Similarities in some H!P songs to other non-H!P songs?

"As everybody knows, "LOVE Machine" is Tsuku's interpretation of Bananarama version of "Venus" ...." from the love machine section of this site.

That site makes it look like common knowledge but is it really??  Was this ever officially produced in a magazine??  It does sound a lot like it.. the bass line at least.. and the whole "feel" of it.

--------------------


Also, they say Koi no Dance Site is a cover of "Dschinghis Khan".  I can hear more similarities in this.  It's almost exact.
http://youtube.com/watch?v=c3mIvZg8XIU @ 1:29 in the video.


--------------------

Let's not only discuss these similarities, and other ones you've noticed too.

Dschinghis Khan FTMFW!!! That song was on regular rotation in the IRC for weeks :lol:

marimari loved that song and vid :/


I can't really think of other off the top of my head.

I remember there being a discussion about Manpower, but can't remember the song it sampled.

I remember seeing a comparison between Aruiteru and a Korean song on YouTube:

I remember thinking "wow, this Balalaika song sounds a lot like A MILLION russian songs..." but maybe it's just coincidence? :D

that weird noise just before they start singing the song was thought to be a part from the Sabre Dance sped up and probably backwards?

I thought the beat to Osaka Koi no Uta sounded like No Doubt's "Hey Baby" I did have a clip where the beats of both songs were combined together.

and I remember alot of people mentioned that the guitar part in Sexy Boy sounded like the chorus of Billy Joel's "We didn't start the fire" :lol:

Sometimes it's just straight up copying from other songs. Like v-u-den's Bi ~Hit Parade~ and that N.E.R.D. song. And people said Nukegara's intro is like some Police's song's intro.

And listen to this song's intro. Which H!P intro does it sound like? :D

Oh God



Balalaika sounds like Neopolitan no Sauce, which is a character song from Negima!? sung by the characters Motsu & Shichimi.

Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari 2/3 is similar to Shuuseki Bangou no Uta, which is a character song from Negima! sung by Class 2-A (the girls all sing a verse about themselves.. go figure.)

Mayonaka no Philosophy (also from Negima!?) sounds like something Ayaya would sing.

Whatever Paradise sounds like Infinity Love 2U/YELL@ (both Negima!? songs)

Never Give Up! could be a W song.

Ponpon ryoute ni areba Win could also be a W song.

Kono Machi by Hajime Chitose could be a Maeda or Yuko song.

And I'll stop there.



(By the way, Negima! is the first series and Negima!? is the second, semi-AU one)

The beginning of W's "Miss Love Tantei" sounds awfully similar to t.A.T.u's "Not Gonna Get Us". Really similar. You can almost hear the words :doh: . I forgot where I read this, it was on thePPN or something.

"Miss Love Tantei" →
"Not Gonna Get Us" →

The following are both Tsunku produced but hey, they're not both H!P x_X. It's Berryz Koubou's "Special Generation" and Tokitou Ami (TNX)'s "Sentimental Generation" (XD they both even have a word in common). It's not actually that similar though, it's only in certain parts and the parts pretty much fly by pretty quickly. For example, in Berryz Koubou's, the "Special Generation" part and in Tokitou Ami the beginning ("bokura no sedai ga").

"Special Generation" →
"Sentimental Generation" →

On the note of Negima! image songs, I think I remember that I thought Chiu's image song sounded a lot like some other song. I *think* it was an H!P song but I'm not sure.

Goto's "Some Boys! Touch" was inspired by Madonna's "Vogue", both in terms of video and the song. With the song, it's the whispering part at the beginning that's the most noticable when it comes to similarities between the two.

Balalaika is the name of a Russian folk music instrument.  In the last 100-200 years it was also used heavily as an orchestra instrument.  So basically it sounds like a billion Russian songs because it uses one of the instruments most associated with Russian music.

Anyway, for one of the really obvious ones:
Berryz Koubou's Jiriri Kiteru borrows heavily from Chopin's Revolutionary Etude.    Not the first song to do so either, Kakumei from DDR is probably one of the better known ones to do so.  Funny is the number of times I heard "this sounds like a DDR song" about it because of that, without anyone recognizing the classical origin ^^;

Ï know that, I was being sarcastic, because if you search hard enough, you will always find similarities between different songs. Take a U2 song, and compare it with some Beatles songs, chances are you'll find one or two that make you say "hey, this is where they got that from". Same happens to H!P music, same happens to ANY music

I should have know better by The Beatles is similar to Berryz Koubou's VERY BEAUTY, although the first one is more country-ish.
And look for almost any good salsa song, and it's gonna be similar to 21ji made no cinderella XD
