Elton John vs. Boston


rh just sent this in.

I never fully appreciated the awesomeness of Boston‘s 1976 rocker “More Than a Feeling” until Guitar Hero came along and changed the face of gaming forever. Little did I know that the intro of this track is almost a dead ringer to the intro of Elton John‘s 1973 B-side  “Screw You”. Check it out:

Elton John - "Screw You" (1973)

Boston - "More Than a Feeling" (1976)

    To be honest, this intro is basically a variation on the D chord on the guitar, and while the bass notes sound similar, they’re not. The strumming is completely different too…Eh, not enough for me. Most of these are hilarious though.

    Bottom line: They sound similar.

    Perhaps the song are related. Someone else has noted similarities between Badge (1969) and It Don’t Come Easy (1970). The other songs mentione are all from 1969. Quote: The arpeggiated guitar part in the song’s bridge is similar to some of Harrison’s contemporary efforts with the Beatles, including, “Here Comes the Sun”, “You Never Give Me Your Money” and “Carry That Weight”, as well as Ringo Starr’s song “It Don’t Come Easy”. However, George Harrison himself stated that he didn’t play that guitar part. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badge_(song)
