Because I Got High' by Afroman - this was my first association.

I wonder what happened behind the scenes. Taylor credited Right Said Fred for even less obvious interpolations.

Yeah appears Revenge is the 2nd single. It's a cool tune, quite compelling in how weird it is.

But has anyone else noticed the enormous resemblance to 'Because I Got High' by Afroman? I hope they paid some sort of rights on that, otherwise they're gunna get so sued.. much more of a copy that Blurred Lines was! And a Max Martin lawsuit would be mad, big news probably!... No mention of Afroman or anyone else on the credits (as a sample/interpolation or as a writer other than Max/Shellback/Pink/Eminem)...

I'm also surprised that no one kicked up a fuss about "Hey Ya!" and "Shake It Off", that was also pretty blatent copying of the whole drum part, which they even admitted to (though much less striking than this one). Maybe they're just paying off these other people in private agreements?
Aha! I stumbled over that too a few weeks ago. Regardless of the glacial pace and rambling repetition, there's actually some good insight.

The key point being that (he claims):
Max writes entire melodies first, before anything else.

I took this to mean (if true) that Max will just think of a good melody, THEN add the chords and production, and finally the lyrics. The more I thought about that the more it made sense, since then your melodies aren't boxed in by a backing track. I've tried to do it this way a few times since, and it definitely works... also I dont sing them into my phone til I've completed a whole section. This way FORCES you to write memorable melodies, coz if you can't remember each distinct phrase for a few minutes while you're working on the other phrases, then it's not good enough.

Not sure where he got his info though, from everything I've personally read I got the impression that Max would write melodies to track. Anyone?
