: If I were interested in recording a parody of a song, would I need to get the permission of the original artist?
First, I'm not a lawyer, but have worked in music publishing. Generally though, you need to get the permission of the copyright owner of the original song, which is generally the songwriter's publisher. This has nothing to do with the artist, unless the artist wrote the song and/or owns the publishing.
