I must be out of the dad-rock loop, cuz it didn't occur to me until yesterday how similar the intros of Tom Petty's "American Girl" and the Strokes' "Last Nite" are (the shuffly drums, the one-note guitar, the 4-5 thing in the bass).

Other examples of songs sounding (partially or entirely) like other songs?

The Jam's "Start" is a xerox of the Beatles' "Taxman"

Elastica's "Waking Up" is mysteriously simillar to the Stranglers' "No More Heroes".

Elastica's "Waking Up"

*obligatory post about Elastica/Wire connection*

Sloan's "She Means What She Says" = The Nazz "Open My Eyes"

Mr Noodles (Mr Noodles), Monday, 9 September 2002 19:58 (eighteen years ago) link

That one White Stripes song has the same "oh-oh-oh-oh" vocal line as "Middle of the Road" by the Pretenders. That band Gaunt had a song which took a similar vocal line from a Naked Raygun song. Melissa Etheridge's voice sounds like Steve Perry's to me. And the list goes on and on.

"Do Ya" = "Fox on the Run."

Jody Beth Rosen, Monday, 9 September 2002 20:02 (eighteen years ago) link

I'm not sure if this is dedicated to intentional or unintentional soundalike moments, but Man Or Astro-Man's "Nitrous Burn Out" incorporates a bit of the solo from Van Halen's "Panama" somewhere along the halfway mark.

Nate Patrin, Monday, 9 September 2002 20:03 (eighteen years ago) link

"Her Head's Revolving" by the Three O'Clock is also a rip on "Open My Eyes" by the Nazz.

"Last" by Nine Inch Nails (on the BROKEN e.p.) recalls Queen's "Fight from the Inside" (down to a stolen riff). Trent's a big Queen fan, allegedly.

The first note of Cheap Trick's "Stop This Game" (on ALL SHOOK UP) is a slow fade-in that is purportedly the last note of SGT.PEPPER's.

The Sex Pistols' "Holidays in the Sun" ripped off The Jam's "In the City"

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Monday, 9 September 2002 20:03 (eighteen years ago) link

I think the "oh oh-o-o-o" bit in Morrissey's 'Suedehead' (between the two "I'm so sorry"s) is very similar to the "oh oh-o-o-o" in the Pretenders' 'Back in the Chain Gang'. I know some people who disagree, though, which is annoying.

Eyeball Kicks, Monday, 9 September 2002 20:06 (eighteen years ago) link

There's a bit in Happy Monday's "Loose Fit" that sounds exactly like "no more more mr nice guy" by Alice Cooper.

The Flaming Lips' Fight Test sounds just like Cat Stevens' Father and Son.
The piano on Spoon's All the Pretty Girls Go To the City is a lot like that Edwin McCain song Never Met a Girl Like You Before (is that what it's called?).

Oh, I love these. There's a ton of I-IV-V and "Sweet Jane" songs, of course. Bridge/chorus on "More Than A Feeling" = intro to "Smells Like Teen Spirit", for one.
Van M's "Caravan" = Counting Crows "Mr. Jones" sha la la la la la la
"TVC-15" = "We Are All Made Of Stars"
Iggy's "Search & Destroy" + Blur's "Song 2" = Hives "Hate To Say"
ooh, I know I've got more in my head, lemme think....

Back in '88 I was struck by how the chorus of Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" resembled that of Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name". Up through the years, I've tried to convince people of this likeness, usually without success... until I found, earlier this year, that Orbital have done a live version of "Halcyon" merging the two. Hah! Vindicated!

Back in '88 I was struck by how the chorus of Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" resembled that of Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name".

I hear a slight resemblance between the choruses of "Heaven is a Place on Earth" and Starz's "So Young, So Bad." Maybe it's just the chord changes.

Jody Beth Rosen, Monday, 9 September 2002 22:07 (eighteen years ago) link

The bridge late in the Chili Peppers "Give it Away" sounds an awful lot like Sabbath's "Sweet Leaf".

I'm sure there are several other "Sweet Leaf" rip-offs that I can;t think of right now.

more terribly, the offspring's "get a job" and "o bla di o bla da" by the beatles have very similar choruses (try singing one over the other sometime, it's horrifying).

George Washington and the Cherry Pickers' "Crisco Party" is basically "Wipeout" + vocals - drum solo.

James Blount, Tuesday, 10 September 2002 03:59 (eighteen years ago) link

Manics' "Roses In The Hospital" and Bowie's "Sound And Vision", although that sounds more like a semi-conscious "tribute" than either a cynical deliberate steal (cf. Oasis's early Beatles/T Rex theft) or an accidental appropriation (cf. Coldplay/Ride, probably and against my better judgement)...

