Songs that Sound Like Other Songs!

December 10, 2012 § 1 Comment

Look everyone, Chris! And songs that sound like other songs!  And yes, those are paper towel rolls in the background, because the bedframe is too short and sometimes Chris bonks his head! SOLUTIONS, NOT CONCUSSIONS.

§ One Response to Songs that Sound Like Other Songs!

    I had a problem with Rock Band, in that Junkies for Fame by Shinedown sounds exactly like Countdown to Insanity by H Block X (in my head), and so I’d get confused and wind up singing the wrong song and then the other players would yell at me. /substandard-nerd problems

    Pop music does seem to go through phases where producers see how much recycling of popular styles they can get away with. We discovered at karaoke a couple of years back that there’s a cluster of early 90s hits that are basically identical, and you can segue straight from Freed from Desire to No Limits to Ooh Ah Just a Little Bit. Also, back in the 70s Brotherhood of Man were famous for fairly blatantly releasing knockoffs of all of Abba’s songs. Vaguely recall a quote from an exasperated Bollywood music producer several years ago saying “There are only seven notes! Of course some songs are going to sound the same!” But I believe the Indian film industry has its share of lawsuits on the subject all the same.
