James Milne has a song ripped off by Bic Runga...

James Milne from the Reduction Agents has been awarded New Zealand's top songwriting prize, The Silver Scroll. The award was for his song "Apple Pie Bed" which was released under his pseudonym, Lawrence Arabia. If you wanna see the original then here ya go...



However, if you really must, then you can also see the song being earnestly covered by local pop darling Bic Runga and a massive choir at the award ceremony...



It isn't the first time, Milne has been nominated for this award and the previous occasion led to this OTT funk version of "The Pool" by Spacifix...
