Interesting book. Discusses songs that span the 40s up to today and how the sounds, melodies, solos, lyrics, and in some cases entire songs are "stolen" (consciously or subconsciously). He even includes the lawsuits raised and settled by many artisits against other artists.

A little basic in it's writing by Timothy English.
However, my interest in the book and whipping thru it stems from my lifelong "ability" to instantly recognize a similarity - - or out-and-out rip off from a previous song.

Example: Zeppelin ripped off many previous jazz songs from way before the Zep formed. I'm taking the book an extra step and been downloading all the songs he discusses and recording just the segments that sound identical.

My own findings are many, but here are a couple I've discovered in the Christian genre: "X-Sinner- Getchya" (the one featured on "Lightning strikes twice" comp)-at the very end the guitarist repeats the beginning of "Daytripper" by the Beatles. Also The Newsboys fun song "Shine"(Let 'em see what you have got, make 'em wish that they were not, on the outside lookin bored) Has an identical guitar tune from the older song: Hot Chocolate You Sexy Thing

There are MANY more. I've collected quite a list and have about 40 songs downloaded so far, but if you know of any off the top of yer skull, post 'em here and I can add them to my list.
One day, when I have a full disc of these kind of examples, I'll mail copies out to everyone.... who's interested.

I'm really bad at this and unless someone points them out to me I usually don't get it. I know their is a song from the first Day of Fire song that reminds me a lot of a Nirvana tune.
I'll try to see if I can figure it out.

When I see this I think of the Nirvana song we played at the recital.

At the end of Tourniquet's "Theodicy On Trial" there is a snippet of the riff from Black Sabbath's "Supernaut", but I believe this is more a "tribute" than just lifting the riff.

Wes King (one of my personal favs - very talented man), his "Life on the Vine" song cranks out an exact guitar riff that sounds just like Zep's Dancing Days.... unmistakable.

purposely.... or just coincidence ?
