Girl Talk totally raped intellectual property laws, but really, do i care?
some of the victims :D :
Pixies(Where is my mind), Black Eyed Peas(My Humps), Pavement, Nina Simone(o-o-h child), Annie(Heartbeat),50 Cents(In tha club) , Madonna(Hang up), Weezer(Say it ain't so),Simply Red(sunshine, or something like that, it's one of their latest hits),Neutral Milk Hotel(Holland 1945), M.A.R.R.S(pump up the volume), Kansas(Carry on wayward son), and even Phantom Planet's "the O.C."'s theme, hahaha.
there are many more, listen to this record and recognize them yourselves.