Charlie, Tuesday, 10 September 2002 04:03 (eighteen years ago) link

I was just listening to "Wuthering Heights" by Kate Bush. It took me quite a while to figure out of what it was reminding me strongly, and it turned out to be "Paint a Vulgar Picture" by The Smiths. The way they both can't seem to settle into anything...

Furthermore, for the record: an obvious choice, perhaps, but Pulp's "A Little Soul" and Smokey R. and the M.'s "The Tracks of My Tears".

X-Press 2 ft David Byrne "Lazy" is a total rip off of Frankie Knuckles & David Morales ft. Alison Limerick "Where Love Lives".

Other than that, the similarity of the intro to Cast's "Fine Time" and Guns'n'Roses "Paradise City" could be pretty confusing at indie discos in the mid-ninties, just when you're ready to blow the whistle and rock out with Axl, Izzy and Slash you get, "What's it all about? Do you really want to know..."

Shit.

"The bridge late in the Chili Peppers "Give it Away" sounds an awful lot like Sabbath's "Sweet Leaf""

I'm sure that's no accident, given Rick Rubin's appreciation for old school metal.

The Manic Street Preachers' "If You Tolerate This Than Your Children Will Be Next" was alleged to have ripped off the Stranglers' "Duchess," but I find that a bit of a stretch.....and I'm a much bigger fan of the Stranglers than I'll ever be of the Manics.

Then, of course, Nirvana stole the riff from Killing Joke's "Eighties" for "Come as You Are." Little known fact is that my beloved Killing Joke stole that very same riff from the Damned's "Life Goes On" (on the STRAWBERRIES album).

Big Black's "L Dopa" off SONGS ABOUT FUCKING is virtually indistiguishable from Killing Joke's "the Wait".

The Germs' "No God" ripps the opening riff off of Yes' "Roundabout," but that's more willfull desecration rather than theft (despite the fact that guitarist Pat Smear is an unapologetic Yes fan).

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Tuesday, 10 September 2002 11:57 (eighteen years ago) link

The Cult swiped (via a sample) the ominous "buzz buzz buzz buzz" intro from Killing Joke's "Requiem" for the bridge in "The Witch" (originally on the soundtrack to the roundly derided cartoon, "Cool World"). Being the lovable bastards they are, despite being old touring mates, Killing Joke sued The Cult for it, and the sample was stricken from all other versions that have since been released (HIGH OCTANE CULT, etc.)

I was home sick yesterday, watched a Conan O'Brian rerun on Comedy Central and ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead was on, playing "Relative Ways," and I'll be damned if the main guitar riff (during the verses) doesn't rip the vocal melody from "On Broadway."

The White Stripes "Hotel Yorba" is a Country Joe and the Fish song, note for note, and even word for word at times. I don't know the name of the Country Joe song, but it goes "1,2,3, what are we fighting for, don't ask me I don't give a damn, next stop is Vietnam, and it's 5,6,7, open up the pearly gates" and could someone PLEASE tell me the name of this song? It fits so perfectly it's frightening.

Oh, and dancing at Mother to retro-ironic white trash trailer rock last night, I realised that there's a Sloan song which is Foghat's Slow Ride down to a T, but I can't remember which one it is.

kate, Tuesday, 10 September 2002 18:47 (eighteen years ago) link

Country Joe: "Feel like I'm Fixin' to Die Rag" I'll die if I have to hear it again. It's kind of a traditional folk song, so I wouldn't credit Country Joe McDonald.

"Vicious" by Lou Reed steals from "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart. I can't even listen to the Lou Reed song without "MM"'s lyrics taking Reed's place.

Butthole Surfers' "Human Cannibal" is "The Rose" by Bette Middler. Sing along. "Some say love..."; it's eerie.

Lots of linkage here, starting with...

Buddy Holly (personally written for him by Paul Anka) - "It Doesn't Matter Anymore"(1958):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygBo9Fmq5l4

Everly Bros (written by Sonny Curtis, childhood friend of Buddy Holly as well as member of The Crickets) - "Walk Right Back" (1961):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c048o_KvWsA

Buffalo Springfield (written by Neil Young) - "Flying On The Ground Is Wrong" (1966):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxYFZIDoCdI

Now let's go back to "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" as covered interestingly* by Linda Ronstadt (1974):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTOk1hn0euo

*I say interestingly as it melds many elements of the above songs into one.

Now skipping ahead 11 years to The Replacements - "Swingin' Party" (1985):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8ikJiKWubY

And to tie it all back together with Linda on backing vox... Neil Young - "Harvest Moon" (1992):
