Songs that sound alike

took me ages to notice this:

The Flaming Lips- Fight Test and Cat Stevens- Father and Son

Don’t the Flaming Lips have to pay royalties for that now or something?

From the look of it, yes. Still don’t get why they ended up ripping off such a well-known song (if it was intentional)

I hadn’t heard the Cat Stevens song until relatively recently, but was surprised at just how obvious a lift it was.

Plus

=

Smells Like Teen Spirit / Never Gonna Give You Up.

Whoa never heard that before, thats even more similar!

I guess not so much sounds like but almost a cover
