Portada do novo disco de Weird Al Yankovic
O provocador músico e parodiador Weird Al Yankovic lanzará o seu 12º disco Straight Outta Lynwood o 26 de setembro, e preferiu elixir como primeiro single do mesmo unha canción que pode servir coma himno das descargas a través da Internet, Don’t Download This Song, que é unha parodia de We Are The World:

Con este tema parece que Weird Al quere facer unha analoxía entre a unión dos artistas contra a fame en África e a loita contra as descargas musicais na Internet. Ou sexa, que non lle debe de parecer moi ben que a Industria discográfica se defenda con unllas e dentes fronte a un fenómeno inevitable que cambiará o sector, mentres hai outros problemas reais que si precisan de máis atención. Lembremos que se non mercamos discos orixinais os cantantes non poderán mercar coches de luxo, piscinas e xoias…

A letra da canción é a seguinte:

Once in a while maybe you will feel the urge
To break international copyright law
By downloading MP3s from file-sharing sites
Like Morpheus or Grokster or Limewire or KaZaA

But deep in your heart you know the guilt would drive you mad
And the shame would leave a permanent scar
‘Cause you start out stealing songs and then you’re robbing liquor stores
And sellin’ crack and runnin’ over school kids with your car

So don’t download this song
The record store’s where you belong
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should
Oh, don’t download this song

Oh, you don’t wanna mess with the R-I-double-A
They’ll sue you if you burn that CD-R
It doesn’t matter if you’re a grandma or a seven year old girl
They’ll treat you like the evil hard-bitten criminal scum you are

So don’t download this song
Don’t go pirating music all day long
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should
Oh, don’t download this song

Don’t take away money from artists just like me
How else can I afford another solid gold Hum-Vee
And diamond-studded swimming pools
These things don’t grow on trees
So all I ask is, “Everybody, please…”

Don’t donwload this song (Don’t do it, no, no)
Even Lars Ulrich knows it’s wrong (You can just ask him)
Go and buy the CD like you know that you should (You really should)
Oh, don’t download this song

Don’t donwload this song (Oh please, don’t you do it)
Or you might wind up in jail like Tommy Chong (Remember Tommy)
Go and buy the CD (Right now) like you know that you should (Go out and buy it)
Oh, don’t download this song

Don’t download this song (No, no, no, no, no, no)
You’ll burn in hell before too long (and you’ll deserve it)
Go and buy the CD (Just buy it) like you know that you should (You cheap bastard)
Oh, don’t download this song

Por certo, o que se comenta na canción de que a RIAA denunciou por descargar ficheiros a través do KaZaA a unha aboa e a unha nena de 7 anos está baseado en feitos reais (en realidade a nena denuncianda tiña 12 anos).
Xa sabedes o que hai que facer: a finais da setembro tedes que ir a unha tenda de discos e mercar o último álbum de Weird Al… ¡se atopades algunha tenda de discos, que cada día hai menos!

ACTUALIZACIÓN: Dende Chuza! entereime de que xa hai videoclip da canción:
