There are similiarities in the melody, but not in the chord progressions or anything else.

You only need to steal the melody for it to count as musical plagiarism.

they are only similar to each other, and only in the vocal melody. Do you really think that Colplay ripped off your band, its not like the melody is anything special. Its pretty standard melody and it is perfectly normal for songs to sound similar even if one writer has not heard the other

The creaky boards one was **** anyway, i like that coldplay song. Those songs are not even that similar. I also find it stupid they call it "coldplay +itunes". yes itunes wrote that song

That's a load of crap. You think that with the long history of music and the amount of musicians that it's not possible to coincidently use the same melody? I think this guy just noticed they were similar and is trying to make money from it...

Tons of songs sound alike, theres only so many progressions so your bound to end up making something thats been before. It's just like Greenday when they got sued by some country and western band nobody had ever heard of for producing a song with a similar tune.

lol they sound prettey much nothing alike, chances of coldplay stealing the melody is prettey slim, its just a coincidence. Every songwriter will unintentionally write something thats already written.

that dude just wants the bucks . . . .

Note that the word "steal" was used. Stealing is not coincidental, it's deliberate, and that is what the guy on youtube is inferring.

So no, it's not crap. Stealing Melodies is musical plagiarism.

The first time I heard it I recognized it. But I don't even know this other song. Well I might but I just don't recognize the name etc.

I knew this would turn into coldplay bashing. Just because you are jealous because your band hasnt made it or had a chance to 'sell out' doesnt mean you should bash bands. Really there is no reason at all for you to bash the band since that has nothing to do with the topic, you dont like it, why mention it.

Onto the topic, no coldplay didnt steal the melody or anything, it sounds similar, who cares, most of rock uses the same old chord progression.

And yet still they sell records, so they must be doing something right. Also I dont really see many people go into coma's when they listen to their music.

Try going to one of their gigs.

So you pay to go to their gigs to go to sleep, no wonder humanity as a whole is failing. If you dont like them, dont buy their music, dont talk about them, simple.

^Parachutes is a great album, but after that all their material is just too 'obvious' I think, and as such, largely shite.
