Musicians and composers were placed in a state of panic last night when scientists revealed that every possible combination of notes that could be used for new songs had been exhausted. The main implications of this is that no original pieces of music can ever be composed from today.
'This is terrible', said a spokesman for the musicians union, 'it means that we have to rip off songs from years ago that no one will remember in order to feed our kids. Some would argue that recently composed songs have been ripping off old standards anyway'
The idea of old songs being revived means that The Birdie Song will be re-released in 2050. There are no plans at this point though to re-record 'Agadoo' by hilarious funsters Black Lace.
