Pass this letter along to Sam Bradley
For whatever reason, Sam is trying to say that his song “Too Far Gone” is the same as your song “Never Think” from the Twi-soundtrack. Now, I believe the both of you when you say you wrote the song(s) together, but what I don’t understand is why you both seem to think (or Sam thinks) that the songs are the same song.
I kinda consider myself an expert on music. I am quite musical (just rocked “Bella’s lullaby on the keyboard, btw) and I majored in music business in college. So.. here’s the thing: when a song played by Sam has a different tune than the song YOU play, and when Sam’s lyrics are different than yours and when the tempo is different for both versions (not the mention the titles of the songs) THEY AREN’T THE SAME SONG. I will give you this- they are both in the key of C- congratulations (but Beethoven’s symphony No. 1 opus 21 is as well- oh! did you guys write that with him?) Update 1/7: Sam Bradley informed me that his song is in D and Rob’s is in C. Whoops, my bad, Sam. I failed you with my ‘expertise’ this time around. I promise to never do that again. xo
Sorry for the sarcasm, but I’m just wondering why you guys keep saying that the song is the same when it’s so clearly NOT the same. In fact, I actually remember some of my copyright law (snore) from college and learning about the derivative work, so I’m 98.7% sure you could actually file those copyright claims separately- as TWO songs.
I’m all for Sam saying he wrote it with you- he seems like a nice guy and not trying to ride your fame wagon or anything, but just admit it already- you guys were probably drunk and you wrote two songs… both in the key of C… just like Beethoven..then you got confused and said you wrote the same song and everyone was all hyped and excited. Then Sam got a copy of the soundtrack and called you in a panic saying “dude.. that’s not the song I’ve been saying we wrote together.”
Listen for yourself
Rob lovers sound off- does anyone agree with me? or am I crazy and just missing something?
