•   days until the Eurovision Song Contest Final in Turin!

Sound familiar...?

  1. Inspired by Mini Me's amazing song "Yes" (Lithuanian NF 2008) which, as it turned out, wasn't plagiarized from a tampon/sanitary towl advert as I once thought :P as well as all the accusations of plagiarism which seem to have blighted the 2009 season, I thought it would be a fun idea to share with each other, the songs which have made us say "now where have I heard that before?"

    Here's a few of my favourites:

    > "King" - Natasha & Charlene (Malta 2009) watch here, compared with "Up" by the Saturdays (UK) watch here
    > "Lietuva" - Deivis (Lithuania 2009) watch here, compared with "There She Goes" by Sixpence None The Richer / The LAs (USA) watch here

    P.S. I swear, Mini Me's song was stolen from an advert on TV, I just can't remember which one, there are sooo many...:P

    P.P.S. If anyone posts "La Voix" or Cookies 'n' Beans song for that matter, I will end you.

  7. Kevin, I see your Soni Malaj and raise you "Superhero" by Alexander Panayatov (Ukraine 2009) - careful though, it's seriously scary...

    Sheep!!!:o The Maltese song and "Up" are literally identical!! I know Malta have been doing rather crap at eurovision recently but they shouldn't resort to copying songs, they should follow our example which is: when you're doing crap at esc, copy somebody elses video, but not song!!

    omg i dno wether to love this or be scared of it and omg its almost the same :o

    On the whole I think 2009 has smashed all records in the history of esc, for having the most plagiarised songs (including NF's obv.) PAR-TAY!!! :D
  11. ROFL, but really can you steal a music video?! :P If so then the majority of hip-hop/rap artists should be contacting their lawyers (i.e. sharpening their knives and loading their guns)...
  12. Jonny Ginger Tory Witch

    lmao good point, and every gangtsa rap song would be a plagiat cause they've all got the phrase "smack ma' bitch up" somewhere in there :P
  13. Kevin New Member

    thanks a lot sheep!

    im now addicted to that song, and have been listenign to it all day on repeat :o

    isn't La Voix a copy of a famous song called messy-door-knobs or something ?
  15. Are you illiterate or do you like making me throw hissy fits?! :P however ROFL @ "messy-door-knobs" :D

    Ooh, and Kevin, it's no problem :) hehe, there is a studio version of it if you want to download it. And thank you for posting that video, the harmonies are amazing and it made me realise how much I love those 2 songs...especially "Era Stupendo" which is one of my all-time favourites.

  17. Mina Member with a "past"

    that's one of my favourite songs (I'll be there) but I had totally forgotten the first notes..they are indeed exactly the same as Randajad:o..although the rest of the song is different.
  18. LOL Mina, the rest is different but the Estonians "copied" the best part of "Reach out" I think :D
