a villa in St Tropez from the money i earned by "stealing" Misjahs song for this internet only mash up....

i am surprised that you don't know that actually this has been done before. It is an old artform in club music. Ever heard of 2 many djs, erol alkan... (i won't mention the many not so famous ones, because obviously you don't know anything about this.)

sorry to hurt your feelings.

I promise to never ever use a song by Misjah again. PROMISED! Ever!

in love and understanding 2008

your

dj supermarkt (a.k.a. cunt)

(oh, and one small thing for the future: the internet shouldn't stop you from behaving okay... yours truely. just because you don't stand in front of me, doesn't mean you can not hurt my feelings)

Usually when other people's tunes are used they're given the credit they deserve by at least having their name mentioned, something you utterly failed to do in this case. To make it worse, you pass off this remix as your own -

I'm not stupid, and I know music gets sampled without permission, but you've lifted pretty much the whole track and not given the person who put all the hard work in even as much as a mention. It will have cost the original artist much time and money to get this track out..

"(oh, and one small thing for the future: the internet shouldn't stop you from behaving okay...)"

And maybe because this is an 'internet only mash up" it doesn't make it ok to STEAL someone else's work.. I'm not hiding behind my keyboard.. I'd say the same to your face if I met you.

Maybe you should do the decent thing and take the tune off your MySpace page too.. and I don't just mean the download link..

Still, I thank you for removing the link on this page and admitting you stole the track, although I very much doubt my rant had anything to do with it, it was probably the original artist himself finding out that prompted the action.

Hey "Mandy"! You have stolen my songtitle and have chosen to use it for your destructive and deeply evil ways,shame on you! Further, you dont even give credit to me and use my very own songtitle for your cowardly attacks on modern creativity. My song made so many women (and men!) around the world more than happy and saved uncountable lifes and broken hearts. Now you come along and abuse this lovely connection. Dont ruin it all in the name of Mandy! Check out Andy Warhols work and reception on distinction between original and copy, if you wish, although I have little hope for your hateful soul. Au revoir! B.M.

Hi Barry!

It seems you are no better, if you claim the song 'Mandy' as your own, as it was originally written by Scott English. Shame, because that could have been quite a good insult..

Anyway, back to the argument in hand.. My objection is the blatant theft of someone else's track and the attempt to pass it off as their own. However, since both you and DJ Supermarkt seem to think this was an ok thing to do in the first place, I have no doubt that you will both utterly fail to see the point of my, and others, objections.

One has to wonder, as The Bird and The Bee were obviously credited for their part in the song, why did DJ Supermarkt utterly fail to credit Misjah for the use of his track in this 'shredmix', unless he was trying to hide the fact that someone else did the majority of the work?

Barry Manilow hat gesagt…

Oh Mandy, the song that Scott English wrote is called "Brandy" and NOT "Mandy". Further I did not ever claim that I wrote this song, but rather through working with this composition, it turned out to be the "Mandy" I was hoping for. Thus, this is my gift to mankind, nothing more and nothing less. And what if the cover/copy surpasses the original in one or the other way, just because of the unique interpretation? Maybe go have some "Brandy", Scotch or Bourbon for inspiration! A plus. B.M.
