Separated at Birth

Some of these twins took a long time between them heading down the old canal:

The Jam's "Start" = The Beatles' "Taxman"
Goldfrapp "Ooh La La" = Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky"
Phil Collins' "Sussudio" = Prince's "1999"

Any other coincidences out there?

Well as per the other thread.

Opening only of Asia's Heat of the Moment and The Buggles Video Killed The Radio Star

Get it on (bang a gong) T-rex same intro as Cigerettes and alcohol by Oasis.

Oasis same as Beatles.

You're right about Cigs and booze, Lee. Blimey, I knew Elastica pinched a bit of ideas, but who'd've thought Noel might be over-influenced sometimes?

Any other obvious tune-grabs?

i only knew that one cos in one of the bands im in we play Cigs and Alchohol and Get it on, and the other guitarist starts both of them, its a 50/50 to see what happens, half of us join in with bolan while the other half go down the Oasis route, always a recipe for disaster.

'Baby I Don't Care' by 'Transvision Vamp' and 'Wild Thing', maybe its a bass thing...

Transvision Vamp.

They were great, weren't they?

That's sarcasm, by the way.

how did you get that big gap? you could drive a routemaster double decker bus through that!

Didn't claim to be a fan...but I am a bit sad, I research my posts, therefore, I happen to know that if you listen around the 2min mark they even use the der-der-der-duuuuuuuuuuur bit, I suspect I may be the only person to get 2mins through that song. :lol:

Don't get me started on Routemasters! I think it's a crying shame that they are getting rid of them all in London and replacing them with the hideous road-hogging "bendy-buses".

I went to see them once (Transvision Vamp, that is), I'll admit to that.

They were appalling. The guitarist with his Gretsch White Falcon was incapable of playing, so they had a second guitarist doing all the real guitar work on a Strat while the official fellow just posed with his instrument. For an encore they just repeated one of the songs they'd payed earlier because they'd run out of material. Absolutely dreadful.
