The first time I heard the new Foo song I knew it was a rip off of something, but couldn`t think of what.

It always saddens me to see musical instruments subjected to things that would obviously render them broken.

Also, seeing that both of those videos were from youtube just amazed me. I know it`s the largest video site, but still, there`s such a wide variety of content. I mean, who in the world posts a cookie monster song?

Okay, I know a lot of musicians are ripping off stuff left and right but that was a big reach. Good call agentkeg.

And the only thing that sounds the same is: "not like the others".
Didn`t really sound the same.

Heh nice. Maybe they wanted to relate how that they dont belong to this type
of society or something so they took that tune.

theyre close, but not close enough to count as a steal, he may have done it on purpose, or may have watched it in his youth and not known when he wrote it, but its not the same melody, there are off beats, and longer notes and such

""What if I say I`m not like the others?" doesn`t exactly sound like "One of these things is not like the others." This is quite a silly observation. When I clicked on it, I thought they would be comparing the music, not the lyrics."

I agree. It was rubbish.

Reminded of a far more convincing case of plagiarism. Listen to the song `Wipe Out`, originally by the Surfaris but much covered. Then listen to Nobuo Uematsu`s Electric de Chocobo, from the Final Fantasy VII soundtrack. After about a minute into the latter, there`s a distinct similarity.

I`m with icklevamp... I`m sure they did it on purpose... I mean if you`re going to steal a song don`t steal something as well known as Sesame Street.

It sounds like he used a line that sounded kind of similar to a line someone else said. The music sounded completely different. Also, that video rocked.

That was blatantly obvious, I thought he did it on purpose? It sounds like he`s spoofed the song to make a point right?

No one will believe me but the first time I heard The Pretender I made a joke by singing along to it with the words "One of these things is not like the other" cause it reminded me of it. But now it`s not funny cause it`s on the internet.

I laughed when the music video turned into La Tomatina in a hurricane. Otherwise, I could guess a connection, but frankly it doesn`t bother me.
