Waaay back in June we posted the claim from the Creaky Boards that Coldplay had ripped off their tune for ‘Viva La Vida’. Now, guitar hero, Joe Satriani’s getting in on the act. He claims he wrote the tune.
This time round the song’s in the same key, and practically indistinguishable when they’re played together.
Hear for yourselves:
I’m still leaning towards coincidence on this one, but I’d say there’ll be some settlement somewhere along the line. I’d say Joe Satriani has a better legal team than the Creaky Boards. Here’s their version again:
I’m a huge fan of The Magnetic Fields’69 Love Songs. I’ve been listening to it for years and it still manages to surprise me. But like a fool I thought that there’s so much here to enjoy there’s really no need to buy any of their other records. How wrong I was. I picked up i this week and man, it’s got all the charm, wit and sopistication of 69 Love Songs and then some. Stephin Merritt = Total Songwriting Genius.
