17 Songs That Blatantly Rip Off Other Songs. Aside from the occasional Beatlesque song like "Roll With It," their songwriting doesn't remind me of the Beatles at all.
They've admitted to doing it- I remember seeing this documentary of Noel saying they lifted a T-Rex riff but they didn't give a fuck. 'Homesick' by The Cure (similar piano part), Don't Look Back in Anger -- Piano intro is 'Imagine' by John Lennon. -- 'Sunflower' by Paul Weller, Roll It Over -- 'Live And Let Die' - Paul McCartney: pre-chorus melody is similar. “We ripped about two songs off The Beatles and the rest off Slade.”. © Copyright 2020 Rolling Stone, LLC, a subsidiary of Penske Business Media, LLC. There are lighting-flash ‘what the fuck was that?’ moments in pop: I Feel Love, Tomorrow Never Knows, Fear Of A Black Planet, Outta-space – add your own favourites to the list. Accused of exploiting other artists’ songs in the Beatles, John Lennon defended himself by saying, “It wasn’t a rip-off; it was a love-in.” Paul McCartney’s take: “We pinch as much from other people as they pinch from us.”. Guided By Voices: Motivational Jumpsuit – album review, Ezra Furman: Museum Of Fine Arts, Boston – live review (streaming), Of Cracking Whips and Protest Punk: An Interview with DeLila Black, Peter Hook & The Light “Joy Division : A Celebration” dates announced. Just a few examples of where Oasis ripped off the Beatles: The outro of She’s Electric sounds like With a Little Help from My Friends, The outro of All Around the World sounds like Hey Jude, The intro of Don’t Look Back in Anger sounds like the intro to Lennon’s Imagine. They come close with All Around the World, having that "Na Na Na" outro, and I'm Outta Time sounds exactly like early solo Lennon, but none of their songs sound like Beatle rip-offs. For a band that insisted the future would sound like the past and then sounded like no-one but themselves, they were caught in the amber of their own legacy, too big to stop and too heavy to move with the tides. I could probably give you more examples if I had the time. There are subtle, incremental moves forward, there is re-interpretation, juxtaposition and re-contextualisation, there is gression: unexpected moves sideways. 'You Sexy Thing' - Hot Chocolate: riff is uncannily similar to the outro of the demo version, Round Are Way -- this song is said to bear resemblance to 'Lazy Sunday' by The Small Faces. Saying Oasis ripped off the Beatles is not a lazy assertion at all. Fade Away -- 'Pretty Vacant' by the Sex Pistols. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Part Of The Queue -- "Golden Brown" by The Stranglers. They Ripped Off The Beatles. 'It's So Hard' -, John Lennon: guitar intro is similar. Even now, when I tell people about it, I find few of them believe me. No-one listened to Oasis because they reminded us of The Beatles: we listened to them because for a few glorious years, they could do so much with so little.
When asked about the incident, Noel Gallagher said, "We drink Pepsi now."
Hung In A Bad Place -- 'No Fun' - Iggy Pop & The Stooges: main riffs are very similar, Songbird (Demo) -- 'I Should Have Known Better' - The Beatles: harmonica is uncannily similar. When Lennon played an early version of “Come Together” for the other Beatles, McCartney pointed out that it was very similar to Chuck Berry’s 1956 single “You Can’t Catch Me.” McCartney said, “John acknowledged it was rather close to it, so I said, ‘Well, anything you can do to get away from that. Columbia -- R.E.M's 'Finest Workshop' in the verse and a slight hint of Status Quo. ), (mentioned before) Cigarettes & Alcohol -- 'Get it On' by T-Rex. The Solo is the same as the solo on "My sweet lord", from George Harrison, (which, on it's time, was also sued by someone else alledging that it was a ripoff. Actually, i noticed that "She's Electric" is the same chords as "Lithium" by Nirvana. Yeah and the line from Don't look back in anger " thay said the brains i had went to my head" was from a lennon song and noel said " when i heard that i just said il take that". Was it the Searchers who did this before it was a Coke commercial? **By my reckoning: Pistols, Slade, Stone Roses, T-Rex, Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr, The Real People, The Jam, Thunderclap Newman, The Las, The Rutles, Stones, Small Faces (the obligatory one-per album knees up), Ride, Smiths, Crazy Horse, REM, The Glitter Band and even occasionally The Beatles! plus your comparisons are ridiculous, most of the songs you listed sound nothing like Oasis songs. The guitar riff on Supersonic sounds like the guitar riff on George Harrison’s My Sweet Lord.
“We never said we were as good as The Beatles. Guess God Thinks I'm Abel -- Verse melody stolen from "I Wanna Be Your Man" written by Lennon/McCartney. In some respects I’d say we’re better.” When Oasis promised a surprise announcement, the buzz went out among fans: surely there must be a reunion on the cards.
“You rip a few people’s tunes off, you swap them round a bit, get your brother in the band, punch his head in every now and again, and it sells.”.
The vocal harmony on, the end echoes from The Beatles' 'With a Little Help from My Friends', Morning Glory -- the same chords as R.E.M's 'The One I love', beginning similar to "Soul To Squeeze" from RHCP, Champagne Supernova -- similar guitar solo as 'Bring It On Home' by Led Zeppelin, D'You Know What I Mean? Pete Doherty once described his jaw as ‘chiselled’ but he’s let himself go a bit since then. The cruellest irony: when Oasis ended up looking dino, it wasn’t for their fascination with the 60s or their determination to place themselves in a rock lineage but for shackling themselves to their own history. Yet somehow, a lot of people think that they are similar to the point of saying that Oasis are just Beatles rip-offs. Oasis and the strange currency of originality in pop. Oasis’ brand of hype (“We’re important, like the Beatles”) would come round to bite them in the arse. Hell the Chili Peppers ripped Dani California from Tom Petty's Mary Jane's Last Dance, and those are both fairly well known songs, but I doubt RHCP needed to steal a Petty riff to have another hit. Yes, I KNOW that slinky guitar line is from Stereophonics (with perhaps a little nod to ABBA's "Does Your Mother Know"), but that whole songs sounds like "Street Fighting Man" to me — the blend of acoustic/electric guitars; the beat; the big, ringing "B" chord (I think).
Don't Go Away -- similar intro as in 'One' by U2.
