Ok, so say you learn a extremely popular song now, like YYZ or some song you think is amazing, then you go back in time from before it was made - Would you make it (or like a whole album of super popular songs) before the actual song, so people would think you are awesome, or would you feel bad about it and not do it.


EDIT: There would be no paradoxes or anything. The only difference is the original artist wouldn't have made the money/fame from the song, and you would.

I wouldn't do that but I would do something similar
If anyone's seen Back To The Future... well they'll know where I've nicked this idea from.

Buy a book of sports results over the last 5 years or so, go back 5 years and start betting

BLA TIME WARP


You can never fucking trust Canada when Canada decides to report on world news that doesn't concern Canada. Canada is only in it for Canada's sake. Canada doesn't even know Batman.

Fuck Canada

You do realize even if you had the power to steal the songs if you went back in time, youd still have to write the whole songs, youd have to get a band who you would have to teach to play the songs, you cant just say, Ive got this amazing song called YYZ, here bassist, learn how to play it, oh wait, I dont have a tab and I have no idea how to play it on bass. Sucks for me, I guess ill just make Smoke on the Water then.

It's not hard to get sheet music now and go back in time, man.

Well except the back in time part.

For the record, I have sheet music for guitar bass and drums for YYZ.
