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/bg1sT4ILG0w (http://youtu.be/bg1sT4ILG0w)

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

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)

I was really pleased with myself for spotting the inspiration behind Radiohead's biggest hit when I was ripping all my Mum's music to iTunes for her almost a decade ago. Turns out everyone else had already noticed, including the original artists and their lawyers, earning them a co-writing credit and a share of the royalties:

Some songs blatantly rip off others, some just use the past as inspiration. There are BLURRED LINES (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp7Q1OAzITM) between those two extremes, though.

I find it quite sweet that the first post in this thread is perfectly true but doesn't mention that The Police managed to stumble across the very same clipped guitar sound featured on every second record released in Jamaica since 1963.

On topic though, I don't think you'd be going out on a limb if you were to suggest that, prior to writing  Firestarter (http://youtu.be/wmin5WkOuPw), Liam Howlett may very well have heard Underground Resistance's The Fury (http://youtu.be/vGzLvvBr6JI) and felt it needed a little dilution for the Reading festival audience.

Music is very derivative, and has been for centuries.

Rob Paravonian does a great number about how so much popular music has been ripped off from Pachelbel's Canon.  It's very funny!

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM

I was learning that piece of music at the time, and mentioned the skit above to my harp tutor. She then dug out some Welsh folk music that preceded Pachelbel's Canon some 300 years, and showed me how he had ripped it off to make the piece in question.

So in summary you can attribute a significant amount of popular music to 700 year old Welsh folk tunes.

That is true but what I hear (when I am forced to listen to those particular songs) is a bunch of greased up record executives sitting around a boardroom table deciding that the sound of the summer is going to be pastiches of The Police. It's like a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy. :'(

On a lighter note here is a modern day take on an old classic.

I'm embarrassed on your behalf that you even know those tunes, neebs. To provide a distraction which spares other boarders from clicking on those links out of curiosity, I'm going to note that most of the examples provided here are at least 20 years old. That's partly because we're all 35-45 and stopped paying close attention to music as soon as we finally fell in love with a girl, but it's also because the rise of hip-hop and dance music means folk sample other folks' tunes instead of copying other folks' tunes.

An essay I read recently pointed out that sampling's just making plain what has always been the case, that most hit songs start out as crude copies of existing songs. All the geniuses we think of as great original songwriters from the golden age of pop music were taking other folks' songs and disguising them just enough to avoid a lawsuit:

Got music on shuffle this week and Megadeth's "When" from "The world needs a hero" comes on.....nice tune, and then it goes all Diamond Head's "Am I evil?" about 4 minutes in.

The album was released in 2001, I bought it in 2001, I've never listened to the album in its entirety (it's mainly pants) and this song is the last on the album and I've never heard it before.

Outraged? Of course I was.....then I looked into it and it turns out Mustaine intended it that way. Git.

When I was at primary school, this was one of the rubbish religious songs we had to sing...

Water of Life (http://youtu.be/Mg7GPHFq-Ng) is the original title of the song.

It looks like it was only written in 1975, which means I was most likely correct when I assumed back then that the chorus was a complete rip-off of this...

There's a little bear, like you never seen before... (http://youtu.be/rY1aJ35sw98)

The main guitar riff on waiting for the rapture by oasis sound's embarrassingly like the main guitar riff on five to one by the doors.

Speaking of which, Gravity Kills rocked it up in an industrial style a couple of years before Manson, so when his cover came along it felt a bit 'done before' to me too. It's a great riff, guess it gets around a lot!

Surely the real scandal is that Muse are ripping off their own old records

https://youtu.be/w8KQmps-Sog

Although (like almost everything Marilyn Manson recorded in the nineties) those Muse songs are really just digitally distorted and compressed variations upon this:

Nah - I discounted that one quite early, but it's definitely the Rob Zombie track that I was thinking of.
