Don't compare the two.

They completely stole the riff.

Because she seems to think the multitudes of people who found LIT reminiscent of Streets are crazy, and I was attempting to show that members of the mainstream media didn't agree with her.

I gots plenty of mah own werds.

I'm confident enough with my own opinions, thanks.

We share the same biology regardless of idiology
And what will save us me and you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Uh, no.

I got frustrated with Rob (once!) because he implied that Streets and LIT shared the same chord progression. And then I got frustrated with someone else who said that I was right, but that I should be able to recognise an "Edge-chord"! I disagreed with two people on purely musical terms. When did I ever use the term "crazy"? Stop twisting my words.

You mistook his yoga session for a tantric sex session.

I just listened to Panic In Detroit and HMTMKMKM.

Having played both riffs myself on guitar, I know for a fact that they're not the same. Similar-ish. Kind of. Maybe. Bowie's riff is slower and involves fewer chord changes.
