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:
why 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...
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.

I just saw a hub with almost the same title and content as one of mine. What can I do?My hub is about nine months older, but much of the content is remarkably the same.

How many of you ladies have ever seen a man and said to yourself or to your girlfriends, "Yeah, he can do me." or "I would let him do me.) I am guilty. I do it all the time. Hell if a man can do it why shouldn't we be able to do it. Don't lie!!!
