Breathe Verse reminds me of Sheryl Crow for some bizarre reason... - Page 2 - U2 Feedback

I actually couldn't believe how similar it was.

/random.
There's another Clarkson song that totally rips off that hook from Duran Duran's Come Undone.

There you go! Good back up to the theory. Its such a great track though. Hopefully it is towards the end of the set.

I hear that, but an even closer resemblance is to Journey's God awful song "Faithfully." Check it:

With so many songs in the world's music catalog, it's not unusual to hear snippets of similar phrases and melodies in nearly everything.

I hear Bowie's Ashes to Ashes in the "out from under your beds" line in SUC. I even hear a tiny bit of the Supremes' "You Keep Me Hanging On" in Vertigo.

The Blender magazine review mentioned the Journey reference.

The electronic sound that transitions "Fez" to "Being Born" sounds like it was pulled straight out of Radiohead's "Pull/Pulk Revolving doors" or/and "Like Spinning plates"

The claim that the melody to Kelly's new song is stolen from that Sarah Mclachlan song is weak. I just listened to it. There is one minuscule vocal passage in the verse of each song where the melodies are a bit similar but the rest of the songs sound NOTHING alike. Come on, let's give ourselves a little bit of a break.

As for the Journey/Crazy Tonight thing...I'd obviously heard that comparison since the song first leaked but had never checked it out until now. That shit is wild. Those intro notes are nearly identical. But I say who gives a shit? Let's all steal from each other. And let's all keep fuckin each other until we're all the same color. Life is short.

The intro of White As Snow reminds me of Kid A's title track. Not sure there's much to that, but on a superficial level, I think there's a similarity.

I don't know about the song, but that part in SUC sounded like Bowie to me as well.

Reminds me of Stipe/Dylan/Lennon/McCartney/Of course ATYCLB as well.
