Big Grin yay for U2 imitators!!

Anybody know who Rubyhorse is? they are Irish and have very strong U2 influences (or copying in some cases) in their songs and a lot of dance background. Oh yeah and they also copied the Beatles quite a bit on some of their songs...George Harrison plays on one.

but all that being said, I really like their cd

I saw this video on MTV today, it's by Jose Pardillo and has a Spanish title (but it sung in English) and it sounds loads like One. The chord progressions and all, and suddenly he starts out 'new love/new life' exactly like One. I didn't know what to think of it.

I'll check out Rubyhorse.

kinda like that Craig David song? I swear he stole the opening chords from One but seeing as I am not musically inclined, I can;t really tell

I do actually really like listening to Rubyhorse, copy-catting aside.

OMC NO KIDDING. I heard that song months ago (called Walking away) and I almost fell over cuz i first thought it was a cover of ONE before he started singing. I was like runnin around frantically but there were no U2 fans around to point it out to....I forgot all about it....

I'm glad someone agrees...

It didn't go unnoticed in the U2 camp either. At the Brit Awards U2 did a One-Beautiful Day-UTEOTW-Mysterious Ways performance medley to celebrate their Contribution To British Music award..and paid a compliment to Craig David by dedicating One to him personally, and slipping in a few lines of Walking Away at the end. Craig David I believe repaid the favour months later by opening with One and slipping into Walking Away at another show..possibly the Grammies..the two do blend together strongly

I picked up their cd a few weeks ago (Rubyhorse) on a whim.

Kinda dissapointed actually. The music is ok, but seriously derrivitive.

And the lyrics are complete shite IMO.

I think they could be a decend band, but I swear it's like their trying to sound like U2 and the Beatles among others.
