(tune!!!)

which has always reminded me of the 'Clothes Show Music' in the UK... (the riff is the same)... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAAelPf62Xs

... then just found out that that riff is from the Pet Shop Boys and this ... 'In The Night'... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbboTu63kic

another one i made a while back was the soundtrack to a kiddies science programme... 'It'll Never Work'... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BXOv52O2hA

... suddenly sussed one day that it was 'People are People' by Depeche Mode... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZWw6pbqmfk

    Hey Migh,

    I often hear a tune that makes me think of another song... if I mention it to other people they just look at me funny. I have that happen often, but I can't think of a specific instance offhand. Although just the other day my iPod played these songs in a row.. see if you get the connection (If you don't I'll explain it):

    Pocahontas - Neil Young

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ihBRiHTaMQ

    Youtube thumbnail

    then... China Girl - David Bowie

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_8IXx4tsus

    &ob=av2e

    followed by Lust for life - Iggy Pop

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQvUBf5l7Vw

    Youtube thumbnail

    &ob=av2e

    Also shortly after it played:

    Hey Hey My My - Neil Young

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeH8s_RAuTI

    Youtube thumbnail

    &ob=av2n

    followed by Think Tank - PIL

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0BSC2UoXnM

    Youtube thumbnail

    (A much more obvious connection between these two)

    and thanks, while writing this and looking for links to provide... I discovered that PIL just made a new album...yes new.. first studio album in 20 years..comes out this month.

    Bony M- Daddy Cool

    I did hear last week on TV Jason Derulo ripping off a song from Toto. I'm not inclined to chase it down, but way to f*** up a song Derulo.

    Dude, jury duty sucks. I waited all day in a room with a gaggle of alternative under pressure persons, uncomfortable, drained, and in no way have been given the call. completely absurd technique. and that i hear you approximately controlling somebody else's destiny like that. Heavy stuff. grimy Boots, like it. Goo is my 0.33 my sought after album of theirs. Who says you could no longer go important label and make a kick-a** checklist? Thurston Moore is a hero of mine, no remember if he's making a music, enjoying, or making a music and enjoying. the guy purely sweats cool. I nonetheless like to grant Lee his due, him and Steve are the two underappreciated. i could desire to on all day approximately SY, even although this is all been reported till now. sought after music? this is surprisingly difficult. i will sneak in Trilogy: A) the ask your self, Trilogy: B) Hyperstation, Trilogy: Z) Eliminator Jr. I continuously enjoyed how that closed out between the suitable albums i comprehend of.

    Yeah it happens.

    I was listening to the album "Night Time" by Killing Joke and the song "Eighties" had a very similiar guitar riff to "Come as you are" by Nirvana which is a newer song. Then I checked the web and saw that Killing Joke's label has actually mentioned this.

    i was listening to Unforgiven II by Metallica, when i realised that the riff is a LOT similar to Children of the Damned by Iron Maiden.
