To start, Jamendo (creative common’s search engine) SUCKS. Everytime I would search a song, it would flash the results then quickly take me back to search page. I don’t know if this was a malfunction caused by my web browser or the actual site. So, I left Jamendo and took my search to Youtube.
The Juicy Stuff
I originally wanted to share the song, “Taro” by Alt-J, but I couldn’t seem to find it using the Creative Commons Search so I figure it’s probably doesn’t have a creative commons license. While conducting my search, I came across this cool remix of “Breezeblocks.” I posted the original song a little while ago, click here to listen.

The song relates to my blog simply because my blog is about me and it relates to me. Although this assignments requires an explanation of why it is OK for me to be using this media on my blog, it doesn’t meat the Fair Use Checklist. Being the deviant that I am, I am still including this in my blog because it has a creative commons license, and my reason for sharing this song does not violate the Fair Use checklist. The remix does in fact feature major parts of the original song but still shows original contents with the new electronic beats added by Martijn Reening. I am sharing this video purely for educational purposes so I believe I can’t be arrested for this. 🙂
