November 13, 2007 by krisis Earlier tonight in the back of a taxi I realized that Garbage’s “Bleed Like Me” is cribbed pretty directly from “Walk On the Wild Side” by Lou Reed. Otherwise, nothing to report. No related posts.
They do that a lot, sometimes directly and sometimes indorectly but it might as well have been ripped off (see “Tears, Can’t Cry These”). cherry lips ripped off some song from the 70s or 80s I heard in a pizzeria uno. I’d tell you what song it was, except that no one who I asked knew. I can at least say that musically it was not-for-note identical.
