That does sound very blatant but I wonder what percentages of songs just happen to be similar to others?

I met Satriani once. Seemed like a nice guy. I also met Steve Vai once, on a separate occasion. He seemed like a nice guy too.

I would imagine many of them do but that is some pretty covincing stuff.

Yeah, most songs that sound similar aren't so similar you can overlay them and it sounds like one song.

Cold play is the Greg Horn of music....


and Nickleback is the Greg Land of music...whats the point?

(although I've heard a good case against Led Zep. too...)

there are huge cases against zep.

I mean when I steal it's usually a line here or there in terms of lyrical cues. But I also have no problem fessing up to my appropriation of words. For instance right now I'm working on a song based on Carlin stand up but if the song actually gets recorded and published I'd give credit where credit is due.

I've thrown in the occasional At the Drive-In line in a poem here and there, but I'd probably never publish any of those ones. If I did, I'd footnote.

very similar, but are the guys from Coldplay really listening to Joe Satriani?

I think I saw something on VH1 once where Vanilla Ice said his "Ice Ice Baby" melody was different from "Under Pressure" by Queen cause it added one note.

And if it is exact, don't you have to pay and/or get permission from the original creator of the melody to use that music, ala MC Hammer and Rick James?

You mean, "Ice Ice Baby", by Vanilla Ice and, "Under Pressure", by David Bowie?
