People keep saying that, but I just don't hear it.

I've been listening to Tom Petty since I was 8, and until you said DC = MJLD, I didn't even contemplate that connection... and, now that you've mentioned it, I just listened to both songs, and I still don't see how they're comparable.

Also: I know people like to call it 'Last Dance with Mary Jane', but I must insist the title is "Mary Jane's Last Dance". -_- that's bugged me for years.

Edit: Okay, having just listened to it once again... I suppose the verse of Dani California has a similar chord progression on the guitar, but the chorus is completely different, as is the bridge, not to mention the bassline. I don't know if the songs are even in the same key, because my ear isn't that good, but I'm pretty sure they aren't.

i see the similarity, but they ARE different.

It's not like Ice Ice Baby and Pressure.....where they are the same song.

there are differences. But they both have that jangly feeling.

I hear slight similarities in the verse, but I'm not going to even think that they stole something from Petty.

i never caught on to that before... but this mp3 link where they actually play the tracks back and back, and then play them at the same time... uh yea... it's almost identical.

i don't think they did it on purpose... but it's the exact same thing. they play the tracks together at the same time and you can't hear the difference.

now i think the radio staiton may have sped the petty track up a bit to get it to match, but it still matched perfectly

That's a pretty common chord progression.

hmm, very compelling argument

Maybe someone should fuse the two, isn't that a new trend lately?
