Similar to "Only Women Bleed"

Post by Robbie » Wed Aug 26, 2015 3:23 pm

I appreciate there are only so many chord changes but the tempo, chords and melody on the verse of this song are very similar to OWB. I just heard it driving home and when I heard the intro I expected a cover!

Wow, that is too close for comfort. If this is a "hit" I can see a lawsuit in her future.

This one is too.
Yes, that's similar to OWB as well (and came first), but this new one sounds like a complete steal.
As Robbie said, it sounds more like a cover until the end of the verse.

Holy crap!! Right on both counts but more so the first tune - that's like the Kiss "Dreamin'" close. I have to say credit or no - I like when younger artists borrow from our old music.

Also reminds me of how Queensryche's "Silent Lucidity" shares some very similar to characteristics to OWB as well.

Sounds like a good "new" song from Procol Cooper :)

Wonder how close the guitar tab is to OWB

Re: the guitar tab.
Perhaps it also sounds similar because this song is in the key of G like OWB. The chord progression G A C on the verse is made even more similar because of the descending sound of some of the chord inversions too!As Si said definitely too close for comfort!!

(Joke)

Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"(~3:00 part) is a little bit similar to OWB.

It's possible that 'Cooper / Wagner' have an official credit on this track. Anyone checked?

Incorrect again. If was unlikely but possible, so I checked, the credits are Ben Glover/Gretchen Peters.

How is this incorrect? He asked if anyone had checked and yes I had and no they have no credit on the track.

Ah, in that case I apologise.
The poster asked (1) if it was possible they had a credit and (2) if anyone had checked.
Hence your answer of "yes and no" read as "yes it's possible" and "no, no one has checked". The latter being incorrect as *I* had checked :)

I misunderstood your answer.

I forgive you and even your sneeringly sarcastic incorrect again.

I checked to see if the writing credit went to Paul Stanley.

Oh dear, that really is a blatant piece of plagiarism. I can see this one being settled after the fact if you know what I mean.
