Purpose of use

This sample illustrates a section of the article directly discussing the song, "You Really Got Me". This song is extremely significant in the band (and rock music as a whole's) history; most likely their most famous song, it is near essential to a least show a portion of it within the article. It is believed that a sample of "You Really Got Me" vastly improves the understanding of the subject, The Kinks, as a whole. The unique, distinct riff shown in the song is also directly discussed in the article. It was created by Dave Davies' mangling of a small Elpico amp (Source: Hinman, Doug: The Kinks: All Day and All of the Night : Day-By-Day Concerts, Recordings and Broadcasts, 1961-1996, ISBN 087930765X; see p. 29). This clip illustrates this unique sound. It illustrates a moment in the band's career that would last only a year, the group would soon switch from their hard rock and R&B sound to a more reflective, introspective, and observant style (See Stephen Thomas Erlewine's The Kinks on Allmusic.com). This clip serves to show this distinct moment. In a nutshell; a sample of the song shows one of the group's most famous songs from a prime point in their career. It is believed to improve the integrity and the quality of the article as a whole.

Rationale for fair use in "Power chord"[edit]

This is a sound sample from a commercial recording. Its inclusion here is claimed as fair use because:

  • It illustrates an educational article that specifically discusses the song from which this sample was taken. The section of music used is discussed in the article in relation to the song's lyrics, musical and vocal style, and may contain part of the song's chorus.
  • It is a sample of no more than 30 seconds from a much longer recording, and could not be used as a substitute for the original commercial recording or to recreate the original recording.
  • It is of a lower quality than the original recording.
  • It is not replaceable with an uncopyrighted or freely copyrighted sample of comparable educational value.
  • It is believed that this sample will not affect the value of the original work or limit the copyright holder's rights or ability to distribute the original recording.
  • The audio sample is a copyrighted work. U.S. copyright laws apply to this work. Should a free or public domain sample be located, it should be used in place of this audio sample.

I believe that this use of the excerpt is in good faith, and that its inclusion enhances the quality of th articles Power chord, without reducing the commercial value of the recording from which it was drawn. Jagged 85 (talk) 02:25, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
