Music plagiarism

The videos below highlight some of the shameless copying that goes on in the music Industry. Firstly Cathy Davey's "Reuben". I actually really like this song, plus she's Irish. bUt unfortunately the verse is a straight copy of Elvis's "Her Latest Flame". Ignore the dancing in the Reuben video by the way..

Next we have Texas's song In Our Lifetime which bizarrely enough is a complete rip of Creep by TLC. Left eye lopez will be turning in her grave.

Finally we have the strange phenomenon of someone completely copying there own song. Bodyrockers debut single 'The Way You Move' was a fairly mediocre dance song but it sold in its millions so when the time came to release a new single they pretty much released 'The Way You Move' mark II.

Brings to mind those annoying copyright theft ads before a film."You wouldn't steal a car, you wouldn't steal a handbag, you wouldn't steal a song?"
