Carbon copy songs
« on: October 30, 2011, 05:45:13 PM »

Songs that seem to be a copy of previously released ones. The following examples are songs released even the same year of the supposedly copied ones. First song is the original and the second one is the copy. Copies or not, I like them all.

"You Really Got Me" (The Kinks, 1964) = "All Day And All Of The Night" (The Kinks, 1964)

The Kinks - You Really Got Me


the kinks all day and all of the night


"The Last Time" (The Rolling Stones, 1965) = "A Legal Matter" (The Who, 1965)

Rolling Stones - The Last Time (1965)


the who- a legal matter (Embedding disabled, limit reached)

"Plastic Fantastic Lover" (Jefferson Airplane, 1967) = "Bummer In The Summer" (Love, 1967)

Jefferson Airplane - Plastic Fantastic Lover (Embedding disabled, limit reached)

Love - 10 - Bummer In The Summer (Embedding disabled, limit reached)

Since we're on the subject of THE KINKS, how bout these two as follows:


"Tired Of Waiting For You" (THE KINKS 1965) = "Where Have All The Good Times Gone" (THE KINKS 1965)

The Kinks - Tired of waiting for you


the kinks -where have all the good times gone

Here's two songs that I always thought were a little similar, they are:

"Whole Lotta Love" (LED ZEPPELIN 1969) = "American Woman" (THE GUESS WHO 1969)

Whole Lotta Love Led Zeppelin Lyrics


The Guess Who-American Woman lyrics

Here are two other songs that have the same parody, FLEETWOOD MAC (The Peter Green Era) would influence THE BEATLES to write this song as follows:

"Albatross" (FLEETWOOD MAC 1969) = "Sun King" (THE BEATLES 1969)

Fleetwood Mac - Albatross


The Beatles - Sun King (2009 Stereo Remaster)

Not necessarily BeatlesForever. I just mentioned those curious cases.

That's interesting. I hadn't heard that Beach Boys' song before. Yes, it's pretty similar to "Ticket To Ride", from the chorus to the 12-string guitar.

The Kinks - Tired of waiting for you

I think that during the early days the Kinks were the masters of repeating themselves. However I find "Tired Of Waiting For You" to be more similar to "Set Me Free", also from 1965.

Kinks - Set Me Free


I know what you mean, "Set Me Free" does have a little feel of sounding like "Tired Of Waiting For You." I LOVE THE KINKS! Take care.

I've always thought that the mid jam session of "Echoes" by PINK FLOYD sounded a little like GEORGE HARRISON's jam song "Out of The Blue" from the ALL THINGS MUST PASS album. George's song came out first in 1970, PINK FLOYD'S song came out in 1971. I can't find "Out Of The Blue" by GEORGE HARRISON on Youtube, if you have the ALL THINGS MUST PASS CD, please listen to the song "Out Of The Blue" either on your stereo or computer in order to make the necessary comparisons. Here's PINK FLOYD'S "Echoes." NOTE: Move the song to the 7 minute mark in order to listen to the jam session.

I was going to tell you that. It's true that the tune is very similar even though the songs are different in style.

Just listen to the middle-eight, it's virtually the same! Other Kinks' songs that come to my mind are "Sunny Afternoon" and "Dead End Street". Do you think they're similar? I love the Kinks as well. Have a good night.
