Plagiarised songs

My Friend Jack

Recommended Posts

Royal Rother's references to a couple of Led Zeppelin songs got me thinking about the whole idea of artists nicking each other's ideas. Now the most obvious one was George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" which was somewhat more than inspired by "He's So Fine" which had been a hit for the Chiffons some 8 or 9 years earlier.


Another one - remember Stephanie De Sykes' "Born With a Smile on My Face" from 1974? And the Turtles' "She'd Rather Be With Me" from 1967? Spot the chorus?


Over to you, folks...

I'm fairly sure this is only me ( :) ) but there's a bit half way through the American national anthem which reminds me of 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas'. Anyone else? Nope...didn't think so...at least not until the next time you hear the Tarzan Stripes.
