Human Capital

 

I watched Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday. Denmark was the winner last year, so the show was sent from Copenhagen live on Saturday. They had a great song last year and followd up with a great song on Saturday too. Once the Danish song started I thought to my self that I have heard the song before.

220px-YouToMeAreEverything

Basim represented Denmark on Saturday and Basim and the rest of his crew did a great gig, but the song called Cliche love song is a plagiat. I mine opinion, this song should be banned, but NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT IT! Have a listen to the song and make up you mind. Click the link below.

Basim – Cliche love song

This song is similar to a great hit from a group called The Real Thing. They had their first hit on the UK charts in July 1976, with the song called You to me are everything. This was on top for three week in the U.K but peaked at nr 64 on Billboard top 100. It didn`t reach the top in the US because the flood of the coversongs. Have a listen to the link below:

 

The Real Thing = You to me are everything

 

Have a listen to both songs and make up you mind. It is very similar. You can listen to them on the headphones made by Dr Dre`s company called Beat Electronics which is in talk with Apple Inc. Nobody understand why Apple is trying to buy Beat Electronics but it is probably something there which is not released yet.

 

In addition to the brand I think Apple is buying knowledge like Dr Dre and the music mogule Jimmy Lovine. Apple is not buying the physical products, but the brand and a human capital. This is the future of the business. How much is a brain wort? How much is an idea worth?

 

Facebook did the same when they bought WhatsApp. What did they really buy? Not the physically app, but the brand and the human capital. The question is how much is it worth? I really look forward to the value of the app WhatsApp. What about Beat Electronics? Apple want to compete with Spotify and start a streaming business, because iTunes sales are declining.
