Original Songs

Many of these songs are not linked at the current time. This is due to inexplicable actions by GOOGLE a few months ago. Suddenly, they decided that I had placed material on youtube that I did not have the rights to. This is patently false. So, without informing me of their incorrect information, they PERMANENTLY DISABLED my youtube account, and destroyed decades of my personal creations that I had stored on my site. (It’s not youtube anymore. It’s theirtube.) Fortunately, I had copies of some of the songs on other hard drives, and I’m restoring them as I find them. But, unfortunately, I trusted GOOGLE, and they betrayed me. 

You could be next. 

If I had the money and the energy I would take Google to court and at least try to get my youtube channel name “StankenRoseGazette” back. Or my email address greg.macg@gmail.com. These are buried in a digital grave, I guess, until the end of time, or the internet, whichever comes first. 

The lesson I learned is simple: 

DO NOT TRUST GOOGLE WITH YOUR DATA. THEY CAN DESTROY IT AT ANY MOMENT, AND YOU CAN’T STOP THEM.

Remember back in ancient internet history when Google’s mission statement was “Don’t Be Evil” ?? 

Yeah well, that ain’t happening now. They have gone to the dark side. Read this for more info:

You try to call them and you only get auto response emails, which read like a page out of the novel “1984.”

Anyway, I just got the first one redone, “Brian and Greg Write a Song.”
