A judge ruled that they copied the song Kookaburra Sitting in the Old Gum Tree with "Down Under". Do you think that is right?
i don't think they sound alike at all. here is a video clip comparing the two:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCyB2l5wqLEwhy come after them now? Down Under is a really old song. if they sound similar, I condier it an homage to the song, since it is a famous Australian song.anyway it is one of the sexiest songs out there...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNT7uZf7lew
What they're saying is that just the flute riff is Kookaburra. Personally I recognized that the first time I heard it, and always assumed it was deliberate.
It doesn't sound copied to me, just a similar flute 'riff'. They played a portion on the national news tonight and the presenters said "Do you think these sound the same"... followed by, "no, nor did we".
I agree, didn't see that they really did anything wrong.
Isn't that what every Rap performer does?
