I came across a video of song similarities on YouTube and I found it to be a rather fun thing to watch and listen to. So did these artists really come up with their own songs or did they steal them? You be the judge and see if you agree with me!
|1. Chuck Berry: Sweet Little Sixteen vs The Beach Boys: Surfin' USA
|Yes!||Come on! It sounds almost the same!
|2. Bryan Adams: Summer of 69 vs Green Day: Jesus of Suburbia|
|No||I do hear some hints of it, but not enough.
|3. Peaches: I'm the kinda vs Avril Lavigne: I Don't Have to Try|
|Yes!||Wow! Easily a ripoff! Even the stupid drum beat is almost the same. And the line "I wear the pants" just flat out sucks...
|4. The Beatles: Across the Universe vs David Usher: A Day in the Life|
|Close!||The verse is very similar.|
|5. UB40: Kingston Town vs Paris Hilton: Stars are Blind|
|Yes!||Come on, we all know Paris Hilton can't write her own music. What a crappy song...
|6. The Beatles: Hey Jude vs Michael Buble: Save the Last Dance For Me|
|No||Nah, I don't think it's that close...|
|7. Ghostbusters vs Huey Lewis: I Want a New Drug|
|Close||Okay I believe the video has it backwards, Ghostbusters is vocally different but the keyboard is similar to the guitar work in I Want a New Drug.
|8. Avril Lavigne: Complicated vs Vanessa Hudgens: Come Back to Me|
|Yes||Easy, Vanessa lifted Avril's verse.
|9. Jo Young Nam: ? vs Green Day: American Idiot|
|Yes!||Haha! What a great find this is! I think they sound very similar...
|10. The Kinks: Picture Book vs Green Day: Warning vs Big & Rich: Love Train|
|Yes!||Wow! The Kinks got screwed twice!
|10. The Rolling Stones: Get Off of My Cloud vs The Rubinoos: I Wanna be Your Boyfriend vs Avril Lavigne: Girlfriend|
|Yes!||Well clearly The Robinoos stole the Hey Hey You You from the Stones and Avril Lavigne easily ripped off The Ribinoos.
