to each his own...

there are tons of songs out there that sound similar...

it might be just me... but i feel like there won't be any good songs LEFT to be written in the future. i know there's infinite ways to write songs... buuuuut i just don't get how musicians do it in the first place... and i am one. haha.

i'll stop incessantly rambling now. =)

This is pretty common, just check this out:

though I do agree that coldplay is pretty much the lamest band to ever exist.

You hear something of that sort if you intentionally look for it.

or check out some turn of the century german expressionism and try and understand what it means to try and put your soul into your art.

"Maybe it just went over your head a bit. That happens to everyone at one time or another. Not everyone's a fan of Magritte, so you're not the only one."

i get it, it's not really a pipe, its just an image, wow, deep. if you want someone who interestingly questions the nature of art, duchamp is the man to go to anyway.

"Exactly where do you find pretense in this painting. It is what it is. It doesn't seem really all that ostentatious to me."

it makes an obvious statement about the nature of a painting in order to seem intellectual. and anyway all of his (can't think of his name because i was never interested by his works) paintings have a very mechanical style to them which i am not a fan of at all.

and yes angrytick zeppelin are gods.

I like Coldplay.

Believe it or not, some mainstream music is actually good.

Did they copy...? I don't know. I'll leave it up to the judge.

well all that doesn't matter because LED ZEPPELIN is way better than any other kind of music!

I want to buy/download/steal/youtube/whatever the Guitar rift mix with Coldplay's song.

That's a pretty kickass mix.

the real tragedy here isn't the obvious theft of melody. it's the fact that whoever made this video actually listens to joe satriani.

Wow, Coldplay should've asked Joe Satriani to play that riff over their lyrics--would've proved better, imo. But then again Coldplay is and always will be just pretentious college tunes crap. Spare me.

"Suspicious" Haha, no. I'm sure that with thousands of songs out there there's bound to be loads which sounds similar. I hear plenty of new songs and think certain riffs or part of the melody sound like another song, but I don't assume they stole it. Anyway, this is a pretty basic melody so I'm sure even more bands than Coldplay and Joe Satriani have something that sounds like it.

i definately think that when they had the joe satriani song over the coldplay song it sounded alot better then both of them separete.

they're the same because they both used the same type of cheap melodic phrases that are common to western pop music. instead of requiring the monkeys with the typewriters come up with shakespeare, this is like waiting till they all type the letter p.

joe may be more focused on melody than most of his contemporaries, but he still has all the taste of a midwestern housewife. and i've enjoyed some of coldplay's stuff, but let's admit,they have a formula.... not exactly ground breakers.

if (garbage == garbage) {
var ignore = 1;
}

Oh COME ON. I heard about this like 4 days ago. Honestly, speed up the press.

Anyway stuff like this happens all the time. Who really cares? It doesn't involve us or anything. But I like Coldplay. :D

I remember hearing about how Coldplay also "stole" Viva La Vida's melody from this French pop singer.

Whatever.

I like the orchestral sounds of Viva La Vida more.
