Not just me then?

I thought it must be a sample or reworking but no mention on PulpWiki. Must be pure coincidence.

No idea, I do like these kind of things though. Someone once mentioned a recent -ish U2 tune was quite like an old pulp song- it might be we can dance again, but I'm not to sure, I can't really remember, but they did sound very similar when it was pointed out to me. It might have been even on this forum years ago.

We Can Dance Again is the Blake's 7 theme tune.

Just googled it, that's pretty close, quite funny actually!

Got it, city of blinding lights by U2, on the how to dismantle an atomic bomb. The same album that features the origin of the species

The intro to "Los Amantes" by Mecano is pretty familiar too.

Umberto Tozzi's "Gloria" --> Disco 2000's riff is more of a steal. Jarvis with a penchant for cheesy Mediterranean 80's pop? Surely not!

Tozzi's version of Gloria was a copy of the Laura Branigan song. Elton John, Saturtuday Night is also similar for Disco 2000.

Nooo, Branigan covered Tozzi, not the other way round. Tozzi's version was late 70s, pretty sure Branigan's was early 80s.

Just listened to Dion's album for the first time, it's called born to be With You, so is the opening track... and listen closely, it's like it's Born To Cry's daddy

The atmosphere, some melody and lyrics are very very... close

 

And later on the same record, Only You know backing track is pretty much exactly the same as... Don't Let Him Waste Your Time. Never seen the sample credited anywhere.

 

Jarvis is as guilty as Noel Gallagher biggrin

A little bit like "A Little Soul"

How about this? "One Man Show", anyone? (or is it just me)

I think the Smokey nod is referred to in the title of the song. It is a little soul, and maybe a little steal.

I think it's actually a sample, isn't it? It comes out a bit more when you listen to Glastonbury 1998 recording - Might not be that version but there's definately some backing track going on in there!
Not that it's bad - I really loved that both songs exist and it's kind of nice to work out, as a songwriter, that even your greatest hero just kind of steals stuff and makes it his own!
