This Plastic Tree song
obviously lifts its verses from Radiohead’s
I listen to Radiohead (a little bit) and Plastic Tree (way too much) so I thought I should clear the air on the claims that people make about this, here’s a comment I left on the Pura YT vid:
This isn’t an open cover because the booklet attributes the song composition to Tadashi. Plastic Tree has done an open cover of “Turn, Turn, Turn” by Pete Seeger called 祈り (Inori) (Pete Seeger is properly credited in the booklet) so I’m assuming that people are getting these mixed up. I’m not here to defend Plastic Tree because the verse melody has been obviously lifted from My Iron Lung but considering that Radiohead has lifted in a similar way before (Creep took its verse melody from The Hollies “The Air That I Breathe”) I find the outrage a little hypocritical lmao.
Here’s a lift that’s from one Visual band to another. Arlequin’s
really did try and lift from this Versailles classic
“Good artists borrow, great artists steal”
If you’re an MM fan then you’ve probably heard about this one. The verses on Kozi’s
are a clear homage (or copy if you aren’t feeling generous) to the verses on Mylene Farmer’s
The bassline and tambourine percussion on Kuroyume’s
is very similar to Iggy Pop’s
Though these are just passing similarities, no one can copyright something basic like that!
I’ll let someone else do Greiva and Guniw Tools ones…
