Isn't "LOVE" a bit strong, "like" "enjoy" would be more better, but to each their own.
But.........posting song lyrics without posting a source is against Topix rules, isn't it ?, just saying, because you seem to point that out to all who post on the Beatle's forum, hmmm Bill.

Actually anything put on the Internet becomes public domain,there are no Internet copyright laws,if you don't want your stuff copied put it in a magazine, then it becomes copyrighted.
That's why music,movies and articles are copied online, because the law can do nothing about it, there is no such thing as the Internet police.
If you choose to name a source, it is strictly up to the person, you will not be fined or arrested.
Of course the original author might get mad, but that's all the author can get.
Post without a source it's all good.

But, the website being posted on might remove it, it all depends on where it's posted.

I still can't figure out why Eminem or Michael Jackson are on the Beatles forum.They are nothing a like or even related to the fab Four in any way.Most folks over 50 aren't big fans of Eminem and Jackson has fans all ages espescially under 20.But most true Beatle fans would still agree they don't need to be on this forum.I for one could do without either of them but for those who do create other rooms on the Jackson forum not here.Same with Flip hop jive talk Eminem who sells a lot of lame records.

This isn't a beatles forum. The title is "Eminem is the Best-Selling Artist of the Decade" so i don't exactly see where you're getting that from

If you look at the header it plainly says posted in the Beatles Forum that's where I got it from at the very beginning above the first post.

Retarded lyrics, but what else do you expect from the freak that is Eminem? And not even Elton John is as gay as M&M.

I would much rather listen to Two Virgins than Emenim's crap. John & Yoko didn't need high-tech instruments back in 1968. That was real music. Emenim can go die in a hole.

beatles are now old and bygone and they can not influence the new generation. Eminem can he can use his awsome magnitude in inspiring people to stop crimes instead of doing it. Beatles cant do that. mcCartny cant do that now . And yes mj still is the greatest artist to step on the face of earth.
How in the heck is Eminem "inspiring"? How is rap "inspiring"? I like Michael Jackson, but how can he influence people if he is "old and bygone" like The Beatles? Well, to quote you, "Eminem cant do that". He is a poser. If McCartney can't do "that" than why does he sell out at concerts and make so much money? Because he is a legend, unlike Eminem, who, in about 10 or so years, will never be remembered. You are wrong.

EnemaM isn't talented it shocks me that moron has sold so many records I guess there are a lot of morons that buy his crap.He can't play a guitar or drums and he really can't sing but yet this white porch monkey sells a lot of his stupid crappy records .I know it doesn't take much style or talent these days to make it big.When a dufus moron can do it It only goes to show millions have bad taste in music now a days.

I'd rather listen to country and western than EnemaM and I hate redneck cowboy country music.This chump just got lucky like Vanilla Ice did many years ago.A lot of fools buy rap because they think it makes them hip or some type of tough gangster or some other retarded thing.

Emimem isn't the best but he markets himself well with his rhyme schemes. Compare the wordplay and complexity of his lyrics to any other mainstream musican. And for the record he makes his own beats along with Dr. Dre. The rhyme schemes, word play and multis are what makes Em a musician. You just do not get what complexity it takes to design rap lyrics on that level. It literally takes a master level of poetry and wordplay along with simulies and being able to multi well. It is music whether or like it or not.
