I actually didn't; but I'll stick to being only a pedant with Foro. Does that sound fair? Same here for H; read LotRs in the early nineties. Are you honestly trying to say that any normal media exposed teen today isn't going to have seen some screen element of Jackson's films; some sketch referencing Gollum (all this stuff is referencing the films, not the books); some advert online or on TV? I know you didn't know who Emma Watson was, but come on!... Okay, address some of this Foro: Think about Hallowed. Now that you know elements were taken from that other track (I don't even know who it's copied from, I didn't listen to it), does this not change you view of Harris' writing ability?; does this change your actual view of the track itself?; does this even change your enjoyment of it? i.e. the genesis of the song (the original ideas behind it; accepting in this example, that they are not Steve's) matters, does it not? And this is important in how you view Steve Harris as a writer (in respect to this song), yes/no? I mean, if Steve Harris has credited the original songwriter, this would make a difference, would it not? A difference in respect to your view of Harris; but would it effect your view of the song itself? Is this not all equally as applicable to literature & adaptations. Do you not see the parallels?
