Did Coldplay Rip-off Joe Satriani?

Blabbermouth.net – Death & Litigation week continues here at the Rim of Hell with an examination of the Joe Satriani vs. Coldplay infringement lawsuit.  Yeah, I know – pretty unlikely pair of musical acts to be involved in a legal dispute.  What’s next – The Sex Pistols suing Fiona Apple?  GWAR suing Neil Diamond??  Guns N’ Roses suing Dr. Pepper. . . oh wait, nevermind.

So anyhow, Ole’ Satch is accusing. . .and by accusing I mean pressing legal action towards. . . Coldplay of ripping off his song “If I could Fly” in their own song entitled “No One Will Notice”, I mean “Viva La Vida”.  See what illegal downloading causes, boys & girls.  Random acts of accusation!

Except that if you follow the Blabbermouth link above, you’ll not only hear the various press released quotes from each group defending their actions but also a nifty Youtube video which plays both songs, and then OVERLAPS them so you can compare.  Know what?  There’s about a 1 or 2 note difference between them – IF THAT.

I’m not saying it was intentional – heck, with musicians who knows what influences might creep into their work.  Right Jack & Kyle?

    Asking questions are truly nice thing if you are not understanding something entirely, but this piece of writing presents pleasant understanding even.

  2. I and my colleagues watch the football game clips at YouTube all the time, for the reason that they have in nice quality.

  3. Truly picture is the presentation of some one’s feelings; it gives the lesson to the users.
