Ripping off Kerli

Post by MoonChildLuis on Fri Jun 11, 2010 9:53 pm

I know that this took place awhile ago but I feel that I should cover it. A post by kerlikoiv.com covered a music sampling done by Elisa Schwartz. Elisa's Carried Away may sound good but that may be due to the fact that it sound similar to Kerli's Red Flags. What do you guys think about this? Personally I don't believe that this is a coincidence. I hate the fact that these "artist" feel that its ok to steal Kerli's original ideas. At the very least credit her genius.

I know I want the songs to be a surprise, to be honest when I went to the new songs post i was both happy and upset. I was happy because i got to see the amazing titles she came up with and they are genius. But that also makes me upset because they should have been a surprise.

But some songs come from "music libraries" and licenses for them can be purchased by multiple artists.

Didn't someone ask Kerli about this on her formspring and she said something about how it was the same producer for both songs? Like it was the producer's fault?

Anyway, I agree. It really sucks.

And Red Flags really is 10000x better than that song

I really hate when people steal other person's music or style.
I mean, start to do your own things, bitch!
Anyway, Kerli is much much much better than that girl, I don't even know who she is.

Yeah, she sounds sort of average =/ But I feel like I shouldn't judge since I haven't listened to her other stuff.

well, i gues a good(ish) news is that the songs (perfect day, speed limit, scar tissue, xo, pretty red apple) aren't gonna be on the album, so even if some people think that they're gonna ruin the surprise by distribution them, they wont. now im a bit sad that they wont be on the album Very Happy i really wanna hear them.

oh! kerli said ONE of these songs will be on the album!

Perfect Day sounds like Beautiful Day...

Anyway, Kerli said something on formspring about this. Same producer. She thinks he saw it wasn't on a Kerli album so he reused the track for the other girl. Grrrr.

She might be giving them to other artists or they might not fit in with the rest of her album's theme. Kerli did say she'd have some free downloads for us in the future, not sure if it'll be those songs though.

but at the same time on formspring kerli said the producer of the track was probably really proud of the background track of red flags and kerli wasn't really using the track anymore so he decided to sell it to someone else. it's understandable.

I was talking to a friend, apparently this song by elisa was on an EP from 2008. She made it in apple pro logic (the software that macbook users make to produce) and it's very well likely that these instrument loops are presets and are built into the software automatically, and Kerli just happened to use the same ones for Red Flags. It happens all the time (eg. usher's love in this club)

Oh yeah now i remember how did this sound so similar! Very Happy People thought it was Heidi's demo but it was Elisa anyway.
I was so pissed off because i hoped Heidi got something bit hotter xD
