The Beatles vs. Diana Ross

Submitted by Richard

Diana Ross’ 1975 “Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To)” became a hit soon after its release in the film Mahogany of the same year.  Check out “Here, There and Everywhere” from The Beatles‘ 1966 album Revolver.

    “and when shes beside me i know i need never care” from H,T,E and ” do you like the things that lifes been showing you” from Do you know is the exact same melody.

    Thanks! I have been pointing this out to people for years! There are quite a lot of notes that were copied here within the duplicated melody (in the same key no less) and no doubt this would be an easy slam dunk plagiarism case but the Beatles were never that petty. Now compare that to how few duplicated notes it took for Bright Tunes Music to successfully sue George Harrison, comparing “My Sweet Lord” to the “Do lang do lang do lang” melody in the Chiffon’s hit “He’s So Fine”. Thanks for publishing this on the web for the record!!!

    Maybe that’s because, as Cracked says, they didn’t have much room to complain. Unfortunately, at the present time this site isn’t representative of the strong ‘influence’ others have had them, making it seem like they only influenced other people. Anyway, it would be the last time Diana Ross would release a song that sounds like a Beatles song; compare All You Need is Love (1967) and Chain Reaction, written by the Bee Gees (1985).
