Eduardo Passos

@PenguinWrestler When someone plays a song, that person makes that song. Every time a song is played, the song is created, built, from scratch.

Austin T

@Eduardo Passos exactly, bake a cake, and you will have made one humans original creation, in entirely your own way, different outcome, same source.

Grayson Harwood

Anything off el camino? Every other album, every other song is absolute class
