He gonna get stomped like a cockaroach.
If I had written that song note for note on stone tablets, I wouldn’t admit to it.
Smart move. His song had under 300 streams before the suit. Let's see how many he gains in a week.
There are only so many notes, and only so many ways to put them together. I guess music composition has jumped the shark and we're at the end of history. Sad. I'll miss music.
The beginning of his sounded like Dust in the Wind.
Harder to disprove too. Court for years
Wait a minute!! I almost wrote "Almost" back in 1985.
That's it, I'm contacting my lawyers Dewey, Cheatham and Howe.
Stay tuned for a class action suit you song stealing rat bastard.
I'm not sure how to feel about this being that it's basically the little guy up against the industry. The same industry that threaten music lovers for doing covers of songs they love for fun in their own homes and posting non monetized videos of them.
I’m pretty sure that Ogg, an early prehistoric musician, also used G, A, and B in one of his original compositions, pounding hollow stumps and rocks with his club...
Well hopefully it will backfire terribly on the bum trying to sue.
If he wins a bunch of writers will be suing him.
It will be interesting to read what @warrent has to say.
My thought, too. Paging Kerry Livgren... it's payday! I smell a cool coupla bucks.
That was my first thought as well. Intentionally composing a general melody to get close to the edge, just enough to draw copying from more popular artists and an infringement lawsuit in order to get publicity.
Of course, it could also be the case that Gaga copied it. I haven't listened to both songs A/B and compared them. But that's a lot different than paying a songwriter to write a hit song for you.
I hope it's dismisssd as frivolous, which it is.
Yeah it’s pretty Shallow of him.
This is stupid. Can the Catholic Church sue everybody who resolves the IV to the I? Dumb.
I don't hear it at all. I hear an even closer resemblance between his song and Kansas' "Dust In the Wind" though...
There are SO many cases of far closer musical similarities, this doesn't even register with me. Neither did the Stairway/Taurus or Blurred Lines/Got to Give It Up kerfuffles.
Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up" vs. Escape Club's "Wild Wild West"
Peter Murphy "Cuts You Up" vs. Toad the Wet Sprocket "All I Want" (the verses, not the chorus)
The Who "Baba O'Riley" vs. One Direction "Best Song Ever"
The Beatles "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da" vs. Offspring "Why Don't You Get a Job"
The Kinks "Picture Book" vs. Green Day "Warning" vs. Steriogram "Walkie Talkie Man"
Stompbox "No Woods" vs. Disturbed "Down With the Sickness"
Def Leppard "Pour Some Sugar On Me" vs. Warrant "Cherry Pie" vs. One Direction "Midnight Memories"
I'd mention Kraftwerk "Computer Love" vs. Coldplay "Talk", but Coldplay actually got permission.
