Plagiarism

There’s only so many notes to go round I know and they’ve all done it, but i often hear songs and think ‘wait a minute! That’s...’

What’s your favourite rip offs?

This video of Oasis nicks is quite eye opening. You’d think Noel would’ve covered his tracks a bit better






Staying with the Brit-poppers. Here’s one that always jumped out at me.


14 years earlier...






Both crap songs, but whenever Sam Smith’s ‘Bond song’ comes on the radio, it just sounds a carbon copy of Jacko’s Earth Song. Smith actually won an Oscar for this for best original song.

Nick Van Eede won a fair amount of money & royalties for this.

James Bay’s Hold Back the River is a total rip off of the lumineers’ Charlie Boy

Must be some very worried songwriters out there (and some older ones/surviving families equally rubbing their hands in anticipation) after the Blurred Lines court ruling last week.

I sometimes get just a hint of another song, like when I noticed the verses and riff from Busted's What I Go To School For sound rather like those from Dolly Parton's Home.

Noel Gallagher's always been pretty open about borrowing from other songs, it's not something he tries to sneak through without anyone noticing.

In the Academic World, they now have software linked to the internet and previous students work, which can identify any unattributed sentences and paragraphs in submitted essays and Dissertations. Many students have been failed for unattributed plagiarism. Like music, there's only so many ways of repeating the same information.
Would be interesting if they used the same idea for music. Oasis would never have happened. Rap 'music' would be condensed into 3 albums worth. Grime would be an EP

If that Blurred Lines ruling stands, then just about every songwriter should be worried.

I know - it looks like it has been confirmed so troubling times. But good for the arrangers! Trouble is a lot of them won't have the financial resources to pursue those ripping them off through the courts so much will go unchallenged.
