The Killers "Mr Brightside" a rip off of another song ????

  1. Hi I was listening to an old CD today from 2000, it had various songs on it and then it went onto this song called "Private emotion" by Ricky Martin, OMG I thought it was the Killers Mr Brightside.

    I love the killers Mr Brightside song but these two songs are way to similar. Have a look and see what you think, here is Ricky Martin's Private emotion

  2. The instrumental in the very beginning is slightly similar because of the chords, but I think it's a huge stretch to same they're close to each other. Even the acoustic version of Mr. Brightside sounds very different than Ricky Martin's song.
     
  3. Ummm, what shocks me even more: WTF are you listening to Ricky Martin?!?!!?!?! :wtf::nogood:

    :roflmfao:
     
  4. haha VERY old album with lots of songs on haha :p :roflmfao::roflmfao:
     

  5. yeah, right! :graucho: :rolleyes:


    (was it a "Now that's what I call Music"?!?! :p)
     
  6. haha, No it was Pepsi Chart 2000 < why ever did I buy it :push::roflmfao::roflmfao:
     
  7. it has the same hook definitely. but thats about it.....and admit it steve, you have a ricky martin poster on your wall right now don't you!?
     
  8. I love both songs and have listened to them a lot, and it haven't occured to me once that one might be a ripoff of the other. I have to agree that the beginning is similar, but otherwise, I really can't hear it :smile:
     
  9. ok, ok, I will admit it :sweatdrop:, I have 3 Ricky posters

    haha :p

    I do hear that the sample is pretty much the same, but do I care?! Nope! There's so much stealing/borrowing/remaking going on anyway, kwim.

    What I find even stranger are songs that are in the charts during the same time, sound exactly alike but are performed by 2 different groups :confused1: Like that "Dragostea Din Te" (was that what it was called?) song a couple of years ago
