That sounds just like...
« on: 09 August, 2014, 11:30:31 am »
What songs remind you of other songs? I'm not meaning deliberate parodies of bands or artists but songs that, when you first hear it, make you think - well they certainly had a few (insert band/artist) records in their collection growing up.

For example when I hear these songs on the radio -

http://youtu.be/PIh2xe4jnpk
http://youtu.be/NmugSMBh_iI
http://youtu.be/bg1sT4ILG0w

I think that those groups might have heard these at some point -

Any more for any more?
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

I see what you mean, but tricking me into clicking on links to Maroon 5 and Sting means I'm going to have to put you on ignore. The early eighties look grim as fuck, don't they? Totally ignoring the point of this thread, the monstrous Tyranny Rex hybrid musical entity created by gene splicing Pat Butcher impersonator Jessie J, Beyonce du jour Ariana Grande, and butt with a face Nicky Minaj sounds like something I know, but I can't put my finger on it (the bang bang chorus specifically)

Guitar openers for...
David Bowie 'Queen Bitch' and Nirvana 'Been a Son'.
(not identical, but close enough)
Just a little rough and tumble, Judge man.

Oh no, Sauchie, don't do that. :o
I suppose the point of this topic is for me to bitch about how there is a recent musical trend for ripping off The Police and their weedy watered-down sub-reggae sound.

I'm not sure I even know how to use the ignore function, or where it is. Although, thanks to my tablet getting the jitters, I think I have accidentally reported everyone here to the moderator. Dog Deever's mention of Nirvana makes these comparisons inevitable; someone did a videos to save me posting lots of links:

NIRVANA VS KILLING JOKE: http://youtu.be/VRDu_ES1uXY

Nirvana - More than a feeling: http://youtu.be/vJx3dhrdPu4

Here's another example of wearing your influences on your sleeve before I go for a feed -

might possibly have influenced -

Uncanny or incredibly cheeky. :o

When I heard it for the first time, my instant thought was "Law suit incoming!!"

Could be worse. Could be Silverchair. Look like Nirvana. Sound like Stone Temple Pilots.

Some more to get off my chest -

BtVS Theme tune http://youtu.be/hmoU05_Fr5A
The Offspring - The Kids Aren't Alright http://youtu.be/VrZ4sMRYimw
Magazine - Shot By Both Sides http://youtu.be/gxahgaOQch0

Everybody used to say to me that Belle & Sebastian http://youtu.be/yS_DcqPkEYM sounded like Nick Drake http://youtu.be/idcaRTg4-fM but I always thought that they were more like Donovan http://youtu.be/kCtcXDCxh7w.

I couldn't listen to The Verve once I realised that Richard Ashcroft http://youtu.be/0ZIXxVvZrqM was basically a Northern Neil Diamond http://youtu.be/NsLyI1_R01M.
