Oh man! I have baked beans and eggs on toast all the time. I couldn't live without it.

I never realised till now how fortunate I am to have no allergies.

And I start complaining when I sneeze due to an ounce of hayfever. Pathetic.

Absolutely pathetic.

Are you talking about If I could Fly VS Viva La Vida? Sad it had to come to a lawsuit. Music simply has certain rules as to what sounds good and what not. Which means there's only so much you can do, and everything has been done before. Coldplay always stays close to those rules, which is what makes Coldplay so popular. It's easy to grasp. Unfortunately that also makes Coldplay sound like everything else. There are Colplay singles that are accused of copying more than 10 different songs at once. That's simply not possible. Even I once got a comment by someone who thought Coldplay stole a song I'd covered (follow the link to see). My conclusion was that both songs were build around the same musical principles, and therefore sound alike. I don't believe Coldplay ever intentionally stole anything. They're just not very original. The same goes for If I could Fly and Viva La Vida. Both songs sound different. The similarities can be explained by shared musical laws. Btw Satriani wasn't the only one who claims Viva La Vida was the result of plagiarism. Cat Stevens said Viva La Vida was taken from his Foreigner Suite. You can compare both songs here I don't think it's even possible to copy the melody and chord scheme of the chorus from two different songs at once. Like I said; Just a result of shared musical rules.
As for the bass line of Gangnam style and Sexy and I Know It. I just don't hear it at all.

Yes, thats the one. I did a harmonic and melodic analysis of the two songs and its pretty creepy how similar they are. I agree with what you said though... but I suppose there is no way to really prove if it was direct copyright infringement or a happy coincidence... but theres a part of me that still believes it is just TOO close for comfort to be a coincidence... in music you pretty much have three aspects: Rhythm, Melody and Harmony... La Vida is like a 95% match on all three... except its in a different key. The tempo and rhythm are exactly the same, the chord progression is the same... the melody is about 95% the same... the only major difference is key and we all know how that stuff works.

You're not missing out on much tbh.

Don't come crying to me when your old balding, greying and going crazy and I have lush hair and glowing skin.

Asian countries eat a lot of fish, that's why they whoop the rest of the world at pretty much anything. Well, at least that's my theory.

I like to think that I'm an omnomnomnivore... I eat anything and everything lol. My only allergies are environmental fortunately... the changing of the seasons often really sucks, but my life isn't really impeded much by them.

Apologies for the lengthy response.

You never know for sure that's true. It might be infringement. Still I think it isn't... Like you said there are a lot similarities. However, all of them can be explained by common song writing "rules".
The difference in key doesnâEUTMt say anything. That's true. If you play a song in a different key it's still the same song. But the same can be said about the tempo. It's still the same song, whether you play it fast or slow. So the fact that the tempo is almost (Viva La Vida being slightly faster than I Wish I Could Fly) the same, doesn't mean anything.
The chord progression is almost the same that's a good point. Viva La Vida has a basic VI VII III i scheme, while I Wish I Could Fly is an interesting variation on that scheme. Both schemes share 11/14 to 10/12 notes depending how you look at it. However the VI VII III i scheme is extremely common. Even Never Gona Give You Up has more or less the same chord progression (Fmaj7 G Em Am this is VI VII V i. So a V instead of a III, but those chords share 2 out of 3 notes so the scheme of NGGUU has 10/12 tones the same as La Vida, just like I Wish). There are a lot of songs sharing the same chord progression.
As far as the melody goes. The first three notes of I Wish I Could Fly are the same as the three notes of the verses of Viva La Vida after the anacrusis, but the rest of the melody is totally different. The melodies are up to 50% the same at the worst parts, though much less over the scope of the entire songs. Less than 20% I estimate. ThatâEUTMs a small number since there are only so much tones to choose from and there is a bias towards certain tones based on key, chord progression and rhythm.
At first glance both songs seem to have a similar rhythm. Both with a certain swing. That in itself isn't uncommon. When you play one song over the other, you hear it just doesn't sound right. On closer inspection there are several differences in rhythm.
I'm not even talking about the differences between the songs. The lyrics, the instrumentation, the mood, the style, the theme, etc. These things count too.

It's difficult to express similarities in percentages, but if I have to put numbers on it:

Chord Progression 80%
Melody 20%
Rhythm 50%
Overall Feel 20%

That makes a total of 42.5%. YouâEUTMd get an average of 20% for comparing two random songs. 80% or more for comparing a song to a shameless copy. 42.5% would be an unfortunate coincidence. Apparently enough to cause a stir.

Float with me for a second here.

Being a lump of stinging pulsing jelly... I don't get a lot of action. I just kind of go where ever the flow takes me. You'd think I'd see some mermaid titties once in a while but no, mermaids don't want to have anything to do with me. They just giggle and swim away from me.

Everyone is a foreigner :) But I'm not Norwegian if that's what you mean, and I don't understand what's said. I like the music anyway. IâEUTMve heard of the Kaizers Orchestra before, but I havenâEUTMt got any of their albums. Thank you for reminding me about them.
