Is it just me or do these words found on a UK news site smack of music-nationalism? Does it sell ads? Is it wide-spread? Is it contagious? Does it matter? Am I too sensitive about this issue and this is just a little home-band pride and not music-nationalism?
Coldplay sued by Joe Satriani for copyright infringement
On the one hand, you have Satriani’s six-and-a-half-minute instrumental from 2004, with cheese-ball guitar wailing, moments of shredding, and long bouts of soloing. On the other hand, you have Viva La Vida: Eno-produced, Grammy-nominated, full of strings, church bells, drum rolls, chorales. And a sort of harpsichord solo. Certainly Viva La Vida is cheese-ball as well – but it feels more cheddar than Dairylea.

Not sure what Dairylea is, but this is their website.
And, just for the record, I don’t like either Satriani or Coldplay.
Damn, will this ever end? Here is another contender for the same song. (Thanks LR)
