KC Booker - Lulu = Wannabe rip off?

Postby Stas » 16 Mar 2017, 15:47

I am watching the TV series Shameless and this song was playing in one of the episodes and reminded me of Wannabe.

They must've sampled them, otherwise they should demand credit.

But then again, didn´t Wannabe sort of rip off Grease - Summer Nights?

'Wannabe' sampled 'Summer Nights', it wasn't a rip-off. That song probably also samples 'Summer Nights' but inspired by 'Wannabe'.

The same kind of sample is also used on Black Eyed Peas' 'Let's Get Started'.

Off the top of my head, I can think of several songs that have sounded like that. Wannabe, Summer Nights, What Makes You Beautiful, Summer Sunshine...

Erm... Wannabe does not sample Summer Nights. A sample is when a portion of a previously recorded song is reused in another recording. The bass line of Summer Nights and the keyboard riff in Wannabe are similar, but they are not the same.

I don't think it's a rip off at all! What Makes You Beautiful by 1D sounds similar to Summer Nights.
