I love this! I came across it trying to put together some example for my Year 6s on copying and when it was and wasn’t wrong. By chance one of my students Rudi mentioned the song Harder Than You Think by Public Enemy.
I did some quick YouTubing and it turns out that Chuck D and co lifted Shirley Bassey’s Jezahel (minus the exceptional dancers and ridiculous facial expressions)
But Shirley Bassey lifted an Italian band’s 1972 hit.
There’s something rather wonderful about seeing all these versions threaded together i think. And I do love the fact that Delirium’s parents seem rather grumblingly to be in this living room video.
