    "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 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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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 agree. It was rubbish.

    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

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

    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?
