[URL=http://]She Cries Your Name - Beth Orton[/URL] reminds me of Ode to Billy Joe - Bobby Gentry

I'm not sure why - can you hear it? I think it's the portamento strings.

Yeah,I can see where you're coming from re. the strings.I noticed a similarity on the acoustic guitar as well.Both good tracks.Beth's link didn't work for me so had to do a "manual".

There are so many "new" songs I hear that seem, at first hearing, to be sung by Michael Stipe, or James Tayler, even .... I hear them all the time but I can't remember any titles, sorry. Just more of the same sadness, misery, world weariness & angst. :wink:
Much more interesting the first time around!

@hingehead,
Well....Walsh released "The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get" in 1973, which contains Rocky Mountain Way.....Book of Dreams was released in 77....but that doesn't mean everything, Steve could have been playing that for years in the backrooms and such.

Edit: Wiki says Steve borowed from Joe....but also mentions Sly Stone's "Sex Machine" being an earlier influence....title does not ring a bell, will have to give it a listen.

@2PacksAday,
Thanks for that stuff. I was kind of hoping for some 'unconscious' plagiarism, but it seems intentional. I couldn't find 'Sex Machine' anywhere.

How come George Harrison got sued when this seem so much more obvious than 'He's So Fine' 'My Sweet Lord':

The player is in the top right corner, took me a bit to figure that out....heh.

The version I have is just a hair over 5 min long....this is a long one.

@2PacksAday,
Hey Cool - definite similarities, although Joe's is much more 'whitebread', straight 4/4 and none of the funkiness in Sly's.

Did either Joe or Steve give Sly a writing credit?

@hingehead,
Not listed in the title credits, perhaps they mentioned him in the liner notes...I doubt it though.

The Raconteurs "Steady As She Goes" reminds me of Joe Jackson's "Is She Really Going Out With Him?" with that little bwonk da da bwonk sound right at the first.

@boomerang,
Oh, I can hear it boomer. It's the bass. In Jackson's there's a bit more sustain. That dotted crotchet then quaver (or crotchet, quaver rest, quaver) pattern is very common in rawkenrawl. Definitely a string damper used on the Raconteurs track (almost sounds like plastic coated strings).

Earlier I was listening to The Pixies "Here Comes Your Man".

Later I was humming it, or thought I was humming it until I realized I was really humming "Never My Love".

There's a little piece of the melody in both songs that is very similar.

First time I heard the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" I said "Hey, that's the Kent

Oh oh! I've got a good one!

Green Day's 21 Guns (at the 3:00 mark)



sounds just like the theme song to Full House (at the 0:46 second mark)



I thought I was dreaming so I looked it up!
