I’m titling this post “song-a-like” instead of “music rip-off,” because unlike Lady Gaga’s recent Madonna rip-off, I think this one is up for debate. A kind musician pointed out the similar choruses between Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now and Alan Parsons’ Eye in the Sky, but even he wasn’t convinced that it was intentional. I guess there’s only so many ways to write music, and overlaps are bound to happen. Listen below and judge for yourself.
I am a huge country music fan (and not afraid to admit it). So I was delighted to hear that Lady Antebellum’s second album, Need You Now, has debuted at #1. See them perform my favorite song below.
