Has anyone heard the tracks? Are they identical? Are Coldplay going down? Who's gonna win the X factor?
2+2 together equals shitty cheese, like red leicester shitty cheese, the lowest of the low that needs half a bottle of worcester sauce
and btw, there's only ever one winnner in the x factor, winner for the biggest cock in thw world and that prize goes to mr Dermot O Leary (the man with Britney Spears tourettes)
I'll bet you've got webbed toes and smelly ears
Can you really imagine Chris Martin listening to Joe Satriani for inspiration?
from Viva la Vida.
Only just read the article, what a tosser. Here's the track:
This really only illustrates one thing: The conventions of modern guitar music have straitjacketed performers to such an extent that there is no longer any need for an imagination. It's now just easy to fashion a career out of a few basic chord sequences and motifs that everyone finds, deep down, very familiar (and therefore pleasant) - because they've been hearing them without registering what they're that it's the same thing over and over for generations.
Not necessarily a bad thing - just a fact of music's evolution.
Here's some more:

Apparently I'm not the only one to have noticed it - it's on the Wikipedia article for that song. Tenuous, but funny.
comparing the two and the basic vocal line is pretty much identical to part of Satriani's solo, but it's a really, really standard melodic progression so I wouldn't say there's a whole lot of basis for the law suit.
I bet Satriani knows it too - but they'll probably have to credit him on it which means he'll get shitloads of money.
Also, how god awful is Satriani's music....
But Satriani's barking mad if he thinks it'll fly in court. Don't use the spliced together comparison on YouTube, the guy who made it intentionally sped up and repitched Viva La Vida so they went together. Load up the original Satriani song and the Viva La Vida vid and set them up so VLV's first verse starts as Satriani's solo gets going. Different pitch, different tempo, similar for approximately three bars and then it's different. It's a bloody simple progression you can hear in dozens of songs. Even if it was completely identical it'd be well within copyright rules of musical infringement anyway if I recall.
Look for the Linkin Park one. It owns so hard.
Different chords, different melody. The only similarity is that they're both Nickelback songs.
spring to mind
The chords are the same though. And the melody is different in only the most superficial way.
I hope Piss Fartin gets Satriani's axe wedged up his arse.
Total Satriani acolyte. I know, right?
