how on earth did i not realise that before? so blatant
Keeley Hawes in the video = win
2 days ago, my sentiments exactly
The Warriors vs Baseball Furies music
The chorus to Spiritualized’s Electricity is basically the “Viva hookie Street” from Only Fools and Horses.
Also, Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4uxIo4t7xM
I Want A New Drug by Hewey Lewis and the News: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMSFX1Vb3xQ
I'm not even going to bother with the Elastica ones.
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=D1HCv0MAPC4 - came first
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=7wK43DCm-Uc - ripped it off
wasn't that the awful late 90s time when more or less everything sounded liek it used the same three chords?
when they rip them off this hard
they've blatantly played a million festivals together though
The Dandy's song is about a million times better, so I'm ok with it.
Led zepellin - Kashmir
rage against the machine - wake up
vs Ride's Dreams Burn Down
I think it may be a tribute but it would be nice if Coldplay admitted so more openly.
eg. shiver http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=yGhauTPpSJo
jeff buckley's grace http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=siNsgbIWhAQ
and Kraftwerk's Computer Love
This makes me furious everytime I hear it
and completely openly credited as being basically a cover
Samples cleared and payed for and everything
Babyshambles - French Dog Blues
The Hoosiers - Goodbye Mr A
ELO - Mr Blue Sky
The Kinks - Picture Book
Same song, basically.
still, as with Coldplay above, it would be nice if they mentioned it more in interviews.
Handily compiled here
they settled out of court...
travis - she's so strange http://www.last.fm/music/Travis/_/She's+So+Strange
oasis - the hindu times
are ZAPP AND ROGER
battles - tij (from 1min56)
FORWARD RUSSIA - Thirteen
Very similar verses.
beat me to it
They should sue themselves for that then never make music again. Worst band ever.
The Rolling Stones - Torn and Frayed
Love is the key
and Curtis Mayfield "if there's a hell below, we're all gonna go"
so go try hello bulldog and toothache
simon and garfunkel - sounds of silence and the stone roses- made of stone...
oh, and the melody to mad world is in cat steven's matthew and son... listen all the way through- you'll hear it...
The Doors - 'Five To One'
and when giants fall by love is all, but i cant find it.
Plus i only said by MBV and vacuum by gang gang dance, but everyone knows that
MUST be a rip-off of Franz Ferdinand:
And also it's the most painful song I've ever heard.
it's creep. finally someone else makes this point.
theyre good lads
U2 - With Or Without You
can someone please erase this band. Every time i hear this song i want to kill someone.
it's the airborne toxic event i am on about. their name evokes farts, and that song is just shit.
It is my favourite song ever and sounds like various New Order songs but nothing specific that I know of.
has an element of
or vice versa.
talking heads came first.
shut up and let me go
is a rip off of sugarhill gang - rappers delight
though i guess it does sound a bit like take me out
the chorus of this for the middle 8. It's a pretty vague one though!
is near as dammit Spoon's I Turn My Camera On.
Also, Trouble by Pink has a guitar riff throughout that's virtually note for note nicked from a Husker Du song off Warehouse Songs And Stories the title of which currently escapes me.
is like a rubbish, drunk, secondary-school band covering I Turn My Camera On.
Has a song that is basically an Early Peaches track. The words have just been mainstreamlined. Can't remember the track.
It's on A Maximum High, I think it's Out By My Side.
Back Street Girl was on the original Between The Buttons but only the UK version, which has never been released on CD. Canny move by the Sheds, because a quick Google suggests that noboby else has noticed this one.
Check it out, it's the most shameless thing I've ever heard.
Dirty Harry (?) or other one of their big singles, is clearly ripped from U2's Staring at the Sun.
"You can't go taking it back, there's a time and a place for that,
But I know how I feel About You Now"
was a complete rip off of Pavement's Carrot Rope...
Mind it's certainly not my favorite Pavement moment, and they lifted a few ideas themselves from Flying Nun bands and the Fall.
In the nicest possible way.
Protocol: Where's The Pleasure?
Joy Division: Transmission
White Rose Movement: Love Is A Number
Only Ones: Another Girl Another Planet
Libertines: Don't Look Back Into The Sun
Protex - Don't Ring Me Up
...but there's a track on Arthur Lee's unloved 1992 album "Arthur Lee & Love" (aka "Five String Serenade") which is an exact note-for-note rip of "Can't Seem To Make You Mine" by The Seeds. Except the senile old sod credited it as a whole new composition. Whoops!
BTW I'm new (hello) How do you post stuff on threads without replying to yrself?
i dont thing its a case of rippin one off this time though, i think its just parallel genius (h)
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=njqRt7PH-5I - You Made Me Realise
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=tUkJQKkUFRk - Silver Rocket
That Tim and Sam's Tim and Sam Band's song?
Archers of Loaf - Learo, You're a Hole
The Walkmen - The Rat
Both great, great songs though.
Exactly the same chord progression and tempo.
Who's Got a Match? by Biffy Clyro
are basically the verses of Lay All Your Love On Me by Abba.
sounds exactly like 'If You're Into It' by Flight of the Conchords.
But I don't know which came first.
Amusement Parks on Fire - Venus in cancer
but I wouldn't have it any other way.
controversially, i think i prefer the second one
....but I remember seeing somewhere that the same people were behind both. Possibly balls though.
White Stripes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZGHTkmhxgQ
Florence and the Machine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpsDegqioVA
It'll blow your mind.
And I dont think it was credited. I may be wrong.
every guitar-based post-rock band since 2001- mogwai
Shakedown on 9th street by Ryan Adams
is a rip off of Cohen's Suzanne.

At Night by shakedown - original
lovesick - ripoff
crosseyed and painless by talking heads - original
In the hospital - ripoff

davy graham - she moved thru the bizzare
i never see davy graham get credit for this but then he never gets credit for anything, hardly anyone even noticed he died.
Plenty of people noticed Davy Graham died. And he doesn't get any credit for "Black Mountain Side" because it wasn't him they supposedly ripped off – it was Bert Jansch. Here:
The Who- My Generation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdRs1gKpeGg
Jet- Are you Going to be my Girl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAxUIjJrFKQ
