You know how they say there are only a dozen or so storylines in all of literature, and everything is a variation of one or several of these basic storylines? I think music is the same, except there are more than a dozen things. But pretty much all songs are some kind of combination and interpretation of only so many progressions and melodies.

    But let the law do it's thang, I guess. Maybe Satch needs to pay off his insurance debt or something, I don't know.
    Yeah, but that was REAAAAAAAALLY the same. Same notes, same timing/phrasing, etc. Same longer notes in the chorus. That would have to be one heck of a coincidence.

    Haha. Coldplay's melodies hardly sound original in the first place.

    I was talking to a friend today and he said in an interview Coldplay admitted to taking songs they like and trying to make them better and taking them for their own.

    If they really said that and are upfront about it, I suppose that makes it less lame, but not by much.

    I thought Coldplay was Dave Matthews for two years.

    I love Satriani, no wonder I thought the riff in Coldplay's song was cool. At least they swipe good stuff.

    at the Dave Matthews thing.

    I heard about this on the radio. I thought at first, Oh well they sound similar.. but it does sound horribly precise. Even if it wasn't intentional, which I doubt seeing coldplay's track record, they should own up to the mistake.

    I could see how two songs could be very similar by coincidence. In this case, it seems extremely unlikely however.

    It's true. You can't make stuff like that up. I just assumed that DM went in a new direction. It happens all the time, and his style was a bit tired.

    What if the British kidnapped Dave Matthews? - Parachutes by Coldplay - Epinions.com

    ^Someone else thought so. It was "Yellow" for me as well.
