This song was created for Game of Bands round 222 : "Steal From Public Domain Classical Music"

Lyrics:

> This song steals from JS. Bach’s Prelude No.1 in C Major (aka BWV 846). The bassline and lead synth are using the exact melody from the prelude but with a different rhythm.

1:02 - Verse 1

Pack it up, the game is done
Not a penny left to be made
The last possible sequence of sounds
Just entered the public domain

No more music industry
Welcome to post-scarcity
Endless creativity
And the best part, it's all free

No need to pay
It’s yours to play
Who would have it any other way

It’s in your hands
No strings attached
Plug into the creative commons


1:58 - Chorus

Every hook and every verse
Plug into the creative commons
Every twist on every word
Plug into the creative commons

Every note ever been played
In every combination made
It's all yours starting today
No need to pay


2:26 - Verse 2

Name your genre, name your year
We've got it all right here
Close down the record stores
It's time we learn to share

From the first words sung in key
To the final symphony
Wherever beat meets melody
It's all here and it's all free

No need to pay
It’s yours to play
Who would have it any other way

It’s in your hands
No strings attached
Plug into the creative commons
