As to originality:
Sometimes I think that having so much recorded music available so readily

buttonpush on the CD player away.

But I think it's possible & good to ignore a lot of that.  Screw the fact
that anyone can plainly see that all you've done is "steal" from Lothar and
the Hand People & the Love Unlimited Orchestra.   If it feels good, play
